Tottenham Hotspur locked horns with Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to pick up maximum points from this away clash in the Premier League. Spurs made a bright start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 37th minute courtesy of Cristian Romero’s fortunate goal. The North London outfit went into the half-time break 1-0 to the good.

Harry Kane made the points secure for Spurs when he found the back of the net in the 57th minute. Antonio Conte’s men hung on to their healthy advantage and earned a solid 2-0 win on the road.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player performed during the clash against the Seagulls.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 6.5/10

The French keeper did not have a save to make in the game and secured an easy clean sheet away from home.

CB: Cristian Romero – 7.5/10

He defended his penalty area well and was lucky to get his name on the scoresheet in the 37th minute.

CB: Eric Dier – 7/10

The English talent did what was required of him at the back and secured a well-deserved shutout tonight.

CB: Ben Davies – 7.5/10

Davies gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and was a strong presence in the air.

RM: Matt Doherty – 6/10

Doherty struggled to get into the flow of the game and could last only 79 minutes before he was taken off.

CM: Rodrigo Bentancur – 8/10

He picked up a great assist for setting up Kane’s goal and anchored the midfield with a lot of conviction.

CM: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg – 7.5/10

The talented midfielder offered decent cover for his teammates at the back and made two good opportunities in the final third.

LM: Reguilon – 7.5/10

The Spaniard did his fair share of defending and was quite lively in the Brighton half.

RAM: Dejan Kulusevski – 7/10

He caused a few problems for the opposition and picked up an assist for Romero’s goal.

LAM: Heung-min Son – 6.5/10

The South Korea international created some decent openings for others around him but hardly got a sniff at goal.

ST: Harry Kane – 8/10

Kane was a constant menace in the attacking third of the pitch and deserves credit for scoring Spurs’ second goal near the hour mark.

Substitutes:

RM: Emerson Royal – 6/10

His impact on the game was minimal.

RAM: Lucas Moura – 6/10

The Brazilian talent offered very little in the final third.

LAM: Steven Bergwijn – N/A

He hardly got a sniff at goal.
