Southampton produce sublime comeback to stun Spurs


Southampton scored twice in two minutes to deal Tottenham’s top-four chances a bitter blow as they won a breathless game 3-2 in a rain-soaked north London. Spurs boss Antonio Conte, who suffered a first home league defeat in charge, says his side are still too inconsistent and repeated his assertion that every game is a struggle. “I know very well, and I repeat, in this season we are going to struggle to get three points,” he said. “I said this before and I continue to repeat it. For sure we are improving in many aspects but we are still very emotional. “Against Leicester we won 3-2 when we were losing, today we were winning 2-1 and lost 3-2. “If we want to grow and try to be competitive as a team, the first thing you have to improve is stability. Not be up and down, up and down."
