That's your lot.

But don't worry, we are back on Wednesday for more Premier League action as Bournemouth host Manchester United.

Until then.

'It's a step in the right direction'

FT: Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton manager Chris Hughton tells Sky Sports: "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.

"We showed great quality in the areas when we needed to.

"Against these big sides you have got to give everything and if you are below your best they can really hurt you.

"They have such quality, speed and appreciation of space that you have to be disciplined around that, and maybe in the first half we gave it away too easily.

"The supporters have been excellent all season. Our performances here have been good and we have needed them. With any support, if they see reaction from the players they will get behind them."

'Credit to Brighton'

FT: Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino tells Sky Sports: "It was a difficult game, the first half was even and the second half we started it really well. We scored and in the next section we conceded. In the second half we dominated, created chances but not enough to win the game. The draw is a little bit disappointing because the intention was to get all three.

"We were thinking of giving the team fresh legs because Saturday's game against Manchester City was tough mentally and physically. We have a squad good enough to win games. Today was not because we rotated the team. Everyone is ready to play but Brighton was a very difficult opponent and we need to give credit to them.

"Bruno touched the ball when he was inside the goal (so it was Harry Kane's goal)."

'I think Brighton have enough'

FT: Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Efan Ekoku

Former Nigeria international on BBC Radio 5 Live

I think Brighton have enough points to stay up.

They worked very hard and also showed lots of composure in the final third. That's the reason they have that many points and I think the current bottom three are already down.

'I trust my technique'

FT: Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross tells Sky Sports: "It is a very important point in a bad period of the last few games. We fight together and showed we have good character as a team. We made a good game against a good team.

"We know we need some more points and have games remaining. You always have a chance in football so we got a point today and we have to keep going.

"The goal we conceded was a stupid one and a bad mistake from us. We have good character and team spirit, it was important the reaction was fast.

"You always have pressure on a penalty but I trust in my quality. I know I can shoot a penalty well and I can trust on my technique."

'Well worthy of their point'

FT: Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Efan Ekoku

Former Nigeria international on BBC Radio 5 Live

Brighton weren't really in too much trouble defensively in that second half apart from the Erik Lamela chance.

They defended deep but with lots of concentration and were well worthy of the point they have gained.

FULL-TIME

Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

All over.

Brighton claim a well-earned point and go eight points clear of the drop zone.

Now Tottenham get a corner, as they look to nick a late winner, but Christian Eriksen's cross is collected cleanly by Mathew Ryan.

Oh my, almost the gift Brighton were looking for.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris comes hurtling off his line onto a long ball and slips, but manages to get back on his feet to clear the ball.

THREE minutes added on.

Jamie: Spurs are losing form at the wrong time in the season. Everyone looks jaded and a yard short.

Matty W: Typical Spurs. Season is over. Won't win here, will lose the FA cup semi final and everyone will be questioning their mentality again.

James: I’m having kittens here...Willing the Albion to hang on for a point or more!

Tottenham fail to clear the initial corner, but Solly March pops the ball off Toby Alderweireld at the other end and they get another corner kick.

This time Hugo Lloris is able to punch away Pascal Gross's delivery.

'Llorente could have been utilised more this season'

Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Efan Ekoku

Former Nigeria international on BBC Radio 5 Live

I think Fernando Llorente could have been utilised a bit more this season and it would have meant some of the other Spurs forwards would be a bit fresher going into the back end of the season.

SUBSTITUTION

That shot is Harry Kane's last action in the match, he comes off and Fernando Llorente enters the action.

For the third time in the match, Harry Kane slips as he strikes the ball and it sails wide.

Much to the amusement of the Brighton fans.

Christian Eriksen charges into the area, but then loses the ball and it rolls out of play.

That sums up Tottenham's performance in the final third tonight.

Another change for Brighton. Jose Izquierdo come off and on trots Solly March.

Jose Izquierdo, who is a dead ringer for West Indies spinner Sunil Narine, drifts in a dangerous inswinging cross from the left, but it is straight into the grateful hands of Hugo Lloris.

'Lick of paint wide'

That was good perseverance by Spurs and in the end it's Christian Eriksen who smashes it at goal and it's a lick of paint wide.

CLOSE!

Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Tottenham working hard to find an opening again and Christian Eriksen's low strike from the right-edge of the box takes a nick off Shane Duffy and inches wide of the post.

From the corner, Toby Alderweireld smashes a shot into the side netting.

Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

The tempo has dropped a little in the match.

You can understand why, both team have gone full throttle for 70 minutes so far.

Brighton winger Anthony Knockaert has given Tottenham's backline plenty to think about today, but this time his cross is too deep and leaves striker Glenn Murray frustrated in the box.

Victor Wanyama gallops forward like a runaway train, but then cannot make his mind up as he approaches the area and neither shoots, nor passes and the ball rolls through to Mathew Ryan.

Into the final half an hour.

Who can stand up and make themselves a hero?

PENALTY APPEAL

'What a difference a goal makes'

Harry Kane looks a different player after scoring that goal.

He looks hungry and is looking for the ball as if he has only played five games this season

The free-kick goes into the wall again from Christian Eriksen.

Ben Davies' smashes the follow-up into the mid-riff of Beram Kayal. That is a painful one, like being punched in the guts by the Big Show.

Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

Brighton have given away free-kicks in dangerous positions today and they do so again.

Midfielder Beram Kayal slides in on Harry Kane, but it touches the Israeli's hand and Kevin Friend awards a free-kick, 25 yards out.

Khan: That Spurs goal came off a defender. Surely not Kane's goal?

Neill: Spurs so often score early in the second half. Why can't they start the first half with that dynamic tempo instead of being so lethargic

Tarquind: I know how to spell liability now... ‘A U R I E R’... How many times?

CLOSE!

Brighton 1-1 Tottenham

He should do better here.

Little Lucas Moura cuts in from the left and is in acres of space in the box, but drills his effort wide of goal.

That goal has given Brighton confidence and goalscorer Pascal Gross clips a cross to the back post for Jose Izquierdo, but the Colombian cannot control the ball and it rolls out of play.
