LONDON: A superb 30m strike from Gylfi Sigurdsson in the fourth minute of stoppage time earned Tottenham a dramatic 3-2 win over Southampton which pulled them back up to fifth in the Premier League.
After fourth-placed Arsenal’s dramatic collapse at Chelsea the victory may set Spurs’ fans hoping against hope that a Champions League slot might not be out of the question.
It was the Icelander’s first league goal since last September. Earlier two goals from Christian Eriksen rescued a Spurs side who had gone two goals down in the first halfhour to strikes from England pair Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana.
It was the first time in 14 years that Spurs had hit back to win after trailing by two goals at home.
