29
Chiriches aims long after Sherwood screams from the touchline for his team to 'play'.

24
Spurs enjoying a decent spell but then give the ball away.

22
Eriksen with a clever free-kick and Sigurdsson earns a corner.

22
Excellent from Lallana again. He works his way past two Tottenham players and plays the ball wide.

20
Sherwood is asking his side to squeeze the midfield. It's been far too easy for Southampton thus far. Still 1-0.

Lamela has a chance to shoot but takes his time and is closed down. Disappointing.

18
Sherwood has left his seat in the stand and is making his way down to the technical area.

16
Spurs look a little rattled. They will need to find some shape pretty quickly.

15
Incredible the amount of space Spurs are allowing Southampton in the middle of the park. Fox and in particular Lallana really exploiting.

13
GOAL! Lallana is allowed far too much space from outside the area and he finds the bottom corner. Great finish.

12
Chambers has started brightly for Southampton. Attacking Rose whenever he can.

11
Eriksen dropping deep and Soldado's delivery is tucked behind for a corner. Adebayor wasn't far away.

9
Davis starting to take control in midfield. Can the home side make their pressure count?

7
Cork does well down the left but his delivery is cleared by Dawson.

6
Bit scrappy at the moment. Southampton not quite passing the ball how they might like.

5
Lamela hasn't had the best of games recently but is certainly intent on receiving the ball.
