TOTTENHAM'S game against Brighton was momentarily delayed as the referee appeared to deal with a technical problem.
In a dramatic start, the two opposing managers also seemed to row on the touchline before the match kicked off.

Brighton boss De Zerbi was seen pointing a finger at Stellini as they shook hands ahead of the game.

"They are well positioned, they plan a match in the right way, they have many solutions also and they adapt themselves when you change something because they came from a good job that [Graham] Potter did with them.
