Tottenham's woes continue, humbled by Brighton in Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Moussa Sissoko, has urged Mauricio Pochettino's side to remain united and move forward following their Premier League 3-0 defeat to Brighton on Saturday.

Hugo Lloris dropped the ball on the goal line and hurt himself in the process in only the third minute, allowing Neal Maupay to open the scoring, and it only got worse after that as Aaron Connolly's double gave the impressive Seagulls a deserved three points.

The Spurs goalkeeper was given oxygen and morphine as he was carried from the field before being taken to hospital.

Spurs then released a statement on the club's official website, confirming Lloris sustained a dislocated elbow during the match.

While it is too early to put a date on his return, a source told ESPN FC that Lloris can expect to miss up to two months, possibly more. A serious-looking injury to goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris capped a hard afternoon for last season's Champions League finalists, who are without an away Premier League victory in nine months.

A goal in each half by Brighton's man of the match 19-year-old striker Aaron Connolly condemned Tottenham to their biggest league defeat of the season, but the scoreline seemed nearly irrelevant, it was the manner in which Mauricio Pochettino's men performed that has to be of huge concern.

Humiliated in a 7-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich in midweek, Spurs needed a response to ward off rumours of disharmony but encountered only more pain at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

With Lloris replaced by Paulo Gazzaniga, the visitor looked to hit back but found a home side in inspired form despite a winless run of six games going into the match.

"My commitment is there after five and a half years", Pochettino said after the Brighton loss. I have to say thank you for the fans. "We need to stay together".

Aurier is very much in the bad books at the moment following his stupidity against Southampton and shocking display against Bayern, and is probably best off just keeping quiet and trying to knuckle down.

"This feeling is not so good". No excuses. The manager has been fantastic ever since he's been at the club and he's taken us to new heights.
