Pochettino: Alli can play anywhere

And Pochettino believes Spurs were good value for their victory over Southampton, with Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli netting in the first half.

But, within seconds of Gabbiadini's withdrawal, the visitors were hit by a further blow as Alli was tripped in the area by Steven Davis and coolly converted the penalty himself.

But Southampton's impressive recent run will be on line when they face a Tottenham side who have won nine successive league games on home soil.

"I think it's the same".

Puel was also frustrated that, just before the second Spurs goal, Shane Long could not come on as a substitute to replace the injured Manolo Gabbiadini, even though Gabbiadini had already gone off the field. "If the referee gives a penalty for them, he needs to give one for us", Southampton manager Claude Puel said.

Fourteen of those goals have come in the league - four more than he achieved last season.

Tottenham subs: Vorm, Trippier, Wimmer, Onomah, Sissoko, Winks, Janssen.

"We trust completely in our doctor and physios and department that looks after them in the best way".

Hugo Lloris saved well from Cedric Soares's drive in first-half stoppage-time, with Ben Davies then fortunate to avoid censure for an apparent foul on Tadic, but Southampton halved the deficit within seven minutes of the restart.

They are unbeaten in their opening 14 home top-flight league games of a season for the first time since 1964-65. Belgium global Marouane Fellaini headed them in front after nearly half an hour's play for his first league goal of the season and Jesse Lingard scored the second just after the hour mark from 20 metres.

"Finding the net hasn't been a problem for Southampton lately, who have won their last two away games at Sunderland and Watford, scoring four in each of them".

Club top scorer Kane left the field with a right-ankle injury a week ago during Tottenham's FA Cup quarterfinal 4-0 win against Millwall and could be out for up to five weeks.

"It is exactly the same, we play the same system but different players with Sonny (Son Heung-min) instead of Harry and he plays a bit more deep but he's a terrific player and he wants the ball at his feet".
