Tottenham 0-1 Brighton: Player ratings

Tottenham were unable to get a single shot on target when they lost 1-0 to Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Brighton came out of the gates well and pressed Spurs high, preventing the hosts from doing anything in the early stages. They started to get some control after the 15-minute mark, with some good runs and corners that came to nothing.

The first real opportunity fell in the way of Brighton. Enock Mwepu, who put Arsenal to the sword last week, was volleyed from the edge of the box well blocked by Ben Davies, before Joel Veltman saw his own effort returned by Harry Kane from the next corner.

Brighton will have been by far the happiest team at half-time. They didn’t really come close to scoring, but they kept the Spurs from having a single shot on goal in the first 45.

Son was the Spurs’ danger man after the break. Whenever they collected energy, the ball usually ended up in the hands of the full-back, who saw two well-blocked attempts after the break. However, when the clock reached 70 minutes, the Spurs were still without a shot on goal.
