Antonio Conte remains unbeaten in the Premier League as Tottenham held to a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur remains at 6th position in the League as Conte’s men were held to a 1-1 draw against Southampton on Tuesday. Harry Kane scored two in two games in the Premier League for Spurs.

Tottenham Hotspur was held to a draw against Southampton on Tuesday as they remain in the 6th position with 2 games in hand. Tottenham is on 30 points and could be in the top four as they have played fewer games than the other teams due to COVID-19 outbreak cases. If Antonio Conte’s men win both their games in hand then they will be in the top 4 above Arsenal and fifth-placed team West Ham who defeated Watford by 4-1 on Tuesday. Since Antonio Conte’s appointment as Spurs’ manager, the team hasn’t lost a single game in the Premier League and since his arrival, only two managers have remained unbeaten in the league, one is Conte and another is league leaders Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola.

On Tuesday, Spurs’ players were at St. Mary’s Stadium to play an away game against Southampton. Despite that the host was playing with 10-men for more than an hour, Spurs couldn’t take advantage of that and they were able to take only one point from this game. Southampton’s star player James Ward-Prowse scored the opening goal and it was the home team who took the lead in this game. It was a marvelous strike from the set-piece specialist (J. Ward-Prowse) as he shoots the ball into the right corner which gave no chance for Hugo Lloris to save it.

Minutes later, when Spurs’ forward Son Heung-min was running with the ball, Saints’ defender Salisu brought him down and was shown a red card by the referee for that challenge. Harry Kane had a chance to equalize from the spot and he made no mistake in putting the ball into the back of the net. Both the teams were leveled in the terms of the scoreline.

Despite, the home team was playing with one man down in the whole second half, Tottenham Hotspur couldn’t even score a single goal and thus it was 1-1 at the end. However, English striker Harry Kane did score at the start of the half but that goal was disallowed by VAR as Harry Kane was offside by a fraction.
