James Ward-Prowse cut the deficit for Southampton after half-time to spark hopes of a comeback but Tottenham held on to reduce the gap on Chelsea to 10 points once more. Yes, you always will miss your main striker.

"He has an unbelievable personality and everything's possible with him". Their cup run this season has been very impressive and they really should've walked away with the trophy.

Generally Spurs do have a very good record against the Saints since they were promoted, and have only lost one game against them.

And Pochettino told his postmatch news conference he believed the England global has the instincts of a centre-forward in the penalty area, adding: "Dele Alli can always surprise you".

"I saw him at 17 playing for Milton Keynes as a holding midfielder".

Tottenham have not finished above their north London rivals since 1995 but with 10 games left and the Gunners struggling for form, their lead appears formidable even given Spurs' tendency to experience an end-of-season slump. "Maybe one day he will play like a goalkeeper or a centre back or fullback".

- Since he made his Premier League debut in September 2013, Christian Eriksen has scored more goals from outside the box than any other player in the competition (13).

"It's good that you have on the pitch players that want to take responsibility to take the penalty".

"I think (Son's performance) was good".

Mauricio Pochettino, the Tottenham manager, declined to disclose how Walker picked up the injury during his pre-match press conference today.

A previously confident Spurs side faced a nervy second half and failed to reassert their dominance as Southampton sought a second goal, but the equaliser did not arrive as Claude Puel's men failed to turn their momentum into genuine chances. "If the referee gives a penalty for the first then he needed to give penalty for us. I can not see the difference". The second half was better, interesting because we recovered well.

"We trust completely in our doctor and physios and department that looks after them in the best way". "It's true it's a hard task for us to find in the English market the right profile or player to add".
