    |Another game against Spurs and a really close one at that. Eventually it was drawn and we have to meet again, this time at Tottenham Hotspur's smart new stadium.

    As in the Huddersfield game Angus Gunn was in goal, with a back four of Kevin Danso at right back, as both right backs were injured (I will ask again, when is he going to get a game in the centre of defence?), Stephens and the returning Bednarek in the middle and Bertrand at left back.

    The midfield was James Ward-Prowse and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, with Redmond and Armstrong in the two No10 positions.

    The front pairing was Danny Ings and Michael Obafemi.

    This just shows the importance Ralph Hasenhüttl attached to the game.

    The increasingly influential Stuart Armstrong had to go off injured before half-time. Hopefully the injury is not serious

    |An exciting match that Saints had enough chances to win, but we have to be content with Boufal's equaliser and a replay at Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium.
