FT: Brighton 3-0 Tottenham

Tottenham's week has gone from bad to worse after the 7-2 capitulation against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were outplayed,as teenage striker Aaron Connolly netted a brace and strike partner Neal Maupay also bagged in a 3-0 win. 

The big concern for Tottenham will not be the result, rather the health and fitness of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris after he was forced off early in the first half with an horrific arm injury as he was given oxygen as he was stretchered off the pitch. 

In the end, 3-0 it was how the score remained as Spurs remain in sixth spot, while Brighton move up to 12th position.

Tottenham have now failed to win in their last away 10 games in the Premier League, stretching back to a 2-1 victory at Fulham on 20 January.

Mauricio Pochettino Post-Match Interview:

“Hugo is in hospital now. The club will communicate what has happened, but there is no good news. It had a massive emotional impact on the team, and we lost a goal as well. We tried to find a solution, a different way to play, but it was impossible. We are living a tough moment. We need to keep going and stick together. I feel sorry for the fans.

“It’s not easy – after five and a half years this is the first tough moment we are living. It’s new for all of us. I hope the pressure comes on me, not the players. We cannot underestimate this kind of situation, but in the times that are not so good there is always a possibility to make things stronger.”
