Tottenham finally put an end to their woeful run of form yesterday with a 2-1 win over Brighton in the Premier League.
Spurs had previously lost three successive games to Watford, Liverpool, and Inter Milan, leading two of these games close to the final whistle before dropping all three points.
Harry Kane ended his personal mini goal drought, which stretched back to the third game of the season against Manchester United.
The England captain smashed home his penalty with aplomb after Glenn Murray blocked Kieran Trippier’s fine free kick with his arm.
Erik Lamela then came on from the bench to beautifully sweep home a Danny Rose cross into the bottom corner.
Tottenham weather a late Brighton storm, with Knockaert pulling one back two minutes into injury time, but the Lilywhites were able to secure all three points.
Man of the Match Danny Rose later dismissed all talk of fatigue as a ‘myth’, as Tottenham look to drive forward this season.
Rose told BT Sport: “The manager is a big believer that it’s all in your mind.
“He looks at how much we’ve done and how much we’ve run and he prepares us right for each game.
“I think the excuses going around about fatigue are a bit of a myth and we don’t pay any attention to that.”
