Brighton’s Leandro Trossard strikes late to dent Tottenham’s top-four hopes

Baked by Easter sun and seemingly overburdened by expectation, Tottenham reverted to fallible type. For the second time in a week Brighton damaged a north London club’s top-four challenge, with Leandro Trossard’s late goal, stolen after Cristian Romero’s slip in his own box, repeating what happened to Arsenal at the Emirates.Romero, stumbling in tackling Adam Lallana, the late substitute, presented Trossard with the chance to score the winner Brighton – and Tottenham – deserved. Until a volley from Steven Bergwijn following Trossard’s goal Robert Sánchez in the Brighton goal barely had a shot to face, and none on target, his work usually done for him by a defence throwing in repeated heroic blocks.
