Tottenham Hotspur has left points in the Premier League at home against the low-ranked Fulham. The London derby ended in 1-1, but Manchester City won in his own home. It turned 1-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion, which, like Fulham, lives in the lower regions.
City rose through victory to a shared third place behind Liverpool and leading Manchester United.
The Spurs could have made that jump, but failed to take three points, although at first it did not look forward to that. In fact, there seemed like a simple victory in the making.
The home team was clearly in charge for rest, and after Son Heung-min had already missed two big opportunities, Harry Kane went out of a beautiful front of Sergio Reguilón.
In the second half, Fulham, with Kenny Tete in the base, biting off a lot brighter. It penetrated Tottenham back, but that gave nothing away for a long time and almost came to 2-0 via Son. However, the Koreans pull ended up on the pole.
Fifteen minutes before Fulham was paid to work. With a nice headball Ivan Cavaleiro signed for the 1-1 deserved. Ruben Loftus-Cheek was even close to the 1-2, but a defeat was spared to the team of José Mourinho.
Brave Brighton doesnt dig in, but does lose
Brighton & Hove Albion is perhaps the RKC Waalwijk of the Premier League. The team of trainer Graham Potter often receives compliments for the well-groomed game, but in terms of points the team does not always get what it is entitled to.
Also, when visiting Manchester City, Brighton, with Davy Pröpper and Joël Veltman in the base, did not dug in. But it wasnt enough for a point. City won 1-0.
Brighton started brutally, put pressure on City early, and trainer Pep Guardiolas team had a hard time with that. However, at a stroke of rest, Phil Foden made 1-0 with a slider in the short corner, which was already his eighth hit this season, most of all City players.
City started convincingly after rest, but after Mahrez and Bernardo Silva missed a huge opportunity, Brighton sought the attack. The strong playing Pröpper himself was close to the 1-1 a few times, so he was one toe length too short to slip into the second pole.
The best odds remained for City, but Brighton-goalkeeper Robert Sánchez had an answer to everything. And if he didnt, pole and bar would bring salvation. In injury time, Raheem Sterling was given the chance to increase the score from the penalty point, but the understudy hit high over the target.
