He was then denied by a superb save from Max Strycek before heading in Pedro Chirivella's first-time cross on the hour mark.

Trent Alexander-Arnold added a third, twice beating his man before finishing with a powerful strike.

Jack Stephens netted the only goal, heading Callum Slattery's free-kick in off the crossbar on 38 minutes.

Harley Willard was denied by Spurs goalkeeper Tom Glover on the stroke of half-time, before Southampton shot-stopper Harry Lewis saved efforts from Kyle Walker-Peters and Reo Griffiths as the visitors pressed for a leveller.
