Watch: Harry Kane manhandled by Lewis Dunk after grabbing him the wrong way during the Premier League encounter between Tottenham and Brighton.
Tottenham have now been reduced to rubble after their second consecutive humiliating loss last night. The Lilywhites look a shadow of the team that advanced to the Champions League final last season. They have now lost more matches than any other English top flight side in 2019.
Their 17 losses so far this year have become increasing embarrassing with the 7-2 drubbing by Bayern Munich at home and 3-0 to Brighton who were fighting a losing battle to stay in the Premier League before their shock win last night.
Hugo Lloris’ howler within 3 minutes allowed the Seagulls to score the opener before Aaron Connolly scored a brace to make the score 3 nil. Tottenham were just in shambles and Harry Kane’s performance was an absolute reflection of how horrible they were.
Kane would go on to make only 8 passes in the entire match. 4 of them came from kick-off. However, it is his altercation on the pitch with his opposite number that has gained the ridicule from fans for the absurdity surrounding the event.

With 2 minutes remaining into the match, Kane and Brighton Captain Lewis Dunk, appeared to wrestle for a loose ball in the middle of the park quite literally. Dunk would go on and slam Kane to the ground after catching him in a headlock. However, it appears that Dunk signals to the referee that Kane had grabbed him by the genitals, leaving him with no choice.

Dunk would go on to receive a yellow card. However, it is still unfathomable that something so ridiculous could happen on a stage like the Premier League. And yet this is exactly what happened. Anything can happen in the prem they said. This wasn’t quite what we had in mind though.
