Joe Aribo was on for all 90 minutes as Southampton lost to Antonio Conte and his men in their first game of the new Premier League season.

Ralph Hasenhüttl handed competitive debuts to Aribo alongside two other summer signings – Gavin Bazunu and Roméo Lavia.

Club captain, James Ward-Prowse silenced the Spurs crowd with a 12th-minute volley that deceived Hugo Lloris and it took the hosts just nine minutes to draw level through Ryan Sessegnon.

Eric Dier glanced in Son’s cross as Spurs turned the game on its head 13 minutes before the interval.

And in the space of two minutes in the second half Spurs put the result beyond doubt. First Emerson Royal’s low shot was heading wide before Salisu diverted the ball into his own net.

Then Royal cut the ball back for Kulusevski, who stroked a precise shot inside the far post from 12 yards.
