Player Ratings: Tottenham get back on track vs. Brighton Hove and Albion

Erik Lamela got the Spurs going after a scoreless first half. From there, Tottenham cruised to a 2-1 Capital One Cup win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Two second-half goals from Erik Lamela and Harry Kane gave Spurs a much-needed win after the weekend's lacklustre performance in the Premier League against Newcastle. Despite the eventual ease of victory, this was never a wholly convincing display by a Spurs team up against a very mediocre Brighton side. Yet again Spurs looked sluggish and predictable in their build-up and missing an attacking edge up front.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino might have complained midweek that Spurs' problems stemmed...

New boss Mauricio Pochettino facing same old problems at Tottenham

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner explains that someone needs to step up and accept responsibility as Mauricio Pochettino's men are off to their worst EPL start in the past six seasons.

Erik Lamela's gloriously impudent rabona against Astera Tripoli on Thursday then getting mugged by Newcastle on Sunday was typical Tottenham: stylistic triumph nullified by a lack of substance.

Mauricio Pochettino finds himself facing an onrushing danger of being boxed alongside Andre Villas-Boas, Tim Sherwood and Juande Ramos as a manager who cannot overturn a Tottenham trend for being flaky.

A favourite club anthem deepens in irony as the years roll on. "Tottenham, Tottenham, no one can stop them,"...

Daniel Levy is the man to blame for Spurs' failings in recent years

Tottenham manager Maurico Pochettino expressed his disappointment Spurs suffered a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane.

How many times is it possible to experience deja vu? It is tempting to call Tottenham's second-half disintegration in Sunday's 2-1 loss against Newcastle the most hapless, spineless and inept 45 minutes of the season. Yet to do so would merely be a visceral response to the most recent pain. The real truth is that Spurs played pretty much the same way they have all season and last.

I've had no thanks from commenters for saying this in the past, but it bears saying again. The constant suggestions...

Clint Dempsey set for Premier League return, Christoph Kramer to Spurs too?

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is open to a permanent move for Victor Valdes after it was announced the goalkeeper would be recovering from his knee injury at Old Trafford.
Christoph Kramer is on loan from Bayer Leverkusen to Borussia Monchengladbach, but he could soon be calling the Premier League home.

Wait, the transfer window is closed? That's news to the Transfer Talk crew. There are still plenty of transfer-related rumours around the world.

Poch, Spurs eyeing Kramer

World Cup winner and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Christoph Kramer could soon be the target of a transfer bid from Tottenham Hotspur, according to Metro.co.uk.

Franco Baldini, the technical director for Spurs, is rumoured to have scouted Kramer several times and boss Mauricio Pochettino was certainly put over the edge after losing...

Player Ratings: Rudderless Spurs crash against Newcastle

Tottenham manager Maurico Pochettino expressed his disappointment Spurs suffered a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane.

White Hart Lane was once a fortress, but now it more resembles an amusement park from which all visitors leave with a smile. Spurs have lost three games at home this season after Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Newcastle, and manager Mauricio Pochettino's side look far more comfortable when on the road, even if the results have yet to prove it.

Three Points: Tottenham vs. Newcastle

LONDON -- A trio of observations on Newcastle United's 2-1 comeback win vs. Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in the Premier League.

1. Table tightens up

A huge lift for Newcastle, another crash down to earth for Tottenham, and something of a crunch in the middle of the table.

After this 2-1 win at White Hart Lane, Newcastle are now within a point of Spurs. That is all the starker because of the strikingly different circumstances of these clubs before this match.
