EPL Roundup: Spurs held by 10-man Saints, Crystal Palace embarrass Norwich City, West Ham hammer Watford

Tottenham missed a chance to close the gap on fourth-placed Arsenal as ten-man Southampton held on for a 1-1 draw at the St Mary's Stadium.

The other two matches in the 1800hrs (EAT) kickoff were full of goals and massive goals keeper saves, and here's Futaa's brief report.

Southampton 1-1 Spurs

The Saints took the lead through James Ward-stunning Prowse's strike, but the game was turned upside down in an instant when Mohammed Salisu was sent off for a second yellow card for clumsily bringing down Heung-min Son in the area.

Nonetheless, after Harry Kane leveled from the spot, the Saints clung on heroically for over 45 minutes as the points were shared on the south coast.

To be honest, Southampton were more than deserving of the point, and it's only fair that each side left with a point.

Crystal Palace 3-0 Norwich City

Crystal Palace climbed to ninth place in the Premier League with a routine win over Norwich City.

The Eagles had little difficulty overall at Selhurst Park, with all their goals coming in the first half. Man-of-the-match Odsonne Edouard's penalty strike, along with excellent strikes from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jeffrey Schlupp, essentially gave the hosts plenty of wiggle room against the troubled east Anglian visitors, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

Christian Benteke's late effort was ruled out by VAR, and at least Norwich were spared an additional pounding.

Watford 1-4 West Ham

West Ham returned to winning ways in just under 48 hours after losing to Southampton on Boxing Day, defeating Watford at Vicarage Road.

The hosts got the lead in the fifth minute when Emmanuel Dennis scored his eighth goal of the season after being played in by Joshua King.

However, two goals 110 seconds apart before half-time turned the match in West Ham's favor, with Tomas Soucek equalizing and Said Benrahma putting the visitors ahead.

Watford got a glimmer of hope shortly after the break when Jarrod Bowen's goal was disallowed for a build-up foul on Juraj Kucka.

Referee Darren England consulted the pitchside monitor again less than ten minutes later, and this time the decision went in West Ham's favor when Bachmann was adjudged to have fouled Bowen, with Mark Noble converting the resulting penalty.

The big win was capped off by Nikola Vlasic's injury-time goal following some selfless play by Bowen.

West Ham now move up to 5th position and are now four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal after 19 matches played, while Watford sit 17th, two points ahead of Burnley after playing two additional games.
