Brighton beat Spurs to go seven points clear of bottom three

Leandro Trossard of Brighton & Hove Albion is challenged by Tanguy Ndombele of Tottenham Hotspur during the Premier League match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur at American Express Community Stadium on January 31, 2021 in Brighton, England.

Brighton punished a lacklustre Tottenham to grab their first home league win since June and go seven points clear of the drop.

Leandro Trossard grabbed the game's only goal, side-footing in Pascal Gross' cutback after 17 minutes.

And the hosts always looked likelier to score the match's second, with substitute Aaron Connolly having his late effort cleared off the line by Spurs' Toby Alderweireld.

Jose Mourinho's side struggled to create chances late on, with defeat meaning they stay sixth, six points off the top four.
