Tottenham Hotspur welcomed Brighton and Hove Albion at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they looked to secure a positive result at home. Spurs made a lackluster start to the game and were held to a scoreless draw at half-time.

Antonio Conte’s men continued to struggle in front of the opposition goal during the second half and conceded the opening goal in the 90th minute when Leandro Trossard scored for the Seagulls. The match ended with Spurs suffering a narrow 1-0 loss at North London.

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

GK: Hugo Lloris – 6.5/10

The French keeper made a few solid saves but will be disappointed after conceding a late goal.

CB: Cristian Romero – 6/10

He got stuck in with some solid tackles and made one good run with the ball going forward.

CB: Eric Dier – 6/10

Dier made a couple of important defensive contributions but won’t be pleased after allowing a late goal.

CB: Ben Davies – 6.5/10

He cleared the danger when needed and made one good run with the ball from the back.

RM: Emerson Royal – 6.5/10

Emerson worked hard on the defensive end of the field and made one key chance in the final third.

CM: Rodrigo Bentancur – 7.5/10

He anchored the midfield with conviction and made two good runs from midfield.

CM: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg – 7/10

Hojbjerg tried to provide decent protection for his teammates at the back and also made a few energetic runs with the ball.

LM: Reguilon – 6/10

The Spaniard struggled to influence the game and had a dull day at the office.

RW: Dejan Kulusevski – 6/10

He failed to make an impact in the final third.

ST: Harry Kane – 6/10

Kane made two inviting chances up top and didn’t get too many sniffs at goal.

LW: Heung-min Son – 6/10

Son had a few bright moments in the final third but didn’t do enough to register a goal.

Substitutes:

CAM: Lucas Moura – 6/10

He offered very little in the final third.

CM: Harry Winks – 6/10

Winks added some energy to Tottenham’s midfield.

RW: Steven Bergwijn – N/A

He didn’t get enough time to make an impact.
