Pochettino feels Spurs have developed foundations to succeed

Southampton players celebrate

Southampton scored twice in five second-half minutes to stun Tottenham 2-1 on Saturday, boosting its hopes of avoiding relegation from the English Premier League and loosening the visitors' grip on a top-four position.

In the space of just four games, Tottenham have gone from the title race to an all-out scrap for their future in the Champions League.

Battered by Tottenham during a one-sided first period, the hosts played the second half with a relentless determination to cancel out Harry Kane's goal on 26 minutes.

Yan Valery struck his second goal in two games in the 76th minute before James Ward-Prowse scored a stunning victor from a free-kick.

Days after securing a place in the season's quarterfinals, third-placed Spurs face a battle to hang on to a top-four place in domestic competition and Spurs manager Pochettino - serving the first of a two-match touchline ban - questioned his players' mentality.

"I think these three points show us the way".

"It's about arrogance in a bad way".

"To play a semi-final or quarter-final of the Europa League as a quarter-final in the Champions League, it's completely different".

So disappointed. I don't understand why we changed the way that we changed.

"When a team wins an important trophy it's not only because we have good players or manager or coaching staff, it's having great people, a board, there that are thinking in winning and provide the structure for a winning mentality".

"In order to achieve a formal safety certificate for fixtures to be held at the new stadium, we are required to hold two Test Event matches with increasing levels of attendances", read a club statement.

"I feel very proud".

"We started to take some risks that were unnecessary and that was the main problem".

AS Granit Xhaka said after scoring the opening goal against Man United yesterday, we are "back in the game" at last.

"It's important now to know that we need to fight a lot until the end of the season".

On top of this, a threadbare squad must juggle the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"Everything you need to increase if you want to be one of the best clubs in the world. We need to do more", he said.
