Southampton fullback Nathaniel Clyne concedes defeat to Tottenham has plunged them back into the relegation mire.

Saints, who visit fellow strugglers Sunderland next Sunday, will come under severe pressure if 18th-placed Wigan beat Swansea at the DW Stadium tonight.

Clyne said: “It just shows that the season’s not over. We’re not playing like it’s over, we still want to get the points, we still have a target to reach. We’ve got to win our next two games and we have every chance. If we keep playing like we did here today we will have a chance.

“We’ve got belief and we’ve got confidence in all the players that we can do well. We are a good side and we’ve beaten bigger teams than we’re playing against next."
