- Murray concedes PK
- Kane converts it
- Lamela put it away
- Spurs skid ends
Goalkeeper Paulo Gazzinaga made his first start since last season’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, and came within a Anthony Knockaert stoppage time goal of another clean sheet.
Spurs move fifth with 10 points, ending their three-match losing streak in all competitions. Brighton is 13th with six points.

Clad in their green kits, Spurs nearly went ahead in the first few moments but Toby Alderweireld‘s inspired ball bounded through the box.
That sent Kane to the spot, and the big Englishman did not miss his chance.
A sleepy, sloppy match opened up a bit with Christian Eriksen‘s promising curler that missed far post in the 54th minute.
Lamela made it 2-0 with a pinpoint low shot in the final 15 minutes, and Brighton’s hopes for a draw were dashed on a rainy day at the Amex.

Knockaert made it 2-1 in the third minute of stoppage, and then was saved by Gazzaniga a minute later.
