This is where Mauricio Pochettino’s English Odyssey began, at Southampton six years ago, arriving here from Spain. And last night you wondered whether this is where he reached a fork in the road with Tottenham.
Southampton stunned Tottenham with two quickfire goals in the second half as they won 2-1 at St Mary’s to ease their relegation concerns.
Having been 1-0 down with 13 minutes remaining, Danny Rose’s error allowed Yan Valery to equalise (77), before James Ward-Prowse curled in a fine free-kick to complete the turnaround (81).
