Tottenham get back to winning ways in the Premier League, ending a run of three-straight defeats in all competitions. Harry Kane ended his goal drought of three matches, scoring from the penalty spot in the first half. Brighton spurned chances to get back into the game in the second period, with Anthony Knockaert firing a tame effort at Paulo Gazzaniga. Erik Lamela came off the bench to secure the three points, which were earned despite a late strike from Knockaert. The result moves Tottenham above Manchester United into fifth place, while Brighton sit in 13th after six matches.
