Nathan Redmond had started for Southampton in a more central position alongside Ings in attack and soon dribbled inside Toby Alderweireld before forcing a good save by the former Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Centre-back Jack Stephens then cut open Tottenham’s entire defence with a perfectly weighted but still well signposted pass from inside Southampton’s half. Ings ran onto the pass and, displaying all his vast confidence, brilliantly flicked the ball inside Alderweireld before wrong-footing Gazzaniga to finish inside the near post. It was not quite Paul Gascoigne against Scotland at Euro ’96 but at least comparable. Ndombele, a £55 million signing, was then almost immediately forced off for Tottenham with what a frustrated Mourinho estimated was his 10th injury of the season.
Tottenham did finally create two clear chances shortly before half-time. Kane’s shot from just outside the penalty area was sufficiently powerful to prompt a spillage by Alex McCarthy but he just recovered in time to smother Dele Alli’s follow up. The resulting corner did then fall invitingly to Jan Vertonghen on the edge of the six-yard box but he hooked his effort well over.
Southampton again tried to take the game to Tottenham at the start of the second-half, with Redmond volleying a clear chance over and then Alderweireld surviving a confident penalty appeal for handball. The ball had certainly been fired in powerfully by Ryan Bertrand – and it is doubtful whether Alderweireld could really have got out of the way – but it did very clearly strike his outstretched arm.

Tottenham became increasingly dominant in possession but were struggling badly to create clear chances until Kane’s last touch of the game. He had latched onto a free-kick but just timed his run to be marginally offside, behind Jack Stephens, as the ball was played. The disappointment of a raised offside flag was then compounded when he immediately grasped his hamstring. Tottenham pressed forward in the closing minutes but, beyond a Lucas Moura shot that was well charged down, rarely looked like creating an equaliser.
