Although the absence of Harry Kane could be a worry for Spurs, Southampton are yet to keep a clean sheet away from home in their last 25 away games against Tottenham.
Striker Charlie Austin is close to resuming training after a shoulder injury and defender Jeremy Pied is also making good progress after a knee operation and could train next week. But it had to be said that for all their latent menace they did not have a moment when they advertised the equaliser. Kieran Trippier and Son Heung-Min have both been a success but neither gets in the first XI when everyone is fit. He's very smart. Outside the box, he plays like a midfielder.
The tension was growing as Southampton continued to threaten, with Vincent Janssen brought on with four minutes to go as Eriksen made way to give Spurs more of a focal point up top.
Straight from the Saints chance, Spurs went down the other end and doubled their lead from the penalty spot.
Spurs will instead be aiming for a Premier League-high finish of second place, while also ending their wait for silverware in the FA Cup after booking their spot in the semi-finals with their resounding win over Millwall last weekend. They generally do such a good job of limiting their opponents that Forster isn't worked often - that may be for the best.

Like Pochettino's Tottenham, Southampton are a club with a clear philosophy. The last time the Spurs suffered a loss at home was when Southampton visited the London side in May of past year. "It was a unusual game, a odd first half - we conceded two goals without coming under pressure".
Gabbiadini could become the third player in Premier League history to score in each of his first four appearances in the competition alongside Mick Quinn and Diego Costa. But not for the next eight or nine games if he is out for that long.
