The duel started in the best way for Mourinho. In the 12th minute, after an attack on the left flank, Ryan Cessenon found Tangi Ndombel in the firing position, and the Frenchman’s kick ricocheted out of Jack Stevens ‘body to find the Saints’ door.

However, the joy of home fans only lasted about 22 minutes. A quick counterattack by Ralph Hasenhuttle-led team ended with Nathan Redmond’s shot from a difficult angle, which was reflected by Hugo Loris, but after the addition of Shane Long the result was already leveled.

The visitors kept the force on to take the lead, and 71 minutes into the match. After a wonderful break through the center of Redmond, the wing was able to find Danny Ings, who managed to feign Serge Orieux, and placed a very moderate shot in the bottom right corner of Loris’ door for 2-1.

At that point, however, the Spurs suddenly found a resurgent force and found shocking two hits. After a double combination between Delle Ali and Lucas Moura, the latter received the ball at the Southampton penalty area and left no chance for Angus Gun to make it 2-2 in the 78th minute.

However, the drama would be complete in the 87th minute. Hyun-min Son was punched in the penalty area and the Chief Referee did not hesitate to point to the 11-meter penalty spot. Behind the ball was the Korean who did not go wrong to send his team forward in the tournament, where Tottenham will face Norwich.
