Gary Lineker reacts to Hugo Lloris mistake for Tottenham Hotspur against Southampton”

Spurs have been besieged by problems after a summer of unrest in the dressing room, where a host of key players were uncertain of their future.

The game showed Tottenham's character, said Kane.

"Don't blame Hugo, blame me, I demand him to play in this way", Pochettino said.

"Whenever you go through a tough spell that's all you can do - dig deep and find ways to win".

"Of course, it wasn't the prettiest we've ever had at home, but it shows how much we care about the club". "I think this performance speaks for itself in terms of everyone fighting for the badge".

"We have just got to look forward".

Boss Ralph Hasenhuttl knows the chance to win at one of the top-six clubs may never be so good again.

The manner of the performance was timely given Bayern Munich's midweek visit in the Champions League.

Spurs managed to hold on for the three points despite being down to 10 men for most of the game. "You can't control that". "I was so happy for them, my players, my squad, we have unbelievable players, only we needed to recover the spirit that we showed today".

The game will be broadcasted on BT Sport 2 but if you can not watch the game, your best bet would be to stick with us on Vavel and read our live text commentary of the game.

"As a team it is important to try and get a win as soon as possible". "We know how tough it was previous year when we didn't win for the first few games in the Champions League".

"Especially being at home, we have got to take advantage of that, it will be a great atmosphere. We are delighted with it and hopefully we can push on from here".

Just a few minutes after that red card, things got even more hard as Southampton equalised thanks to a bad error from Lloris, who tried to turn on the ball in front of his own goal, only to be tackled by Danny Ings, who levelled the scores. But the tactic will save more goals and keep possession more often than conceding the odd mistake. I was really upset with myself, but that's normal.

The Saints were searching for an equaliser desperately, throwing everything at the ten men of Tottenham - but Lloris, who had a point to prove in the second half following his blunder, saved magnificently from a James Ward-Prowse free-kick and pulled off a wonderful stop to deny Maya Yoshida's header.
