Southampton 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur: the Saints' player ratings

Tottenham Hotspur failed to beat the 10 man Southampton side on Tuesday afternoon’s Premier League and only to draw by 1-1. 

The hosts went ahead into the game courtesy of a great strike from captain James Ward-Prowse but the lead didn’t last long as the visitors equalized the game from the penalty spot before the interval. Mohammed Salisu was shown a red card in the first half and Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side had to play with the 10 men for almost an hour. 

Following this result, Spurs are currently sitting sixth in the league with 30 points in 17 games and on the other hand, Southampton is 13th in the table with 21 points in 19 games.

Southampton player ratings against Tottenham Hotspur:

Fraser Forster(7/10)(GK):

Got the chance due to the injury of first choice keeper Alex McCarthy and took full advantage of that. Made 10 saves throughout the game and seven of those shots were from inside the box. 

Kyle Walker-Peters(6/10)(RWB):

The Englishman struggled a bit in the first half but was solid enough in the second half and defended excellently to deny Spurs from scoring. 

Yan Valery(6/10)(RCB):

Made his first appearance of the season and started in an unfamiliar position. But, he did very well. 

Jan Bednarek(7/10)(CB):

Displayed a great performance and marshalled his backline extremely well after Salisu’s red card. 

Mohammed Salisu(4/10)(LCB):

Made a couple of bad fouls to pick up the first yellow card and on the second yellow card he had to make a desperate challenge. 

Romain Perraud(6/10)(LWB):

The Frenchman did his job well and defended well in the second half. 

Ibrahima Diallo(7/10)(CDM):

The midfielder was excellent on the day and showed his quality against a superior side. 

James Ward-Prowse(7.5/10)(CM):

Scored an amazing goal in the first half and led his troops brilliantly in the second half. 

Stuart Armstrong(6/10)(CM):

Worked very hard off the ball and helped his side in defence after going down to 10 men. 

Adam Armstrong(6/10)(CF):

Had to do the defensive work for most of the time after the Red card. 

Shane Long(6/10)(CF):

Started the game for the first time this season and overall a decent performance from the Irishman. 

Substitute: 

Armando Borja(6/10)(CF):

Had a glorious opportunity late in the game to score the winner but failed to convert the opportunity. 

Nathan Redmond(6/10)(LW):

Had to do the defensive work and did his job well enough to come away with one point with one man short.
