Kane has a go at goal from a tight angle on the turn at the near post, but Bazunu makes his body big to make the save and Spurs have a late corner in this first half.
TWO ADDED MINUTES
There will be two added minutes at the end of this first half.
Son sends it over after Southampton are caught out!
The attacker gets the ball on the left side, before cutting inside and waiting for the right time to shoot. He opts to have a go from inside the box after riding some challenges, but the contact is not clean, and the shot goes over the bar!
CORNER TO SAINTS
Ward-Prowse makes a run into space down the right flank, but the pass to free him from midfield takes longer than expected, and Spurs get bodies back to defend.
He tries to cross it, but Davies gets there to make the block. The corner then comes to nothing for Southampton as Tottenham clear.
Another save from Bazunu!
Ben Davies is told to shoot from range by the crowd and he obliges, striking it towards the bottom-right corner from 25-yards out. Bazunu does well to tip it away, before Salisu hacks it away for a Spurs corner.
GOALLLLL! TOTTENHAM LEAD!
Shortly after the corner is delivered, the ball comes back to Son down the left flank. He opts to cross the ball towards the near post, and Eric Dier nods the ball past Bazunu with a diving header! Spurs have come back from behind to lead here!
Hojbjerg clips in a teasing over the top through ball from midfield for Son in the left channel. Although at a bit of an angle, the Korean gets a shot away towards the near post, but Bazunu just about tips it behind.
BACK IN THE ASSISTS
SPURS ARE LEVEL
Here is Sessegnon celebrating equalising for his side. Game on now!

A couple of minutes after scoring, Ryan Sessegnon catches Kyle Walker-Peters right on the shin with a lunging challenge and gets cautioned. That was a bad challenge.
Walker-Peters is now receiving treatment.
GOALLLLL! SPURS ARE LEVEL!
What a response! Ryan Sessegnon heads in at the back post beyond Gavin Bazunu!
A delightful whipped cross from deep on the right by Dejan Kulusevski is met well by the wing-back, and it's into the back of the net. All square!
TOTTENHAM HAVE RESPONDED WELL
Spurs have responded well to going behind, and are attacking in numbers now. It's now just a matter of time before they score.
Under pressure on the edge of the box, Armstrong pulls a shot wide of the left-hand post after scuffing it. That puts an end to that Southampton counter.
CORNER TO SPURS
Sessegnon makes a run forward down the left, before sending in a cross for Kane at the back post. There is just a little too much on it, and Salisu heads it behind for a corner.
That set-piece is then cleared by Saints.
APPEALS FOR A PENALTY
Emerson is impeded in the box by Djenepo, but Andre Marriner does not look interested. Replays show that there was limited contact, and the Brazilian threw himself to the ground. Lucky not to get booked for diving there.
GOALLLLLL! SOUTHAMPTON LEAD!
The Saints have the lead, and it's James Ward-Prowse!
After a foray forward, Moussa Djenepo gets in an acute cut-back from the left-side touchline near the goal, which goes back into the box.
Ward-Prowse opts to hit it first time, and he gets enough on it to see it fly past Lloris after an awkward bounce!
