Tottenham manager backs Vincent Janssen to succeed

"They have many offensive players of quality so they can do without him".

So this was opportune timing for Eriksen and his manager Mauricio Pochettino, as the creative midfielder ended an eleven match streak without a goal to open the scoring here and ease the anxiety of Kane's absence.

"I think (Son's performance) was good".

Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, full-back Matt Targett and centre-half Virgil Van Dijk are still out injured.

Southampton: Forster; Cedric, Stephens, Yoshida, Bertrand; Romeu, Davis; Ward-Prowse, Tadic (Boufal 69), Redmond (Rodriguez 80); Gabbiadini (Long 31).

The Saints did not have Italian hitman Manolo Gabbiadini at that time, but their January signing had scored six times in his first four matches for the club and was the one to watch for the hosts. "It's a great chance for them". "He's very positive, he's always joking about being fit after the worldwide break or in three or four weeks", Pochettino said.

After the interval, Eriksen was wayward as Spurs looked to continue very much where they had left off. They generally do such a good job of limiting their opponents that Forster isn't worked often - that may be for the best. Other hand, Southampton have also 3 wins in last 5 league encounter but rest 2 games of them were defeats.

Christian Eriksen has netted three goals in three Premier League games against Southampton at White Hart Lane.
