Harry Kane became the Premier League’s all-time leading away goalscorer as Tottenham recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory at Brighton.
The visitors broke the deadlock shortly before half-time when Dejan Kulusevski’s effort just outside the penalty area was deflected by Cristian Romero and Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez at counter foot.

After tenacious work to close Sanchez’s heavy throw-in outside the box, the England captain’s weak-footed effort rolled across the face of the six-yard box.
