Premier League—White Hart Lane, London.

Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 Southampton

Scorers: Rodriguez (19'), Lallana (27'), Eriksen (30', 46'), Sigurdsson (90+3')


Spurs left it late, but overcame a stubborn a Southampton side on Sunday afternoon, winning 3-2 with the help of a Gyli Sigurdsson stunner.

The away side raced into a two-goal lead after Jay Rodriguez slotted home one vs. one and Adam Lallana reciprocated 10 minutes later—both a product of Kyle Naughton errors.

Christian Eriksen converted before half-time after a Nathaniel Clyne error to claw a way back into the tie, and the Dane converted at the far post just a minute into the second period to complete the comeback.

Sigurdsson sealed the three points with a spectacular 25 yard strike.
