Tottenham vs. Southampton: Winners and Losers from Premier League

Tottenham missed the chance to secure second place when they lost 2-1 at home against Southampton yesterday and Arsenal could yet overhaul them. We have not won the league this year but there is still a lot to play for and that is definitely one thing.

And while Arsenal's main objective is to finish third and avoid having to qualify for the Champions League in a playoff in August, the England midfielder made no secret of being happy about Tottenham's loss.

In those three matches Spurs conceded five goals as the backline which provided two members of the PFA team of the season in Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose has been unable to maintain the excellent standards of earlier in the campaign. "After 2-1, we were a little bit luck, but that's what you need to win against these strong sides".

The victory left Europa League finalists Liverpool eighth in the table with two games remaining. It would be a blow not to but we go to Newcastle and still back ourselves to win. "If we can win next week at home, we will have 63 points - a really fantastic achievement by the team".

Koeman admitted that Tottenham could have gone to half-time ahead but praised Forster for his decisive save to give his side renew forces for the second half.

"It has been a long season", Kane said. "It is a good experience for us to learn for next season".

"I know how hard they work, so what he has done with this young squad is wonderful and he deserves all of the credit he gets. If teams are going to play harder against us we have to be ready and make sure we are better than them". "We've been going ahead, and then maybe it's a lack of concentration". Obviously Leicester has been a great story for the neutral but we are footballers and it is our jobs. "If they can add one or two more players, they will again be competing next year".

They will be watching with interest on Tuesday when West Ham host Manchester United, who then entertain Bournemouth on Sunday. "We like to play in Europe and it's important for the club and the players".
