Tottenham Hotspur vs Southampton: Premier League 2022-23, TOT 4-1 SOU – Spurs merited three points on the opening day of their 2022-23 campaign. The home side effectively killed off the game by going 3-1 in front on the hour mark and proved that they needed neither Son or Kane to score in order to put four past a Premier League rival. By contrast, Ward-Prowse’s opening goal aside, Southampton have nothing much to show for their endeavour, and another long, hard season could lie ahead if they cannot muster more attacking threat.
