Southampton 2 Tottenham 1: Ward-Prowse brilliance leaves Spurs stunned

Southampton scored twice in five second-half minutes to stun Tottenham 2-1 on Saturday, boosting its hopes of avoiding relegation from the English Premier League and loosening the visitors' grip on a top-four position.

"The second half, we did not take it seriously, I don't want to criticise too much but when you lose a game that was under control after 45 minutes - we should be 3-0, 4-0 - and finishes in 2-1 defeat, it is hard to accept".

Southampton now have 30 points on the board following their seventh league victory of the season.

The Spaniard's decision to play his most creative, clinical players paid dividends as Arsenal turned in a complete performance to condemn Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to his first domestic defeat as Manchester United's interim manager.

While he had cause for celebration, another setback has left Tottenham sweating on a top-four finish. I feel a little bit sad and disappointed with the punishment.' Pochettino intends to read the written reasons for his ban - not yet received - before he decides whether to contest it.

"That was the best second half since I've been here", said Hasenhüttl as he reflected on a win that lifts Southampton to 16th, two points above the drop zone.

However, the crushing blow came via a moment of brilliance from James Ward-Prowse, who once again proved that he's one of the best free-kick takers in the league. For us, we lost the momentum and gave them relief. I don't want to blame someone, I want to blame all of us, the club.

"To play a semi-final or quarter-final of the Europa League as a quarter-final in the Champions League, it's completely different".

"Of course, maybe that is our limit".

"We just have to march on and the fans saw a team that is working hard and they believe in what we are doing".

"That is a clear example that we are still not mature enough", he told Talksport radio.

Chris Hughton's side took the lead through Glenn Murray's early goal at Selhurst Park before Luka Milivojevic equalised with a second-half penalty.

"If not, we are going to struggle and I think we can not compete only 45 minutes and then the other 45 minutes say, "OK, finished".

Callum Wilson opened the scoring on his return from a two-month injury layoff to aid his chances of making Gareth Southgate's England squad later this week before Ryan Fraser doubled the Cherries' advantage 24 minutes from time.
