Kane strikes, but Spurs held by Brighton

Brighton manager Chris Hughton believes the 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Tuesday is another important step closer towards Premier League survival.

And yes, Kane did get a touch this time, with his goal putting him four behind Mo Salah in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

Serge Aurier brought down Jose Izquierdo inside the area and Pascal Gross made no mistake from 12-yards to give Brighton a share of the spoils.

Tottenham are eight points clear of Chelsea, who travel to face Burnley tomorrow (7.45pm).

Asked about his chances of retaining the award, the Englishman said: "There's still games to go and we'll see what happens".

"I was thinking today and trying to win", said Pochettino.

- Tottenham are unbeaten in 13 away games in all competitions - only once have they ever had a longer run (15 between April 1949 and January 1950).


'Everyone is ready to play but Brighton was a very hard opponent and we need to give credit to them'.

England midfielder Dele Alli and centre-back Davinson Sanchez were omitted from Pochettino's squad while Kieran Trippier, Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier and Erik Lamela dropped to the bench.

"We're well worthy of the draw that we got".

City were rewarded after spending big following a trophyless first season under the Spaniard, including signing full-back Kyle Walker from Tottenham in a deal reportedly worth up to £50 million. Certainly their jubilant fans thought so as they chanted, "We are staying up".

With Lucas and Son Heung-Min in the starting line up, the Spurs side is now looking pacier than ever, allowing Eriksen to play down the central channels as the creative link between the midfield and the attacking trio.

Brighton's star-man this season, Pascal Gross, stepped up to fire home the resulting spot-kick.

Correction note: An earlier version of this story mentioned the Tottenham-Brighton match was in the FA Cup.
