Tottenham beat Southampton 2-1 at the new Tottenham Stadium in Round 29 of the Premier League.

Danny Ings came to the guests in the 30th minute.

Gareth Bale equalized for Tottenham in the 60th minute, before Son Heung-min added the second goal from a penalty kick in the 90th minute.

Ryan Mason, the new coach of Tottenham, won his first match with the team.

Tottenham raised its score to 53 points to finish sixth on goal difference from Liverpool, who have a fewer match.

Southampton, meanwhile, stopped at point 36 to occupy the fourteenth place in the competition standings.

Tottenham converted from late in the first half to a victory in the second half, making Mason equaling Jose Mourinhos number with Tottenham.

The London team trailed with the Portuguese coach by the result in the first half 14 times, but it did not succeed in winning after being late only once, in exchange for losing 11 games and a draw in two games.

Mason is the youngest coach to manage a match in Premier League history, at 29 years and 312 games.

Mason broke the record of Attilio Lombardo, who took over at Crystal Palace at the age of 32 years and 67 days.

The Tottenham squad included 3 older Mason players: Gareth Bale, Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderferlade.

As for Bale, with his goal against Southampton, he continued to shrink when he started the matches mainly, to contribute to his 11th goal, after he scored 9 goals and scored two goals in 11 matches in which he participated since the starting whistle.

While Son’s goal was his fifth against Southampton during the current season, after scoring 4 goals against them in the first round match.

No player in the English Premier League has scored 5 goals against one team during the same season since Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool star, visited Watford in the 2017-2018 season.

Son also reached his 15th league goal of the season to set his best goalscoring record in the Premier League in one season.

Tottenham will play Sheffield United in the next round of the Premier League, while Southampton will play Leicester City.
