Tottenham beat Brighton 1-0 in a hard-fought game last night courtesy of a late strike by Christian Eriksen.

The three points were crucial for Spurs as it now puts them in a commanding position in the race for the two remaining places in the top four.

It was not just what happened on the pitch that made the headlines after the game, but also what happened off it, as Hollywood star Zac Efron was spotted watching the game from the stands.

The 31-year-old actor is currently in the UK promoting his movie, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile, in which he plays the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy.

Efron posed for pictures with Spurs pair Moussa Sissoko and Kyle Walker-Peters, and admitted that he is a fan of the game, and particularly enjoys watching Premier League matches.

Speaking to Football.London, Efron said, “I get to a few LA Galaxy games, but not enough. It’s fun and the sport is really starting to grow in the United States.

“I saw David Beckham play a few times and watched a game next to him, which was awesome. He is a great dude.

“When I am in the UK, I always try to get to a game. I saw Arsenal play Chelsea in 2012. The chants you have here are insane – like a long poem that every single person knows. It is a little different to baseball.”

The versatile actor later revealed through an Instagram post that it was Spurs midfielder Dele Alli that invited him to watch the game.
