Tottenham Hotspur host Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League this evening.
Jose Mourinho’s side have been in free-scoring form in the league, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min combining to devastating effect. However, that momentum was somewhat halted by a bitterly disappointing performance in the Europa League during the week, which left Mourinho incensed.
Brighton, meanwhile, continue to play attractive football but have failed to get the points to reward their play. Graham Potter’s side are without a win in their last four league games and have taken just five points from six in total. Follow all the action below:
Brighton continue to dictate the tempo of the game, while Spurs remain standoffish and hesitant. Lallana tries to bring down a long ball from Veltman in the box but it’s just too long for the former Liverpool man.
There’ll be three minutes of added time.
Brighton continue to probe. March is picked out in space on the left, and his cross deflects behind for a corner. The set piece is taken short and then floated into the middle by Trossard. Burn towers above everyone, glancing a header into the path of Gross, but Lloris is out quickly to claim.
March’s delivery is good but Sissoko climbs highest, heading clear.
Doherty drags Lallana to the ground and Brighton will have the chance to put the ball into the box from a free kick.
Spurs get the ball into the final third for the first time in quite a while. Son and Kane have been spectators since the goal. Reguilon is into the book, too, for diving into a tackle on Gross.
Another nice move from Brighton as Gross beats Sissoko and slips Lamptey away down the right. His cut back finds Trossard, whose shot is blocked. The flag goes up for offside anyway.
Brighton are by far the better side at the moment. The issue is that they’re ineffective in the final third without Maupay.
Excellent work again from Lamptey, who slides a pass through to Lallana on the right. His ball to the far post is intended for Trossard, but Spurs hack clear. There’s been no clear chance of note for the visitors but Mourinho will be growing increasingly concerned.
Lamptey charges down the right hand side, stopped by a sliding tackle from Reguilon. The ball goes behind for a corner, which comes to nothing.
