Antonio Conte's men, who recovered from the coronavirus in time to be at the stadium, were no match for the resistance of a Brighton side that held out for the full 90 minutes and scored in stoppage time through a great run by Leandro Trossard.

The Seagulls, Spurs allies just a week ago when they beat Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, became the obstacle this Saturday that has prevented Tottenham from putting six points behind Arteta's side, who, by winning their two remaining games, would take the lead.

Tottenham's good run is over

With no luck throughout the match, Tottenham found the final touch in the 90th minute, when Trossard took advantage of a dead ball in the box to cut out a defender and toe-poke past Hugo Lloris.

The goal, Brighton's second win in a row, left Tottenham in fourth place on 57 points, just three ahead of Arsenal, who also have two games in hand.

Brighton, who have been assured of salvation for several matchdays now, are in tenth place with 40 points.
