Tottenham player ratings vs Brighton: 'Terrific' 8/10 and 'brilliant' 9/10 in stoppage time win

Tottenham came from behind to beat Brighton 2-1 in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Substitute Brennan Johnson scored in stoppage time to earn Tottenham a 2-1 win over Brighton in the Premier League. Pape Matar Sarr had cancelled out a Pascal Groß strike before Johnson bagged the all-important winner.

Micky van de Ven, brilliant all-game, clipped the clever Danny Welbeck who went down straight away and the referee pointed to the spot. VAR had a little check, but ultimately went with referee Sam Barrott's call.

Pascal Groß stepped up and planted it home to hand the home side a 1-0 lead but, as has been the case in the last seven home games, Tottenham found a way of scoring, and this time Pape Matar Sarr got the equaliser on what was his first start since returning from the AFCON.

Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou would have been smelling blood and made three substitutions to try to win the game, bringing on captain Son Heung-min, Yves Bissouma and Brennan Johnson. The stadium, initially as silent as a library, came alive, especially with every Son touch.

Every team needs its skipper and Spurs for the first time this year had theirs back following South Korea's exit from the Asian Cup. Brighton looked like they would be blown away but slowly found their feet, substitute Ansu Fati coming close to giving the lead again.

With 10 minutes to go, it was end-to-end stuff, the home side backed by their vociferous fans pushing for a winner but Brighton looking dangerous with their combinations and threat from the electric Tariq Lamptey and Fati. But Johnson will be the ultimate hero after finishing off what Son set up deep into stoppage time.
