Tottenham showed their team spirit is alive and kicking after they overcame a Hugo Lloris gaffe and a sending off to beat Southampton 2-1.
Boss Mauricio Pochettino said it would take time to find unity in his squad after a turbulent summer where several players either wanted to leave or thought they were leaving, but they showed promising signs in a rearguard effort.
Tanguy Ndombele’s goal put them in front early on, but after Serge Aurier was sent off just after the half-hour a calamitous error from Lloris gifted Southampton an equaliser through Danny Ings.
But Harry Kane came to the rescue as he scored a fine team goal, his fifth in the Premier League, to hand Spurs the three points that will go a long way to lifting the gloom at the club.
Needless to say, Spurs fans in the stadium went through a plethora of emotions watching their team play and grind out a much-needed win.
One of the viewers (a non-football fan perhaps) at the new Tottenham stadium decided to list all the things her boyfriend said during the thrilling encounter and you could say it goes for all the Spurs fans who were watching the match –
So my boyfriend took me to watch the spurs game at the stadium today…so I wrote a list of the stuff he kept saying to keep myself entertained lol pic.twitter.com/Uq7BtjEehW— chlo
