Harry Kane reacts on Twitter as Tottenham defeat Southampton in the FA Cup

Tottenham Hotspur squeezed past Southampton in the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to a late Heung-min Son penalty.

It was a fairly uncomfortable evening for the hosts, with the Saints good in possession and dangerous in the final third.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho admitted that ‘the best team lost’ after the game (Sky Sports), and serious improvements need to be made if the club are to make a real go of winning the trophy.

Despite being the home side, Spurs had less of the ball than Southampton (43%-57%) and had few chances (9-15) than Ralph Hasenhuttl’s visitors (BBC Sport).

 

 

It was a tough watch for supporters, with injured striker Harry Kane summing things up pretty well on Twitter after the game.

He said: “More stressful watching than playing! Well played lads #COYS.”

TBR’s view – Kane absence evident

It was the kind of game where Spurs were clearly missing their main man up top.

Son and Lucas Moura can take up good positions, but their link-up play compared to the England captain is fairly weak.

They are obviously much better working off of Kane trying to run in behind, rather than trying to do the 26-year-old’s job.
