Brighton were quick to troll Tottenham and Arsenal on social media following their victory over the former in the Premier League on Sunday, jokingly suggesting that they owned north London having now beaten each side over the past week.

Leandro Trossard struck in the 90th minute to seal a major victory for Graham Potter's Seagulls over Antonio Conte's Champions League spot-chasing hosts.
