Tottenham have hit a bump in the road in their final game of 2021 as Antonio Conte’s side were held to a 1-1 draw at ten-man Southampton.

Spurs have enjoyed a strong start to life under their news boss but the visitors were unable to break down the stubborn Southampton side late on.

Both sides survived on scraps early on before man of the moment James Ward-Prowse conjured a slice of quality to crash the Saints in front.

However, two quick bookings for Mo Salisu flipped the tie on its head.

Salisu’s second booking allowed Harry Kane to rifle home from the spot and Conte’s side dominated the second 45.

Kane saw a possible winner ruled out for offside before the VAR gods smiled on Southampton with Matt Doherty’s late effort chalked off for a foul on Fraser Forster.

Full Time from the St. Mary’s Stadium it’s Southampton 1 Tottenham 1
