Alejo Véliz scored his first Premier League goal for Tottenham in their 4-2 loss vs. Brighton.
With Tottenham 4-0 down, the ball would fall to Véliz inside the penalty area and with the Brighton goalkeeper coming out, he would kick it with his right foot after a one-touch control and he would score. The 20-year-old striker celebrated effusively his first Premier League goal. This has been a rough season for him since, before this match, he had only played 14 minutes in six games.
Giovanni Lo Celso also entered the pitch in the second half for the Spurs, while Facundo Buonanotte started for Brighton and played 58 minutes. Tottenham’s defense suffered without Cristian Romero, who will continue to be out for the next 4-5 weeks.
