Adams completes Southampton comeback as Conte loses first home game with Spurs

Villa and Leeds share spoils after six-goal thriller; Zaha suffers highs and lows for Palace

Tottenham Hotspur 2 Southampton 3

Southampton scored twice in two minutes to deal Tottenham’s top-four chances a bitter blow as they won a breathless game 3-2 in a rain-soaked north London.

Spurs looked to be heading towards the points going into the final 10 minutes as a Jan Bednarek own goal and a Son Heung-min effort either side of Armando Broja's strike gave them a 2-1 lead.

But headed goals from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams in quick succession turned the game on its head and handed the win to the visitors, which on the balance of play was thoroughly deserved.

Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men, who felt Son’s goal should have been ruled out for a foul, had Spurs on the rack for the majority of the first half and they deserved the luck they had in seeing Steven Bergwijn’s stoppage-time leveller ruled out for offside.

They handed a first home defeat to Antonio Conte, whose side missed the chance to close the gap on the Champions League places to just a point.

Aston Villa 3 Leeds United 3

Diego Llorente earned Leeds a battling point in a breathless 3-3 draw at Aston Villa.

The defender struck in the second half as the visitors hit back from 3-1 down.

Philippe Coutinho pulled the strings in a whirlwind first half where he cancelled out Daniel James's opener before twice setting up Jacob Ramsey.

James made it 3-2 before the break and Llorente ensured a pulsating game at Villa Park ended even.

Ezri Konsa was also dismissed late on for a second yellow card for Villa but Leeds were unable to capitalise.

The draw edged Marcelo Bielsa’s side, now with just three wins in their last 12 games, six points clear of the relegation zone and denied Villa a place in the Premier League’s top 10.

Norwich City 1 Crystal Palace 1

Wilfried Zaha’s night went from the sublime to the ridiculous with a superb solo equaliser followed by an awful penalty miss as Crystal Palace came from behind to draw 1-1 at Norwich.

The Canaries needed a win to move out of the Premier League relegation zone but they had to settle for a point at Carrow Road.

Teemu Pukki’s first goal in over 11 and a half hours had the hosts ahead after just 39 seconds but Dean Smith’s side could not make it four wins from four.

Instead, they were pegged back on the hour by a fine Zaha effort, the Ivory Coast international curling home from the edge of the area on his first appearance since St Stephen’s Day.

He then had a fine chance to win it for the Eagles, who have now won just two of their last 12 league games, but he scuffed a tame penalty well wide after Tyrick Mitchell had been fouled by Max Aarons.
