Who was the standout player for Tottenham against Southampton?

Harry Kane scored the winning goal. Tanguy Ndombele was instrumental in the early stages and opened the scoring. Hugo Lloris recovered brilliantly from his mistake with two fine saves.

But perhaps there was an unsung hero on Saturday afternoon.

Erik Lamela came off the bench midway through the second half when Spurs were under serious pressure from the Saints, who had a man advantage.

The Argentinian immediately gave Tottenham a sense of control and the capacity to hold on to the ball for a while, starting counter-attacks and winning some crucial fouls.
