In a dramatic encounter, Giovani Lo Celso and Joao Pedro clashed during Brighton’s impressive 4-2 victory over Tottenham. The heated exchange occurred in the closing moments of the match, adding intensity to Roberto De Zerbi’s team’s triumph, which halted Tottenham’s three-game winning streak.
Brighton secured the win with Pedro netting twice from the penalty spot, and goals from Jack Hinshelwood and Pervis Estupinan. Despite Spurs’ late rally, featuring a goal from Alejo Veliz (assisted by Son Heung-min) in the 81st minute and Ben Davies’ header just four minutes later, Brighton held on.
In a bid to manage the lead, De Zerbi made a strategic substitution, bringing off Pedro for Adam Lallana in the third minute of injury time. The Brazilian striker, who boasts seven goals in 19 Premier League appearances this season, left the field slowly, acknowledging fans with applause. Emerson Royal attempted to expedite his exit by nudging him toward the touchline, adding a touch of drama to Brighton’s impressive victory.
