Antonio Conte suffered his first home defeat after a five-goal thriller against Southampton

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte lost the chance to extend his unbeaten home record after a 2-3 defeat to Southampton on Wednesday night.

Two late headers saw the visitors leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with all three points following a pulsating encounter.

Mohamed with the second equaliser for Southampton

Spurs led twice via a Jan Bednarek own goal and a Heung-Min Son goal, but twice the Saints equalised before taking all three points eight minutes from time.

Armando Broja canceled out Bednarek’s own goal as both sides went into the break level at 1-1 in a match the visitors dominated.

However, two headed goals in the space of two second-half minutes from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams completely turned the game around in favour of Southampton.
