Tottenham 2-0 Brighton Hove & Albion

Erik Lamela and Harry Kane were on target as Tottenham beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 to reach the League Cup quarter-finals.

Argentina midfielder Lamela hit the headlines with a stunning ‘rabona’ strike in the 5-1 UEFA Europa League hammering of Asteras Tripolis last week and he came off the bench to open the scoring at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.

England Under-21 striker Kane then followed up his hat-trick against Asteras by adding a second goal to seal a deserved victory against a Brighton side without a win in their last 10 Championship matches.

The quarter-final draw is:

  • Derby v Chelsea
  • Tottenham v Newcastle
  • Bournemouth v Liverpool
  • Sheffield United v Southampton

Matches to be played in the week beginning 15 December
