Ben Davies reflects on Tottenham Hotspur's 2-0 win at Southampton
Ben Davies hailed Tottenham Hotspur’s vital win after a 2-0 victory at Southampton.
England striker Harry Kane broke the deadlock in the first half as Tottenham looked to bounce back from a surprise 2-1 loss to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane last weekend.
Dele Alli, who teed up Kane for the opener, scored his third Premier League goal of the campaign to seal three points for Mauricio Pochettino against his former employers at St Mary’s.
And Wales international Davies, who moved to Tottenham from Swansea City in 2014, took to Instagram to heap praise on his Spurs team-mates after the north London side hoisted themselves above Manchester United and into fourth place.
Davies wrote: “Crucial 3 points today! Vital to grind out results like this with a clean sheet! Fans terrific as always! 🙌👊 #COYS”
Tottenham are level with fifth-placed United on 29 points in the Premier League table after their comprehensive 2-0 win at Southampton.
The north London side remain nine points behind leaders Leicester City after the Foxes were 3-2 winners against Everton at Goodison Park.
