TOT vs Saints As It Happened
Key moments so far
- Saints well beaten at Wembley
- Kane nets hat-trick
- Alli and Son extend advantage
- Boufal and Tadić net consolation strikes after half-time
FULL-TIME: Spurs 5-2 Saints
Kane (3), Alli and Son see Spurs deservedly win here at Wembley. Boufal and Tadić with the consolation goals for Saints after the break.
THREE minutes of added time
Almost over, Saints fans...
Dusan gets us back within three
Nice finish here to make it 2-5 at Wembley. The Serbian controls and lobs over Lloris in the second phase of a corner.
Dušan Tadić (82’) | 5 – 2
Vertonghen denies Long
Big chance for Saints. Gabbiadini scurries to the byline and his low cross is somehow scooped over the bar by Vertonghen with Shane Long waiting for a tap-in.
Spurs 5-1 Saints (Kane 67')
Kane races onto Alli's through pass, holds off Yoshida and delays before chipping over Forster. It's a hat-trick for the striker who has been superb today it has to be said.
Harry Kane (67’) | 5 – 1
Boufal pulls one back
It's a goal for Saints and it's Sofiane Boufal. The Moroccan's shot has too much power for Lloris to handle and it sneaks in via a touch at the near post.
Sofiane Boufal (64’) | 4 – 1
Yellow Card for Shane Long (Southampton)
Shane Long into the book for a foul on Aurier.
Kane volleys wide
Almost a hat-trick here for Harry Kane. The striker peels away towards the back post to meet Danny Rose's cross-field pass and volleys inches past the post on the run.
Romeu shoots straight at Lloris
A bit of positivity from Oriol. He steps forward, plays a one-two with Shane Long and shoots straight at Lloris from the edge of the box.
Spurs 4-0 Saints (Son 51')
A mistake from Redmond springs a Spurs counter-attack. Alli charges forward and feeds the overlapping Son who fires past Forster on the run.
Heung-Min Son (51’) | 4 – 0
Spurs 3-0 Saints (Alli 49')
It's three for Spurs. Dele Alli sidesteps Romeu and rolls a shot past Forster into the far corner.
Bamidele Alli (49’) | 3 – 0
Mario off the bar!
Lemina lines one up from just inside the box and smacks it against the crossbar with Lloris beaten!
Lloris saves from Long!
A skewed back pass from Dier releases Shane Long one-on-one with Lloris. The Irishman loses his footing at the crucial moment and it's an easy save for the goalkeeper. Big chance.
SECOND HALF: Back underway at Wembley
Spurs get things restarted.
HALF-TIME: Spurs 2-0 Saints
Kane's double has put Spurs comfortably in front at Wembley.
Stephens denies Son
Kane's through pass carves open Saints for a third but Stephens races back to knock Son off balance and the ball bounces behind for a goal kick.
Spurs 2-0 Saints (Kane 38')
Eriksen into Alli, Alli into Son, Son crosses for Kane for a tap-in. Spurs lead by two now at Wembley.
Harry Kane (38’) | 2 – 0
Llories fumbles, Spurs survive
A look at just how close that Lloris error was to earning Saints a fortunate equaliser...
Eriksen drags wide
Spurs looking menacing here as Son, Kane and Eriksen all combine around the box to set up the latter to drag a shot wide of the far post.
CHANCE FOR SAINTS!
Saints almost hit back immediately in bizarre circumstances. Boufal's shot is pushed into the air by Lloris and Danny Rose's backwards header almost loops over the Frenchman on the rebound...
Spurs 1-0 Saints (Kane 21')
It's a record-breaking goal for Harry Kane. Cristian Eriksen's free-kick finds him unmarked in the six-yard box and it's a simple header for Kane to give Spurs the lead.
Harry Kane (21’) | 1 – 0
Strong work, Matt!
Spurs come forward again through Aurier but opposite number Targett is there to clear up the danger for Saints. The youngster slides in, takes the ball and wins his side a goal kick under pressure.
Balanced opening at Wembley
As you might expect, Spurs have enjoyed the majority of possession so far but Saints have just begun to settle here in the capital.
Danger from Son
The South Korean takes on Jack Stephens and sees his low cross palmed away by Fraser Forster. Aurier picks up the rebound but his shot is blocked by Matt Targett. An effort on Targett, if you will.
Bright start, Saints!
Early positivity for the visitors as Højbjerg's cross reaches Boufal at the back post and the Moroccan slams a volley into the legs of Serge Aurier.
Away we go at Wembley, come on Saints!

Saints team news
Mauricio Pellegrino has some notable injury headaches for this game. Charlie Austin, who picked up a hamstring injury and a three-match ban against Huddersfield is set to join Cédric (ankle) on the sidelines. Ryan Bertrand (hamstring) is also a doubt after missing the 1-1 draw with the Terriers.09.42
'Tis the Season?
The festive season has brought the best out of Saints in recent times. A Cuco Martina missile set up a 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal this time two years ago, a result that means we have won five of our last six league Boxing Day games (D1). A good omen...
