Midfielder inspires Tottenham Hotspur to a 4-1 victory at St Mary's

Southampton 1-4 Tottenham Hotspur

Dele Alli scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur ended their winless away run with a come-from-behind victory at Southampton.

The home side had a great start at St Mary's when Virgil van Dijk headed in James Ward-Prowse's free-kick after 69 seconds.

Spurs equalised on 19 minutes through Alli's header of a deflected cross before Harry Kane headed in his eighth goal of the campaign from a Christian Eriksen corner early in the second half.

Nathan Redmond was dismissed for a foul on Alli but Kane's resulting penalty was fired over.


The miss had little effect as substitute Son Heung-Min extended Spurs' lead with five minutes to go before Alli swept the ball home under Fraser Forster to seal Spurs' first victory in six Premier League away matches.

They remain fifth, a point behind Arsenal, while Southampton slip to eighth.
