How Tottenham's players rated in their comeback victory over Southampton

It took Southampton just 69 seconds to give Mauricio Pochettino a nightmare start on his second return to his former stomping ground, with Virgil Van Dijk heading in from a matter of yards to give the Saints the lead.

It was a slow start for Tottenham, but they grew into the game as it went on and a deflected cross allowed Dele Alli to beat Van Dijk to loop a header over Fraser Forster in the Southampton goal.

Harry Kane scored a fine headed effort himself just after the break, and despite skying a penalty, he could take pride from that finish which gave his side a vital lead.
