Gylfi Sigurdsson’s late strike earned all three points for for Tottenham Hotspur, who fought back from two goals down to win against Southampton at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
Southampton got in the lead from a defensive blunder after Kyle Naughton allowed goalkeeper Artur Boruc’s long ball bounce to set Jay Rodriguez through on goal and the Englishman impressively finished low into the corner.
The Saints doubled their lead on 28 minutes, again, from a Naughton’s gaff, as the defender tamely poked the ball towards Rickie Lambert, who quickly released Adam Lallana to score his first league goal in seven games.
Christian Eriksen reduced Spurs’ deficit from another defensive blunder when Nathaniel Clyne dived wildly at a Naughton cross to present the summer signing with a simple tap-in.
Eriksen completed his brace and leveled for Tim Sherwood’s men a minute into the second-half shooting past a helpless Boruc from close range.
The hosts leveler remained their only strike on target in the second-half until Sigurdsson scored in the final minute of the match.
The victory took Spurs within six points of fourth-placed Arsenal- though the Gunners have a game in hand- keeping every hope of playing in Europe next season alive.
