(EFE) .- A goal from the Welshman Gareth Bale to a pass from the Spanish Sergio Reguilón, gave the victory against Brighton to Tottenham (2-1), which rises to second place in the Premier and is two points behind the leader, the Liverpool.
The connection between the ex-Madridistas got Jose Mourinho’s team out of trouble, with the match stuck and without solutions against a rival who has only won one game and who considers relegation as a possibility.
Bale, who started as a substitute, took three minutes to make his exit to the pitch profitable. He was required by Mourinho with the match tied and jumped onto the pitch in the 70th minute for Eric Lamela.
An aerial pass from Sergio Reguilón from the left reached the area. Bale, head first, beat the Spaniard Robert Sánchez.
Until that moment, the match was entrenched for the London team despite the advantage it acquired shortly before the quarter of an hour thanks to a penalty that Adam Lallana committed on Harry Kane, which required the validation of the VAR and which transformed the ram himself.
In the second half, however, Graham Potter’s Brighton tied. Teriq Lamptey sent the ball to Pascal Gross who delivered a cross shot out of reach of Hugo Lloris.
Mourinho first turned to Argentine Giovanni Lo Celso, who replaced Frenchman Tanguy Ndombele but then called Bale, who jumped onto the pitch to play the last minutes. A little later came his goal and the three points for the Spurs.
The win places Tottenham in second place to the detriment of Everton. Mourinho’s team will close the seventh day two points behind the champion.
