Koeman proud as Southampton produce winning trip to Tottenham

Ronald Koeman was delighted with the way his Southampton team went about their business at Tottenham on Sunday.

The Saints came from a goal down to win 2-1 at White Hart Lane to give Koeman a win over every Premier League side since he arrived at St Mary's in the summer of 2014.

Steven Davis scored twice following Son Heung-min's opener in the 16th minute and the result was something that Koeman admitted he was extremely proud of as Southampton equalled their best Premier League points tally of 60.

"It is a big, big achievement, but it is nice," said the Dutchman.

"Tottenham was the better team at the start of the game, very aggressive, very good football, they made it very difficult.

"We had a good reaction in the game, some good crosses, we made it really dangerous. It is all about scoring chances but we showed belief in the second half.

"We controlled a little bit better in the midfield area and we were dangerous with the pace in front. After 2-1 we were a little bit lucky.

"It was a great win and we are very proud of it."

The south coast club now sit sixth on the table, three points behind Manchester United in fifth with one fixture remaining in the 2015/16 season.
