Tottenham fans drool over excellent Brighton player after narrow win

Tottenham Hotspur earned an excellent 1-0 win over Brighton on Tuesday afternoon despite Chris Hughton’s side desperately playing for a point – and Spurs fans have drooled over Brighton skipper Lewis Dunk.

Christian Eriksen’s 88th-minute drive finally broke the deadlock, beating Mat Ryan from all of 25 yards with a sweetly-struck effort that flew into the bottom corner of the Australia international’s goal.

Prior to the goal, though, the likes of 27-year-old powerhouse Dunk, Shane Duffy and more had been tasked with frustrating Mauricio Pochettino’s side – and they had carried out such instructions superbly.

What Has Gone RIGHT At West Ham United?

Spurs were limited to shots from distance. It saw Victor Wanyama look to find the back of the net three times, while striker Fernando Llorente did not even have one chance to shoot on goal.

It was always going to take a moment of brilliance, but credit is due to Dunk who one an exceptional number of headers, and put in an enormous amount of blocks –  including one on Lucas Moura when he looked likely to score.

Tottenham fans were so impressed with the Brighton skipper that they took to Twitter after the match to applaud Dunk, who has only earned one England cap so far. One fan even requested consider a summer move.
