Christian Eriksen continued his fine form by scoring in his second straight league match in a tough fixture, but Sergio Aguero caused Tottenham nightmares all day and Spurs would eventually lose 4-1.

Spurs are once again outclassed heavily by one of the league's premium clubs, but to be fair, the two sides traded blows and made things interesting for the first hour or so. Unfortunately, they ran up against a buzzsaw in Aguero today, who decided to put on an absolute clinic. Once Federico Fazio was sent off and Aguero converted his second penalty in three tries, it was game over. However, Spurs showed they were ready to spar early when Eriksen netted just a minute or so after City opened the scoring. Eriksen was looking more threatening than Nacer Chadli today and is the preferred fantasy option of the two going forward.

Tottenham will await the return of midfielder Nacer Chadli after he was a notable absentee for Belgium in Monday night’s away draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Reports post-match confirmed that Chadli had picked up a hip problem – the full extent of which is unknown – with the player facing tests on his return to White Hart Lane. The potential loss of the Belgium international would prove a huge blow having started the season on fire with four goals and one assist in his six games – almost half of Spurs total. However the lofty heights of sixth place is partly due to a solid defensive foundation with Hugo Lloris forming the cornerstone of the unit - but he [groin], like Chadli, will face further examination. The potential loss of the pair would be devastating for Tottenham who will encounter the mighty Manchester City at the Etihad in game week eight.

Ben Davies hopes international outings for Wales will help him to secure a regular first team role at Tottenham.

After a fee of approximately £10million was paid, it was widely believed that Ben Davies had been brought in to become Tottenham's new first-choice left back, but the 21-year-old has found his opportunities limited so far. Danny Rose - who signed a new five-year deal just weeks after Davies arrived - has been preferred by Mauricio Pochettino and has been performing well in the league, so it may take more than a couple of international appearances to change his manager's mind.

Hugo Lloris was commanding once again as Spurs picked up an important win and clean sheet against Southampton.

A few years ago Spurs had three players who could be placed in the "world class" bracket, namely Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Rafael van Der Vaart, but Lloris is the only man close to that description in the current squad. The France captain is having a terrific season so far, with man-of-the-match performance at Arsenal and West Ham already, as well as producing a string of phenomenal saves in Tottenham's other fixtures. Having signed a new five-year contact in the summer, Lloris says he is focused on helping his club finish in the top four, but the hierarchy must fear what could happen if this is not achieved, with a number of Europe's top clubs queuing up to offer Champions League football to the 27-year-old.

Tottenham Hotspur grabbed three points for the first time since August by holding on to beat Southampton 1-0, courtesy of a goal by Christian Eriksen.

Spurs by no means won in convincing fashion. The match report will show that the two sides played rather evenly and the Saints, in fact, won the possession battle. However Eriksen was able to finish a chance when the opposition could not. He scored his second goal of the season in the 40th minute after being set up by a Nacer Chadli pass. Chadli would rattle a shot off the woodwork a few minutes later and continues to show consistent form this season. A rare clean sheet was the icing on the cake, though Sadio Mane did his part by scuffing a shot when he had an open look late in the match. Spurs will have their work cut out for them with a trip to the Etihad up next.

Nacer Chadli has four of Tottenham's eight goals (six games) to start the season.

Chadli's most important goal of his career to date was washed away when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain equalized for Arsenal in the North London Derby this past weekend. Nevertheless, Chadli has rightfully earned a spot in Mauricio Pochettino's starting XI. He's the leading scorer on a top 10 team who'll need continued production from him if the rest of his supporting cast keeps coming up dry. He's in form and looks to be progressing. Add him to your Yahoo Fantasy PL team while his price is still fairly reasonable.

Younes Kaboul was everywhere clearing balls, intercepting passes and providing a physical presence as Spurs managed a draw despite enjoying very little possession at the Emirates.

It was Nacer Chadli that got the goal from an Erik Lamela assist (from a terrible Mathieu Flamini error) and Hugo Lloris that provided the highlight reel save but it was Kaboul who kept showing up to blunt Arsenal attacks before they could cause any danger. The site of Kaboul heading a ball away or bodying Danny Welbeck off of a chance seemed to pop up on the screen at every critical juncture during the match.

Tottenham came from behind to knock Championship leaders Nottingham Forest out of the Capital One Cup.

Tottenham were rotten for 60 minutes as Nottingham Forest's team of youngsters outplayed their opponents before taking a deserved lead to shock White Hart Lane. The set-back forced Mauricio Pochettino in to three substitutions - bringing on Ryan Mason, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane - and all three had an impact. Firstly, young Mason stuck a fine goal from distance before Roberto Soldado scored with an instinctive finish, diverting Andros Towsend's shot in to the net to put Spurs ahead. In injury time, Lamela played a cute ball through to Kane who slotted home to complete a 3-1 victory. The result ends a run of four games without a win, but there is a far tougher test lying in wait at the Emirates on Saturday.

Tottenham picked a bad day to put on a poor display, dropping all the points at home to a weak West Bromwich Albion side who managed to grab a goal in the latter stages and beat Spurs 0-1.

Fantasy Premier League managers around the globe are pulling clumps of hair out after this result, as a home game to West Brom looked to be an environment in which the Spurs attack could display the best they have to offer. Instead, what they came up with was a side lacking the creativity or sense of urgency needed to get a goal on the board, especially from a normally reliable Eriksen. One big defensive mistake in leaving a man unmarked on a free kick is what caused them to come out completely empty-handed. Playing Arsenal next week, Mauricio Pochettino better pull a tactical rabbit out of his hat should he expect any kind of positive result.

Nacer Chadli's goal vs Sunderland gives the midfielder three goals in his last three matches and the goal-scoring lead among all players at Tottenham heading into a Week 5 matchup vs West Brom.

After missing out on the team's opening match at West Ham, Chadli has three goals in 227 minutes over the last three games. A pretty impressive accomplishment early on given the fact that he only had one goal in 1,452 total minutes all of last season. With 18 points this past week in Yahoo Fantasy's Premier League game, the midfielder now has 46 points on the season, five shy of the team's top player Eric Dier.

Tottenham dominated Sunderland but were unfortunate to concede a Harry Kane own goal late in the match and come out with only one point.

According to Michael Caley's Twitter account, Spurs had 1.7 expected goals to Sunderland's 0.3. Expected goals is an advanced metric which measures the number of goals a team is expected to score based on quality and quantity of shots and chances. Tottenham were great in midfield with Moussa Dembele helping them control the match. Spurs' two goals both came from midfield as Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen got on the score sheet. They are lacking finishing from the striker position and will have to wonder if maybe Roberto Soldado can help them once he returns from injury.

Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado is very doubtful for this weekend's match against Sunderland.

The forward is dealing with a back and neck injury and is almost certainly ruled out. Soldado hasn't started a game for Tottenham yet this season and has only made one appearance off the bench. During his absence, Emmanuel Adebayor has started all three Premier League matches and Harry Kane was come in off the bench late in games. We are not excited about Soldado's near term fantasy appeal.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is close to agreeing a new contract after 'positive' talks with the club, his agent has told Sky Sports.

Barcelona were linked with a move for the defender over the summer, but he was very positive about his future with Spurs in recent interviews and his agent is now suggesting that Vertonghen plans to follow Hugo Lloris by signing a new five-year contract. However, according to the agent the 27-year-old Belgium international could reassess his position if Tottenham fail to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Erik Lamela scored a wonderful goal as Argentina thrashed World Champions Germany 4-2 in an international friendly.

There are signs that this is going to be a much improved season for Lamela. A promising performance against QPR in Week 2 of the Premier League showed off some of the winger's talents, and this goal suggests he's feeling confident and sharp. 22-year-old Lamela found things tough going against Liverpool in Week 3 as Spurs were outplayed but he should remain on your fantasy radar for next weekend's match against Sunderland, and beyond.

Spurs and England full-back Kyle Walker has undergone "lower abdominal surgery" in an attempt to cure an ongoing pelvic problem.

The Tottenham defender last played competitively over five months ago and was said to be close to a return to first team action with new coach Mauricio Pochettino even confirming he would undergo a late fitness on the eve of this season’s opener at West Ham. However the club have now decided following further specialist assessment that Walker will have a surgical procedure to correct the issue with no timescale given on his return. With news that Eric Dier has withdrawn from the England Under-21 squad today due to injury Tottenham are now sweating on the fitness of their new signing with only Kyle Naughton available as a potential replacement.
