Serge Aurier's first goal for Tottenham Hotspur and a late effort by Son Heung-min sealed a 2-0 win for the hosts over Brighton and Hove Albion to restore their place in the top four of the Premier League on Wednesday.

Aurier's 40th-minute cross completely deceived Brighton goalie Mat Ryan and the ball drifted into net to break the deadlock on a largely frustrating evening for the hosts who struggled to break down the visitors.

Tottenham lacked zip against a defensively-minded Brighton and there were some jitters in the home defence after the break.

Tomer Hemed had Brighton's best chance for an equaliser with a snap-shot but South Korean Son wrapped up the points with a glancing header late on from Christian Eriksen's free kick for his fourth goal in four games.
