Gary Lineker reacts to Tottenham’s defeat against Brighton

The intent from the start was to win the game and we managed to do that, great performance by the team.

He said: "I am responsible for the situation of the team". Every club goes through it.

Not many had, judging by the fact that not a single person picked the young forward in the Premier League's Fantasy Football game at the start of the season.

"I have no doubt we are going to stay together and find a way to be successful again, no doubt. We have to apologise to the supporters who travelled and watched that because it was not acceptable".

Today they has no come back, they must regroup for their next fixture.

Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham was right not to replace Kieran Trippier for this season despite preparing to line up with Moussa Sissoko at right-back.

But the hosts showed no mercy, scoring three unanswered goals to pile the pressure on Tottenham's Argentinian manager.

De Gea blasts Man Utd attack: We didn't create anything
Newcastle nearly took the lead in spectacular fashion after 28 minutes but Longstaff saw his long range shot hit the crossbar. Some of the boys lack a little bit of composure and we don't create enough chances to win a game of football.

No replacements were brought in for the full back, who had been Spurs' first-choice ahead of current incumbent Serge Aurier. Spurs ticked all of the unwanted boxes on Saturday.

Defeat at the Amex stadium was compounded by a bad injury to goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who was stretchered off after falling heavily on his arm in conceding Brighton's third-minute opener to Neal Maupay.

He said: "We all think the same". Led by striker and England captain Harry Kane, Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen and goalkeeper/team captain Hugo Lloris, there appeared to be plenty of talent in key positions for Spurs to make them a formidable opponent on any given day.

The Argentine tactician is one of several high-profile figures to be seeing their respective futures called into question, with Murphy admitting that uncertainty is doing the collective cause few favours.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says he is not anxious about the sack despite his side's poor form. The team have won just nine of 29 matches in all competitions.

The players, too, need to return for the home game against Watford on Saturday week with renewed focus and vigour and, in some cases, that means trying to put to one side the gripes about money, contracts and transfer opportunities that they have had.
