Confident for weeks, Tottenham were surprised at Brighton at their own stadium (0-1) this Saturday. Dominating the game, Spurs were penalized by a goal from Leandro Trossard in the final minutes of the game. With this setback, the Londoners could see Arsenal slip back into fourth place, in the event of the Gunners’ breakthrough (4pm) against Southampton.
Tottenham had to pay a heavy price for this surprise defeat against Brighton (0-1). Thanks to their four consecutive wins in the Premier League, Spurs managed to hold on to the top 4 of the championship, which is synonymous with qualification for the next Champions League. So it is with confidence that the people of Antonio Conte received seagulls in their stadium.
Favorites on paper, Harry Kane’s teammates dominated the game but failed to create dangerous opportunities. An inefficiency that could cost him dearly by the end of the season. In the 90th minute, Leandro Trossard manages to deceive Hugo Lloris thus leaving his team with three points. A frightening scenario for Tottenham who are likely to share their fourth place at the end of this day of the championship.
