The 39-year-old was initially placed in temporary charge for the second time this season following the dismissal of Nathan Jones, just three months after Ralph Hasenhuttl was relieved of his duties shortly before the World Cup break.

The Nigerian international netted his second goal in the Premier League as he put Saints in front against Everton on Saturday at St Mary’s, only for Conor Coady to equalise just three minutes later before Dwight McNeil completed the turnaround as the Toffees headed back to Merseyside with all three points.

Spurs surprisingly fell behind inside 12 minutes of their home opener in the north London sunshine, with Saints captain James Ward-Prowse defying an intense start from the hosts to volley home Moussa Djenepo’s cross from 18 yards.

Spurs finished fourth in the table last season and are therefore preparing for a return to the Champions League, while Southampton were 15th, just five points clear of the relegation zone.
