mason makes his debut with victory

Tottenham Hotspur has won its first match under new manager Ryan Mason. After falling behind at half time, the Londoners came back strongly against Southampton in the second company: 2-1.

Because of the victory, one can still dream of a Champions League ticket for next season.

Mason was appointed to replace José Mourinho on Tuesday until the end of the season, who got his congé a day earlier due to the poor results. The Spurs, one of the twelve teams that had joined the controversial Super League, was in a paltry seventh place after two points from the last three games.

At 29 years and 312 days, Mason, who had to end his football career early due to a head injury, became the youngest manager in the Premier League ever. This season, 118 players over the age of 30 have already competed at the highest level in England, an age that the former player of the London club will not reach until June 13.

Dangerous

Mason saw his team survive a dire moment after just two minutes. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was the lifesaver: first the Frenchman reacted cleverly to a header from close by from Mohammed Salisu and then he got in the way of the rebound of Che Adams, who had almost started cheering.

After half an hour, however, Lloris had to pass when Danny Ings headed out a corner kick from James Ward-Prowse and hit the ball at the far post: 0-1. The home team, with Steven Bergwijn on the bench, made little difference in the first half.

After the break, Tottenham made itself more assertive and pushed back the number fourteen in the rankings. And with success. A shot by Lucas Moura could still be blocked, but in the second chance Gareth Bale curled the ball in with precision: 1-1.

Fifteen minutes before the end, Son Heung-Min thought his team would take the lead after a nice Spurs attack, but the goal found no favor in the eyes of the referee because Lucas was in the offside position of the slider and he was goalkeeper Alex McCarthy obscured the view.

With Bergwijn for Bale, who was allowed to rest against Manchester City in view of the League Cup final on Sunday, Tottenham started a final offensive. Shortly before time, this led to a penalty kick after a foul by Moussa Djenepo, although referee David Coote first put the ball outside the box. Son passed the sentence.
