The humble one makes a return on Boxing day


Tottenham kick off Boxing day fixture in the premier with a win at home to Brighton&Hove Albion to revive their hope of a top four finish.


After the disappointing 0-2 defeat to Chelsea at home over the weekend Jose Mourinho knew he cant afford to loose back to back home games if Spurs still want to make top four and the only option was to get a win over Brighton to set them back on track.


Jose Mourinho made just two changes to the side that lost to Chelsea,Harry Winks replace Eric Dier surprisingly while Ryan Sessegnon made his first premier league appearance in the absence of suspended Son Heung-Min.

It was a slow start for Spurs as they went behind in the 37th minute when Adam Webster strike put the visitors ahead after Spurs had a goal cancelled by VAR,first half ended without Spurs getting one back,but they came into the second half fired up,and after couple of chances missed Harry Kane came up with the leveller in just 8minutes into the second half.

Dele Ali doubled the lead on the 72nd minute and that turned out to be the all important goal to secure 5th place and 29points. Jose Mourinho 'The humble one' agreed and pointed to the loss against Chelsea as reason they started the game slowly and added that it also affected the confidence of the players.


Its the last home game for 'The humble one' this year and he bows out with a win but he has one more game away to Norwich to wrap up his year.
