Steven Davis scored twice for Southampton who ran out 2-1 winners over second-placed Tottenham Hotspurs at White Hart lane, Sunday.

Son Heung-min got the hosts off to a perfect start after chasing a lost cause and gliding the ball into an open net, but the high-flying visitors equalised through Davis, who slotted in under Hugo Lloris following Dusan Tadic’s cut. Jan Vertonghen could have restored Spurs’ advantage with a header cleared off the line, but Davis stroked in the winner for Ronald Koeman’s men

Having challenged for the Premier League title for most of the season, Tottenham now lie 10 points adrift of champions Leicester City and are hanging on to second spot, two points ahead of local rivals Arsenal who were held to a 2-2 draw at Manchester City.

Sergio Aguero fired City’s early opener into the bottom corner from 18 yards before Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud broke an 18-game barren spell to head in the equaliser two minutes later.

Kevin de Bruyne’s solo effort restored City’s lead after the break, however, Sanchez fired home Giroud’s lay-off to ruin Manuel Pellegrini’s farewell from the Etihad.
