Gareth Bale seals Tottenham 2-1 win over Brighton

The Welsh international came off the bench to clinch all three points as Spurs move up to second in the table.

Mourinho’s team were on top from the start in this one as Harry Kane and Sergio Reguilon forced early stops from Robert Sanchez.

And with Spurs coming in waves against the under pressure Seagulls defence, Kane edged them in front on 10 minutes.

The England skipper was fouled right on the edge of the box by Adam Lallana and after a long VAR check he confidently fired home from the spot.

Brighton looked to wrestle themselves back into it after the break as highly rated full back Tariq Lamptey netted his first ever Premier League goal.

Solly March stretched the Spurs defence in behind to pull back for Pascal Gross and he unselfishly fed in Lamptey to sidefoot past Hugo Lloris.

Mourinho threw on Bale in the closing stages to try and turn the tide and the Real Madrid loanee provided the vital impetus.

Toby Alderweireld’s pass sent Reguilon free in behind Lamptey and the Spaniard arrowed cross found Bale inside the box and the returning made no mistake to power past Sanchez.

Brighton secure late 1-1 Premier League draw at Crystal Palace

Wilf Zaha’s first half penalty looked to have decided a dull M23 derby, but Alexis MacAllister’s late strike nicked a valuable point for the Seagulls.

Neither side were to create much too in scrappy opening quarter with Brighton working hard to keep dangerman Zaha off the ball.

But despite managing to shackle him in open play, there was nothing the visitors could do to stop him scoring from the spot on 17 minutes.

Tariq Lamptey nudged over Michy Batshuayi inside the box and the Ivory Coast international calmly tucked past Mat Ryan.

That setback disrupted Brighton’s confidence with Neil Maupay wasting a pair of half chances either side of the break.

With Graham Potter’s side struggling to breakthrough Palace’s military style defence they needing a late slice of luck.

Palace defender Joel Ward gifted possession to Maupay inside the box and he squared for substitute MacAllister to force home.

Brighton’s late rally was almost undone by a red card for skipper Lewis Dunk but in the end Potter’s visitors just held out.

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes rescues 3-2 Premier League win at Brighton

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side rode their luck on the south coast, as Brighton hit the woodwork five times, but fortune was on their side as Fernandes sealed a dramatic three points.

The Seagulls bossed the first half right from kick off, as Leandro Trossard cracked an early effort off the post.

But the hosts coming in waves is was only a matter of time before Graham Potter’s side found a breakthrough, with Neil Maupay edging them in front on 40 minutes.

Fernandes bundled over man of the moment Tariq Lamptey inside the box, and the Frenchman dinked home from the spot.

Despite failing to make any inroads, United levelled things up just before the break, as Lewis Dunk diverted Harry Maguire’s flick into his own net.

That slice of luck tipped the game in United’s favour as Marcus Rashford fired them in front after the restart.

The England star was quiet in the first half, but he showed a burst of pace to get away from Ben White, before rocketing past Matt Ryan.

But Brighton were not about to roll over in the second half, as Solly March tested the post and David De Gea produced a fine stop from Maupay.

However, as the game ticked into added time, there was drama at both ends.

March thought he had secured a late point for Brighton with a brave header, but after a whopping ten minutes of added time, penalty king Fernandes fired home the winner.

Brighton seal 3-0 Premier League win at Newcastle

The Seagulls lost to Chelsea on the opening weekend but two early goals for Neil Maupay on Tyneside means that Graham Potter’s side are now up and running.

Brighton were quick out of the blocks at St.James, and Newcastle, who were so impressive at West Ham last weekend, were the architects of their own downfall.

Allan Saint-Maximin’s rash challenge on Tariq Lamptey resulted in penalty on three minutes, and Maupay stepped up to make no mistake from the spot.

And with Newcastle still getting their breath back from that one, Brighton hit them on the counter five minutes later.

The excellent Lamptey was again at the heart of it as he fed in Leandro Trossard, and with the Magpies defence unable to recover in time, Maupay arrived at the far post to fire home.

That rapid start seemed to stun the hosts, with Steve Bruce’s side clinging on until half time.

Newcastle did show signs of improvement after the break, but their day turned on a crucial chance for Callum Wilson on the hour mark.

Miguel Almiron did well to measure a cross deep into the box, but Wilson was unable to get enough purchase on his header and their key moment was wasted.

That goal woke Brighton out of their mid half funk, with Trossard and Aaron Connolly both firing against the post.

Brighton pushed in the closing stages, and as Newcastle all out of ideas in the final minutes, Connolly curled home a delightful third goal.

Potter’s afternoon did end on a sour note, after Yves Bissouma was sent off, but he’s unlikely to be too concerned as this was three big big points for Brighton.

Brighton’s Tariq Lamptey earns England Under-21 call-up

The 19-year-old, who joined Brighton from Chelsea in January, has previously represented England at under-18 and under-20 level.

He comes into the squad as a replacement for his former Chelsea team-mate Reece James, who has withdrawn along with attacking midfielder Ebere Eze, who completed a move from QPR to Crystal Palace last week for an initial fee of £16million.

That leaves Aidy Boothroyd with a group of 22 players for the Young Lions’ Euro 2021 qualifiers against Kosovo on Friday and Austria next Tuesday.
