Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton Premier League Match Result February 2024

Substitute Brennan Johnson delivered a dramatic 96th-minute winner, propelling Tottenham to a remarkable 2-1 comeback victory over Brighton and securing their spot in the top four.

Johnson's decisive strike, set up by fellow substitute Heung-Min Son, marked his first appearance for Spurs in 2024 after returning from the Asian Cup.

Brighton seized a deserved lead in the 17th minute when Micky van de Ven fouled Danny Welbeck, allowing Pascal Gross to convert a penalty.

However, Tottenham's relentless pressure paid off as Pape Sarr found the net with a rebounded effort in the 61st minute, extending their scoring streak to 36 consecutive Premier League games—a joint-second longest streak in the competition's history.

Despite Brighton's efforts, including a missed opportunity by substitute Ansu Fati in the 76th minute, Tottenham secured the victory in the dying seconds through Johnson's heroics, propelling them a point above Aston Villa into fourth place. Unai Emery's side, now in fourth, is set to face Manchester United on Sunday in a live Sky Sports broadcast.

Brighton's heartbreaking defeat deals a blow to their European qualification aspirations, as they remain in eighth place, trailing fifth-placed Villa by 11 points.
