2022 – Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 Southampton: Spurs confidence starts off

Ryan Sessegnon scored his first Premier League goal for Tottenham

Tottenham came back from behind to start the Premier League with a comfortable home win over Southampton.

Spurs trailed in the 12th minute from James Ward-Prowse’s shot, pushing the ball to the ground and watching the rebound beat Hugo Lloris, but Antonio Conte’s team responded quickly and harshly.

Ryan Sessegnon scored his first goal for the club in the Premier League with a welcome cross from Dejan Kulusevsky to equalize the hosts and were ahead after half an hour.

Eric Dier hasn’t scored in three years, but Son Heung-min smashed into the far corner.

Spurs carried that confidence in the second half, with Muhammed Salisu turning Emerson Royal’s cross into their own net before the impressive Kulusevski netted a fine fourth goal to lead the dominant performance.

Dreamers started in Conti

A full pre-season under Conte, six signings with permission to be “dreamers” from their Italian boss means Spurs fans are expecting great things from their side this season.

“Why don’t you win the Champions League and the Premier League?” Conte had joked before about his ambitions, although Ward-Prowse needed a strike after Moussa Djenebo played cleverly to revive his team on opening day.

With Richarlison suspended and other new recruits still working their way to full fitness, Spurs looked familiar, albeit with two unfamiliar names on the scoring sheet.

Sessegnon and Dier have been big benefactors of the Conte era, and both go to great lengths to put Spurs ahead – the most predictable sources for Son and Kolosevsky producing moments of quality for both defenders’ composition.

It was the first time in 973 days that Spurs played a home game in the Premier League at 3pm on Saturday since their 5-0 victory over Burnley in December 2019 and the first time in more than 20 years that Spurs started a season with this kick. – outside the time period.

There has rarely been much optimism in north London during these two decades, and it is likely that it has not been swayed by the confident and entertaining performance.

Sisson was also disallowed for offside immediately after the break and a low ball from rival royal back Salisu forced an own goal before Brazilian Kulusevski found the bottom corner two minutes later.

The focus at Southampton this summer has been on the youth after signing six players, only two of whom are over twenty, but Saints’ Mr. Excellent start.

That hope did not last long for Ralph Hessenhuttl’s side, who not only had the worst opening record of any current team in the Premier League, but finished last season with four consecutive defeats and did little to mitigate the hangover at Tottenham Hotspur.
