Tottenham Hotspur left it late to grab all three points against Brighton last night, as Christian Eriksen scored an 88th minute winner at the new Spurs stadium.
Spurs had been knocking on the door for the full 90, but Brighton defended stubbornly, as was to be expected when considering their League position.
After Dele Alli missed a couple of good chances, as well as one from Jan Vertonghen, and a Toby Alderweireld effort that hit the post and dribbled across the line, it didn’t look as though it would be Tottenham’s day.
However, the late Eriksen screamer means that the Lilywhites go three above Chelsea, four above Arsenal, and six above United in the Premier League table.
Spurs have yet to drop a point at the new stadium either, with four wins from four, extending an incredible record dating back to 2016.
Due to an unbeaten last season at White Hart Lane, and a stint away at Wembley, Spurs have now yet to lose in N17 in 1,060 days, and have not conceded a single goal in 709 days.
