Ghanaian winger Kamaldeen Sulemana inspired Southampton to a comeback draw against Tottenham Hotspur as the fight for survival continues for the Saints.

With Southampton down 2-1, manager Ruben Selles threw in the 21-year-old with 20 minutes remaining.

Four minutes after the introduction of Sulemana, Spurs extended their lead through Ivan Perisic.

But Sulemana started what will lead to Saints' second goal, after sending a defense splitting pass to Ward-Prowse, whose cross was met by Sekou Mara before Theo Walcott fired home to make it 3-2.

Sulemana was a menace on the left flank, forcing fouls from the Tottenham defenders and late into injury time the pressure from Southampton paid off with a penalty.

Ward-Prowse made no mistake from the spot as Southampton shared the spoils at home, but it was Sulemana who got all the praise.

Pedro Porro and Harry Kane had earlier scored for Spurs with Che Adams netting for Southampton.

Impact Player! Southampton earn a 3-3 draw against Spurs, and Kamaldeen Sulemana played his part for the Saints

For me no surprise in Kamaldeen Sulemana's performance today. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Six years ago when I saw him as a kid, I knew he was destined for greatness. He is capable of producing much more than he did today.

@_owurakuampofo added:

Southampton needed urgency in the final third for the last 20 minutes of the game and Kamaldeen Sulemana provided just that. Wasn’t afraid to take on players, completing 4/5 dribbles while creating 2 chances during his cameo. There’s a lot more to come from him.
