Mat Ryan and Aaron Mooy both played their part as Brighton & Hove Albion defeated Tottenham 3-0 in a shock Premier League victory in the early kick-off on Saturday.

Ryan starred with several top saves, earning a 7/10 while Mooy put in a rare full shift and received a 8/10 from the Brighton & Hove Independent.

On Ryan, they wrote: “Brave play out from the back that led to the goal. Looked like a proper ball-playing keeper today.

“Pulled some great saves out of the bag to deny Kane from close range and Moura from 20 yards out.”

On Mooy, they wrote: “Instrumental in the dynamic Albion midfield today. Kept possession well leading up to Connolly's first goal.

“Looked to play the ball forward every time. Ran and fought all day. Top performance.”
