It’s been a bad night for Tottenham Hotspur today.

Tottenham welcomed Southampton to North London in what should have been three more points in their bid to qualify for the Champions League next May.

However, the away team has completely different intentions tonight.

Southampton registered a 3-2 away win over Spurs on a night without many positives for the hosts.

There were quite poor individual defensive performances and to be honest, Antonio Conte’s men were lucky to only concede three goals.

But a positive thing has come in the performance of Rodrigo Bentancur.

The former Juventus midfielder joined Tottenham on transfer deadline day and even with the defeat here, Bentancur’s silk is likely to live long in the memory of some Spurs fans.

He came on for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg at the last minute and had an immediate impact on the home side’s midfield, with a number of outstanding diagonal passes.

Here’s how Jonathan Woodgate reacted to a moment of brilliance from the Uruguayan.

I said BBC Radio 5 Live: “The ball for Rodrigo Bentancur’s Lucas Moura is completely out of this world. This kid has had a veritable pedigree – he is a niche talent. “

Bentancur has certainly enhanced his reputation but really, it was a lousy performance for Tottenham in general.

If your new signing, on his Premier League debut, is your team’s best player despite being half an hour away, then honestly, that’s a problem.

The North London team still has 3 matches left before the 4th ranked team West Ham, who is only 4 points behind.

Champions League qualification is still in the hands of Spurs, but the evidence is that they need to improve a lot.
