‘Seagulls Down Spurs’

Host Ricky Sacks was joined by Lee McQueen, John Wenham and Richard Cracknell on this Last Word On Spurs

Brighton boosted their survival chances after securing their first home success of the season with a 1-0 victory over a lacklustre Tottenham.

Graham Potter’s side were by far the better of the two sides in the first half, but they only had Leandro Trossard’s 17th-minute strike to show for their dominance.

Spurs, who handed Gareth Bale just his second Premier League start since his return to the club in place of the injured Harry Kane, struggled for any sort of rhythm and it took them until the 75th minute to fashion their first real chance as Robert Sanchez brilliantly saved substitute Carlos Vinicius’ strike.

Brighton spurned a golden opportunity late on through Aaron Connolly to make the game safe, but they weren’t punished as Spurs failed to find an equaliser on what was a disappointing night for Jose Mourinho and his side.

Victory sees Brighton move seven points clear of the relegation zone, while the result means Spurs, who have suffered back-to-back defeats in the league, stay sixth.
