Glenn Murray handled the ball late in the first half which allowed Kane to score from the spot. The home team came at us with all they had in the second half and Paulo Gazzaniga pulled off a great save before Danny Rose crossed in for Lamela to slot in our second.
Anthony Knockaert pulled one back in stoppage time to make it a nervous last minute or so but we held on for all three points.
There were a few heroes on the pitch today and here are the player ratings from the game.
Paulo Gazzaniga – 6.5/10
The youngster did pretty well and made one good save to deny Knockaert. He couldn’t do much regarding the goal he conceded.
Kieran Trippier – 6/10
Trippier didn’t have the greatest time as he struggled a bit and even got a yellow card for a needless foul.
Toby Alderweireld – 7.5/10
The Belgian had a great chance to score early on and did a great job at keeping things tight for Spurs.
Jan Vertonghen – 7/10
Vertonghen didn’t have a lot to do at the back but he helped us to an important win in the final few minutes of the game.
Danny Rose – 7/10
Rose got the assist for the second goal but didn’t have the greatest of games for us. The Englishman should have done better for the goal we conceded.
Eric Dier – 5.5/10
This was another poor performance from the Englishman as he kept on making the wrong passes and losing possession.
Mousa Dembele – 7/10
The Belgian had a decent outing as his passing was good and kept things ticking for Spurs in the middle of the park.
Son Heung-min – 6/10
This was a quiet outing for the South Korean and he should have done more to help Spurs get all three points.
Christian Eriksen – 6/10
Another player who seemed to be out of touch was Eriksen. He must do a lot more if he is to keep his place in the team.
Lucas Moura – 6.5/10
The Brazilian tried to do things but they weren’t coming off. He did have a role in the second goal and was later subbed by Dele Alli.
Harry Kane – 6.5/10
Kane scored the penalty but couldn’t get another shot away as Brighton did well at keeping him quiet.
Erik Lamela – 7.5/10
The Argentine changed things as he provided an attacking outlet. He did well for the goal and maybe should start more games.
Dele Alli – N/A
The Englishman didn’t have a lot of time to make a difference to the game.
