Match Report: Brighton 1-1 Tottenham (Goals And Highlights)
Harry Kane’s 26th league goal of the season could not get Spurs back to winning ways as Brighton earned a deserved 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium.
Harry Kane put the away side on target following Gaetan Bong’s error, put Spurs in sight of an 11th away win.
Brighton were handed an opportunity to level within moments of the opener when Serge Aurier bundled Jose Izquierdo over in the box, and a hand from Hugo Lloris was not enough to keep out Pascal Gross’ powerful spot-kick.
Spurs almost won it through an own goal when Shane Duffy deflected Christian Eriksen’s cross a fraction wide.
The draw takes Brighton eight points above the bottom three, while the result gives Chelsea a small chink of light for a top-four spot, with Tottenham eight points clear of the Blues having played a game more.
