Tottenham Hotspur missed the opportunity to pull level with Liverpool in third place in the premier league after being held to a 1-1 draw by mat Ryan’s Brighton & Hove Albion at the Falmer stadium last night.
A win for Mauricio Pochettino’s side would have sent them 10 points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea and put them in a strong position to secure a top-four finish. After a dismal first half, Harry Kane’s 26th league goal of the season in the 48th minute looked to have set up the north London side for a routine win.
Those hopes were extinguished within 90 seconds as pascal gross netted from the penalty spot after Jose Izquierdo was felled in the area. Shane Duffy was then inches away from conceding an own goal as his outstretched boot diverted Eriksen’s low effort agonizingly past the far post. Tottenham’s next fixture will be the fa cup semi-final against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.
