Pochettino also had praise for Son Heung-min and Vincent Janssen, who will both come under scrutiny in Kane's absence, and the Argentinian gave a vote of confidence for the latter as he insisted the Dutchman will feature more in the coming weeks.

BBC reports that the defeat leaves the Saints 10th in the table and needing an improbable 30 points from the 33 left available to them in their remaining 11 games to match last season's tally of 63.

The Italian striker quickly settled in England since his January move from Napoli and was bidding to become only the third player to score in his first four Premier League appearances.

Even with Harry Kane out injured, the Dutchman can not get a start - he has been that disappointing.

As he trudged off in the 30th minute Dele Alli was fouled in the area by Southampton skipper Steven Davis and Alli picked himself up to stroke home a penalty to put Spurs two up.

How can we expect Spurs to perform with Son leading the line though?

Janssen hasn't lived up to his potential for Tottenham since joining from AZ Alkmaar for £17.5m last summer, and it's said that the Spurs boss is now losing patience with the 22-year-old.

33' - GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Southampton (Alli). It is his 2 time sitting on the sidelines due to an injury, and during the first spell, the Spurs were able to win 3 games.

But the visitors' frustration eased when they found a route back into the game just seven minutes after the interval.

On 19 March 2017, Sunday Tottenham Vs Southampton match will kick off at 17:00 PM BST or 11:00 GMT, while Tottenham will host the match at home ground White Hart Lane (London).

Spurs will instead be aiming for a Premier League-high finish of second place, while also ending their wait for silverware in the FA Cup after booking their spot in the semi-finals with their resounding win over Millwall last weekend.

Janssen has struggled to play well for Tottenham this season and has not contributed much to the team.

Then seven minutes after the restart, Toby Alderweireld failed to cut out Ryan Bertrand's cross and James Ward-Prowse got Southampton back into the game by forcing in the ball at the far post.
