Comments:

League position: 16th Southampton had now won four of their eight home games in the Premier League under manager Ralph Hasenhüttl; one more than in their preceding 24 games in the division at St Mary's Stadium prior his appointment. They had now won consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since December 2016. This was the Saints' second win in their last 35 games in the Premier League against the big six teams (also versus Arsenal at St Mary's Stadium on 16 December 2018). After scoring ten goals in his first 176 appearances in the Premier League, James Ward-Prowse had now scored six goals in his last nine games in the division.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Tottenham Hotspur had now lost three consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since November 2017. It was also the first time that they had failed to win in four consecutive games in the division since December 2017. Spurs had now kept a clean sheet in two of their last nine games in the Premier League. Harry Kane scored his 200th career goal for club and country (349 games). He had now scored in five consecutive appearances against Southampton in the Premier League (seven goals) and also scored in his last four games at St Mary's Stadium.
