Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

So honours even on Mauricio Pochettino's big day - a slow start turned into a decent game in the end. There is still plenty of Premier League action to come, though.

You can follow it all here.

Ed in Brixton: I'm a Spurs fan but 5th is a poisoned chalice. I'd prefer 6th and no Europa league so we can challenge for top four without distraction.

Steve Claridge

"Nothing between them in the league, nothing between them on the day. Southampton may have edged it, but I'm not sure they did enough to win it. It probably makes Tottenham favourites now to get that Europa League spot."

FULL-TIME

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

The free-kick is cleared behind but Saints almost finish with a flourish when Jose Fonte heads wide. That's the last action of the game.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Saints have a free-kick this time, with one minute of injury time to go. Federico Fazio is booked for fouling Shane Long near the left-hand corner of the area. This is a chance, especially with Graziano Pelle in the box.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

I thought Graziano Pelle would be the target but instead Eljero Elia finds Toby Alderweireld. He diverts the ball goalwards but it is straight at Hugo Lloris.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Saints win a corner. Four minutes of stoppage time to go.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Tottenham start off stoppage time with a free-kick. Christian Eriksen floats it into the area, aimed for Federico Fazio, but Saints clear.

INJURY TIME

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

There will be SEVEN MINUTES of added time at St Mary's.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

There will definitely be a decent chunk of injury time because Morgan Schneiderlin is down and getting treatment. I don't think he can continue - Harrison Reed is going to replace him for Southampton.

While we wait for the change, the camera pans to Tottenham defender Ben Davies, who is back on their bench sporting a sling after his injury a few minutes ago. He doesn't look particularly happy, but at least he is no longer in pain.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

There is no final ball from Tottenham at the moment, though. The visitors are making another change, with Roberto Soldado on for Nabil Bentaleb. About two minutes of the 90 left to play.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Better from Spurs - they are enjoying a prolonged spell of possession in the Saints half.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino makes another change - Mousa Dembele is on for Nacer Chadli. Spurs have not threatened for a while, but both of their goals came out of nothing so maybe this is when they are at their most dangerous?

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Sadio Mane has been a livewire up front for Southampton all game and this time he wins a free-kick from Nabil Bentaleb in a dangerous position on the edge of the area.

Graziano Pelle gets on the end of the cross at the back post when Toby Alderweireld sends the ball in, but this time his header is blocked. No hat-trick for him - not yet, anyway.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Saints make a change - and it is an attacking one. Eljero Elia replaces Steven Davis.

Mark Stoney: Jose Fonte is playing so well this season that Liverpool will probably buy Yoshida over the summer.

Peter Collins: Spurs are so lucky Forster is injured. He'd have kept both goals out!

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

There are 12 minutes of the 90 to go at St Mary's, but that Ben Davies injury means there should also be a sizable amount of injury time for someone to get a winner.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Ben Davies has been receiving treatment, and taking oxygen, on the pitch for some time but is now being stretchered off. The way his arm is being held by a medic does not bode well. Vlad Chiriches is on instead and play resumes.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

That goal has set us up for a big finish at St Mary's but it does not look like it will include Ben Davies. The Tottenham defender slips and falls awkwardly as he chases a ball into his own area and it looks he has suffered a shoulder injury, potentially a serious one.

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham

Steve Claridge

Former Leicester striker on BBC Radio 5 live

"That pure strength gives him that extra time. He plays it across the keeper and it's an unerring finish, it's a wonderful bit of play by Nacer Chadli."

GOAL

Southampton 2-2 Tottenham (Nacer Chadli)

Well, Spurs didn't need 20 minutes, did they? They are level again, after Nacer Chadli holds off Maya Yoshida's challenge on the right of the area and slots the ball low into the opposite corner of the net. A fine finish.

Southampton 2-1 Tottenham

The Saints fans are the ones making all the noise again, "There's only one Ronald Koeman" has had a few airings today.

Spurs have got about 20 minutes left to find an equaliser and silence them.

"Graziano Pelle is a magnificent creature. It's a wonderful header. He's got an awful lot to do with it. Bang! He sticks it right in the far post."

GOAL

Southampton 2-1 Tottenham - Graziano Pelle (65 mins)

What a header this is. A classic centre-forward finish.

Shane Long makes an instant impact, sending in a perfectly-flighted cross from the right and Graziano Pelle is in the right place to plant the ball past the helpless Hugo Lloris. Saints are back in front

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

A change for Saints. Shane Long is coming on to replace James Ward-Prowse. He has around half an hour to have an impact.

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

This game has opened up a bit all of a sudden, and it is Tottenham's time to threaten, again via a deflected cross when Nacer Chadli's delivery hits a Saints shin and loops just wide.

From the resulting corner, Chadli tries to get on the end of the delivery but Southampton clear their lines.

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

This is certainly Southampton's favourite time to strike - they would be second in the table behind Chelsea if only second halves counted in the Premier League this season.

1. Chelsea 62 pts

2. Southampton 58 pts

3. Man Utd 58 pts

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

Saints go closer this time, when Ryan Bertrands cross nicks off Eric Dier and is about to flash under the crossbar until Hugo Lloris gets across to scoop it to safety.

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

Oh dear. Poor Steven Davis is still shooting, and still off target for Southampton. After a neat build-up, Graziano Pelle backheels it into his path inside the box - Davis goes for the top corner but finds the stand behind the goal instead.

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

BBC Sport's Nabil Hassan at St Mary's: "A big 45 minutes coming up for both these sides in the battle to secure European football next season. A decisive goal would see Saints fall four points behind Spurs with just four games remaining. Sadio Mane continues to worry the Spurs defence. He looks to be Saints biggest threat here."

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

It's fair to say Steven Davis is not wearing his shooting boots today. For the second time in the game the ball falls nicely for him on the edge of the box but, for the second time in the game, he can only send a scuffed shot trundling well wide. That was a real waste - no wonder the Saints midfielder hasn't scored for 14 months.

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

Spurs are seeing more of the ball but, as for most of the first half, they are not doing much with it. Ben Davies goes to ground after darting into the area but that was never a penalty in a million years.

KICK-OFF

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

Spurs get the second half started.

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

You can criticise Christian Eriksen's passing in that first half - his accuracy of 68% was the lowest of any Spurs player - but you cannot fault his workrate.

The Dane covered 6.5km in the first 45 minutes - only Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin (6.57km) did more running.

BBC Sports Olly Foster: We've already seen the Rabona from Erik Lamela this season. He calls that one the Diego. #COYS

Chelsea Warrior: Pelle's push on Ben Davies balanced by Lamela's handball. It's been that kind of game

Cameron Laws: Might have been a handball but certainly wasn't deliberate. Whether you think it's right or not, That's the rule

Here's Tottenham's Erik Lamela, appropriately celebrating his goal with both arms outstretched. That's not how he scored it by the way.

Jacob in Barnet: Abysmal defending by Tottenham, thank god for Kane because Tottenham's defence is like an average championship team!

Paul F in London: Fairly clear from the play, and atmosphere, that both sides have little interest in qualifying for the Europa. And understandably so.

Dan in Brentwood: I'm not surprised by Eriksen's passing stats, his passing in general since January has been sloppy and far from characteristic.

Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

Steve Claridge

On Tottenham's equaliser: "Eric Dier's put the ball in and Harry Kane's flicked it on - it's like a pebble skipping across the water. Erik Lamela deserved the goal because he's willing to make the run into the box. But I'm not sure he knows a lot about that finish."
