Gallery: The best images from Tottenham's 1-0 win over Southampton

Tottenham Hotspur beat Southampton 1-0 this afternoon, and here are a selection of images from the match.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino faced off against former employers Southampton today for the first time since leaving the South Coast this summer, and saw his side win 1-0 with a first half goal from Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Pochettino joined Southampton in January 2013, and whilst some fans and pundits were sceptical over his appointment having been sacked by Espanyol just months earlier, he ended up taking the Saints to eighth place in the Premier League table in his first full season in charge.

Those exploits led to a move to White Hart Lane to replace Tim Sherwood, and before today's game, Tottenham had won two, drawn two and lost two under his stewardship as they struggled to really generate momentum.

Yet today, they ended Southampton's four game winning streak in the Premier League as Christian Eriksen drove the ball home from the edge of the box on the stroke of half time, and whilst the Saints came close to an equaliser in the second half, they couldn't draw level, handing Spurs their third league win of the season.

With Spurs now up to sixth after a tough game, here are some of the best images from today's clash.
