It was going oh so well for Tottenham a few weeks back. They'd beaten Stoke 4-0 on the road and were being heralded as the best team in the league as they hunted down Leicester at the top of the table.

Fast forward three games and their superb campaign is in serious danger of ending with a whimper. 

They've thrown away leads in three successive games against West Brom, Chelsea and now Southampton after their 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane today.

Heung-Min Son had given the home side the lead in a game that could have sealed second place for Mauricio Pochettino's side with a win, but a Steven Davis brace meant it was the visitors who walked away with a win. 

Having seen their title hopes evaporate following the draw against Chelsea, there's now a serious chance they could miss out on second place to Arsenal, of all teams.

Should the Gunners beat Manchester City today, they'll pull level on points with Spurs with just one game remaining. 

The Lillywhites hold the advantage because of their superior goal difference, but Arsenal's 'easy' trip to relegated Aston Villa on the final day while Spurs take on a Newcastle side fighting for their lives, means the Arsenal faithful are feeling more and more confident about securing the return of St. Totteringham's Day.

They were certainly in good voice after the full-time whistle, and you can check out the best of the reaction below.

There was at least some good news for Tottenham today; Son's goal means that they have broken their record for most goals in a single league campaign.

Three points against Newcastle would also mean their best ever points haul. While Pochettino would undoubtedly be happy with that, the fact a win would mean securing the runners-up spot would mean so much more.
