What an afternoon at St Mary's.

With Kane netting the resulting penalty, it was a tense second half as Saints put on a resolute defensive display to ensure the scores were tied at the final whistle.

Davies caught offside
Spurs have the ball in the back of the net but the offside flag is raised instantly to deny them the advantage. It's Son's free kick that finds the head of Davies who thumps the ball past Forster but Saints escape for now.
Yellow Card for Kyle Walker-Peters (Southampton)
An early card for Walker-Peters as he tugs on the shirt of Reguilon.

First real chance on goal falls Saints' way as Walker-Peters launches in a lovely ball from the right and finds the head of Long. His shot bounces wide of the goal, but the offside flag is up anyway.
Underway at St Mary's
For the final time in 2021, Saints get things underway in SO14.
Tino had a kick on his knee, so there's a bit of fluid in his knee, and we have a COVID case with Ché Adams, so he's out. we need to have a few fresh bodies because we only had 48 hours from the last match to recover and this is why we had to change it."ralph hasenhüttlon squad rotation
