Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi have been called into England's squad for this month's European Championship qualifiers after four players withdrew due to injury.
SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Losing to Burnley was concerning, and being defeated by Chelsea was troubling. This loss, to Southampton, means Tottenham can officially panic.
The past few weeks have seen two Tottenhams. One version flexes aside Borussia Dortmund, barely breaking a sweat in the process. The other capitulates to teams either scrambling to preserve their place in the Premier League or in mid-table disarray. Much like the U.K. as a whole, Tottenham seem to be much better off in Europe.
Goals from Yan Valery and James Ward-Prowse conjured a spectacular comeback win for Southampton who stunned Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at St Mary's on Saturday after being completely outclassed in the first half.
Both players had scored in the 3-2 defeat at Manchester United last weekend and struck again within five second-half minutes which turned the game and condemned Spurs to a fourth successive Premier League game without a win -- their worst run since 2017.
