Tottenham held 1-1 by Brighton at English Premier League

Celta Vigo's Uruguayan forward Maxi Gomez vies with Atletico Madrid's Uruguayan defender Diego Godin during the Spanish league football match RC Celta de Vigo vs Club Atletico

Tottenham could have gone 10 points clear of Chelsea with a win at the Amex Stadium last night.

The first half ended goalless but at the start of the second half Kane scored the first goal for Tottenham Hotspur two minutes after the restart, firing in Heung Min Son pass from close range for his 26th league goal of the season.

Minutes later Pascal Gross levelled the scores from the penalty spot.

The result ensured the Seagulls are eight points clear of the relegation zone, and the Cameroon global has asked his side to "keep fighting" as they aim to maintain their Premier League status.

Asked about his chances of retaining the award, the Englishman said: "There's still games to go and we'll see what happens".

"We tried to add to the team fresh legs to match them in the physical condition and I think the season is tough for some players that play a lot".

- Tottenham are unbeaten in 13 away games in all competitions - only once have they ever had a longer run (15 between April 1949 and January 1950).

"We're well worthy of the draw that we got".

'It's a step in the right direction, and what I was most delighted with was the character of the team to concede the way we did and then react the way we did, ' said the Seagulls manager.

Davinson Sanchez and Dele Alli were both omitted from Pochettino's squad on the south coast, while Kieran Trippier, Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier and Erik Lamela dropped to the bench.

"From when I first signed there to now, Tottenham are a complete different club". Our performances here have been good and we have needed them.

Brighton's star-man this season, Pascal Gross, stepped up to fire home the resulting spot-kick.

The Brazilian wide man has made eight appearances for Tottenham so far, three of which have come in the FA Cup, scoring one goal along the way.
