Tottenham overcame an early scare after defeating the Saints at the Tottenham Hotspurs sports stadium in a pulsating game.
Ghanaian international Salisu Mohammed was handed a starting line up in an unfamiliar position on the left side of defence in their midweek encounter with Tottenham Hotspurs.
Danny Ings struck for the visitor at the half hour mark but saw his goal equalized by an effort from Gareth Bale.
Southampton benefitted from a VAR intervention when son’s goal was ruled out, luck finally eluded Salisu’s side when the referee awarded spurs a last-minute penalty which was converted by the South Korean.
Tottenham are currently without a substantive coach as Jose Mourinho was fired from his post after a string of bad result which has kept the team outside the top four.
The defeat put Southampton to 14th on the league log with 6 games to go. Mohammed Salisu’s first season with club has been plagued with injuries preventing him from making an instant impact.
