Final Thoughts

Brighton win their first home game of the season to extend the gap between them and the bottom three. The Seagulls have three clean sheets in three. After an early goal from Leandro Trossard, the visitors couldn't find a way back.


Brighton need to build on their winning performance tonight to continue a push towards staying in the Premier League next season.


Tottenham suffer back-to-back loses for the second time this season after losing to Liverpool on Thursday and tonight. 


Tottenham have been without marksman Harry Kane now for 120 minutes of Premier League action and it is very obvious. Carlos Vinicius played 45 minutes of football but didn't have an impact, Gareth Bale failed to achieve anything in 60 minutes and Son has been invisible for the 120 minutes he has played without his striker partner.


What is next for Tottenham? Where do they go from here.
