After an equal opening half hour or so at St Mary’s, some calamitous Tottenham defending led to the first goal of the game.
Ryan Mason slipped on the edge of the Spurs penalty area, forcing himself into a poor back pass. Ben Davies failed to stand firm and Pelle tapped in for Southampton.
Here’s the goal…
And here’s how Twitter reacted.

That was the most calamitous bit of defending I've seen from any team this season #THFC

What a stupid goal to give away. Beating ourselves again!

Mason's slip there reminded me a little of Dawson's slip at Wembley. So unfortunate. But, regardless of that, Davies should have stood firm.
