Tottenham pick up deserved victory over Brighton | Match Report.


By Phil Dawkes | BBC Sport



Tottenham moved back into the Premier League top four as goals from Serge Aurier and the in-form Son Heung-min helped them to victory over a stubborn Brighton at Wembley.

Spurs dominated both territory and possession from the start but had been frustrated by the visitors until Aurier's cross from the right touchline fortuitously looped over Mat Ryan and into the far top corner of the net to give the Ivory Coast full-back his first goal for the club.

It was a harsh way to concede for Albion, who had put in a well-organised defensive display in pursuit of a first win in six matches and a first away goal against a side above them in the table.

They failed to find either during the second half and their challenge was ended when Son scored for the fourth game running via a stooping header from Christian Eriksen's free-kick.

Erik Lamela - making his first start in over a year following serious hip injury - struck the post with a shot, as did Harry Kane from a free-kick as Spurs claimed a second successive win to move above Liverpool, Burnley and Arsenal.

Brighton remain 13th in the table, but the gap between them and the bottom three has been cut to three points.
