Claude Puel bemoans Andre Marriner penalty decision

Southampton manager Claude Puel claims that his side should have been awarded a penalty during their 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

Southampton manager Claude Puel has claimed that his side should have had a penalty at the end of the first half of their Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.

Spurs themselves were awarded a spot kick when Steven Davis brought down Dele Alli inside the area shortly after the half-hour mark, but referee Andre Marriner was unmoved when Dusan Tadic was caught by Ben Davies on the stroke of half time.

Replays suggested that Southampton had a case, and Puel believes that his side deserved more than the 2-1 defeat that was inflicted upon them.

"If the referee gives a penalty for their second goal then he needed to give a penalty for us," he told reporters.

"I cannot see the difference. Two teams were at the same level. It was difficult for the two teams to find opportunities. Each team tried to play good football, without a lot of opportunities, but I think we stayed with a good spirit. A draw seems normal for me."

The defeat leaves Southampton still 10th in the Premier League table.
