Moussa Dembele says he was flattered to hear the fans singing his name during Tottenham's 2-0 win at Southampton

Moussa Dembele says he was flattered to hear the Tottenham Hotspur supporters singing his name during Spurs’s 2-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday.

The north London side made an immediate return to winning ways at Mauricio Pochettino’s former club thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

While Dembele didn’t get amongst the goals at St Mary’s in the Premier League clash, the Belgium international was singled out for special praise from former team-mate Jermaine Jenas on BBC Sport’s Match Of The Day.

And the former Fulham midfielder was delighted to hear the travelling Tottenham supporters singing his name in the stands during a comfortable win against the Saints.

Dembele posted on his Instagram page: “Thanks to our fans for singing my name during the game. Really happy with the away win! #COYS”

The Belgian playmaker has scored two goals in 13 Premier League games for the north London side so far this season.
