90+3

FULL-TIME. Brighton celebrate that point rowdily as they move eight points clear of the relegation zone. Spurs were fairly poor, but even so. Thanks for your company this evening.

- 

Knockaert is holding his face - but Brighton fans are not happy about their quick counter being halted.

90'+2 

Eriksen takes a corner, Ryan claims, a swift kick up the pitch...and referee Kevin Friend has pulled the play back because Knockaert seems to be stricken on the ground.

- 

Three minutes to be added on here.

90' 

Yeah, remember what I was saying about people slipping all over the place? It's not good when you're a keeper racing out of your box, Hugo Lloris. Fortunately for him, he covers himself.

88' 

Brighton are still loose with their passing, though, and Lamela latches on to a ball here before driving his shot at Ryan.

86' 

That's an instinctive volley from Gross courtesy of a ball from Ulloa, and it's just high. Brighton are really hoping for this winner.

Ironic cheers from the home fans as Llorente comes on in place of Harry Kane.

83' 

Tempting looping cross there, and Lloris shoves Aurier out of the way to claim.

82' 

The volume is suddenly upped around the stadium, and Brighton are pushing.

Glenn Murray is heading off, replaced by Leo Ulloa.

73' 

Dunk is SO close to scoring an own goal there. He throws out a leg to divert Eriksen's shot and it veers round the post.

- 
Tottenham's Harry Kane against Brighton
62' 

Everyone is slipping all over the place at the moment. Maybe they should have been prodding the pitch at half-time.

60' 

Bruno comes galloping into the box and although he takes down Moura that's not going to be a penalty.

- 
58' 

Eriksen's free kicks tonight have been terrible. This one is straight into the wall, and Kayal is winded.

56' 

Eriksen is seeking out Moura now, but the angle is too acute for him.

52' 

Well, that was a busy start to the second half.

PENALTY TO BRIGHTON! Izquiero is brought down by Aurier.

GOAL! Really poor defending from Brighton. Son rolls the ball down the touchline, and Kane pokes the shot into the net. Ironically, he may not have got the final touch, but he's celebrating.

46' 

We're under way in the second half.

- 
45'+4 

And just before the half-time whistle blows, Kane sets up a shot from Son, and Ryan is down to his left to tip that round the post. No time for a corner, though.

45'+2 

And when the free kick is finally taken, Eriksen tees up Kane, who slips on his standing foot as he strikes a limp shot into the arms of Ryan.

- 

Break in play as Lucas Moura gets treatment for a smack in the face.

44' 

Sloppy ball from Knockaert, giving it away to Kane, who's brought down just outside the box, on the left side.

43' 

Eriksen has been very muted so far this half, and again his cross from the right is blocked by Dunk.

41' 

Moura is causing plenty of problems with his darting runs through the centre, but his final ball is somewhat lacking.

- 
35' 

Oh, lovely teasing ball in from Gross on the left, which narrowly misses the despairing boot of Izquierdo.

32' 

Great shot from Lucas Moura, unexpected from range and angle, but Ryan has to be alert to tip that over the bar.

31' 

Eriksen steps over the ball to tee up Kane, who turns and hits the ball, but that's flying high.

30' 

A half-volley from about 30 yards out is unlikely to work out for Dunk, but you have to admire his optimism.

27' 

Another chance for Brighton, created by Gross, setting up Stephens who tries a back heel but is thwarted by Vertonghen.

25' 

Knockaert does well to take down a long pass, which eventually gets as far as Bong, who has a shot from range, but the deflection off a defender's ankles helps Lloris out.

23' 

And Son is off on the run again down the left, but Ryan has no problems with that.

- 

Bong blocks Son's cross at the near post. Lots of Spurs pressure.

21' 

He's a bit neglectful of his defensive duties here, though, allowing Davies to get past him this time.

20' 

Knockaert is showing few ill effects from that early blow to the face, and cuts in from the left, but his shot is deflected and Lloris holds.

18' 

Ooh. A proper chance, and it's for Brighton. Gross takes a corner, Dunk gets on the end of it and Lloris is not exactly confident as he gathers, grabbing it properly at the second effort.

15' 

Lucas is seeking Harry Kane in the centre, but his crossing is off-target so far.

14' 

Wanyama slides in on Glenn Murray, and that's a free kick to Brighton in their own half.

12' 

The free kick slams into the wall, and Brighton breaks, but Alderweireld puts a stop to that.

11' 

Dunk brings down Lucas Moura, who's charging in on goal, just in the D. Free kick.

10' 

Davies has charged up the left, and seems to have taken everyone by surprise.

8' 

Spurs are just passing the ball around nicely and Brighton are standing off them.

7' 

Son is very lively in these early exchanges, with Bruno having to do a lot of work.

5' 

Bruno ushers the ball out under pressure by Son, and the referee gives a corner rather than a goal kick.

4' 

He's OK to continue.

- 

Bit of a delay as Knockaert receives some treatment.

- 

Oh, he's taken a fist to the face from Wanyama - accidentally, it seems, but that'll smart.

2' 

Knockaert has fallen to the ground very dramatically, and he's holding his face.

1' 

Gross kicks us off.

- 

Brighton are having a huddle.

19:40 

The teams are ready to head on to the pitch.

- 

"We have a support that wants to see us having a go tonight," says Chris Hughton.

- 

"I think it's important to have fresh legs for today," says Mauricio Pochettino in reference to the changes he's made to his team.

19:25 

Lloris is making his 250th appearance for Tottenham tonight.
