Nacer Chadli: Tottenham must keep faith and continue to fight
Tottenham Hotspur forward Nacer Chadli reflects on their 2-2 draw with Southampton at St Mary's on Saturday afternoon
Nacer Chadli urged Tottenham Hotspur to keep faith and fight in the race to secure a European place after a 2-2 draw with rivals Southampton at St Mary’s.
The north London side fell behind after Graziano Pelle rediscovered his goal-scoring touch, although £30.75m man Erik Lamela levelled for the visitors before the break.
Southampton’s Italy international restored the south coast club’s advantage midway through the second half, but Chadli levelled to ensure Tottenham left Mauricio Pochettino’s old stomping ground with a point.
Taking to Twitter following a four-goal thriller at St Mary’s, Chadli praised Tottenham for showing team spirit to come from behind twice and seal a place against fifth-placed Southampton.
