Son helps Spurs see off Brentford and move sixth

Tottenham earned back-to-back Premier League wins under Antonio Conte for the first time as a 2-0 victory over Brentford moved them up to within two points of the top four. With Sunday's postponement at Burnley denying Spurs the chance to respond to last Thursday's embarrassing Europa Conference League defeat at NS Mura, their first-ever top-flight meeting with Brentford presented Conte's men with the opportunity to bounce back - and it was one they seized. Ben Davies forced an early own goal from Sergi Canos, and Heung-Min Son wrapped up the victory with a sweeping counter-attacking second midway through the second half as Spurs, who remain far from the finished article, showed signs that Conte's methods were finally beginning to bear fruit. For Brentford, having arrested their...

Brighton 2-0 Watford: Shane Duffy and Neal Maupay fire as Seagulls Soar to Second

Brighton moved to second in the Premier League after making it back-to-back wins with a 2-0 victory over Watford.

Gareth Southgate will have breathed a sigh of relief when the full-time whistle in Sunday's 1-0 win over Romania meant his England side had come through their final warm-up game unscathed.

Henderson made his long-awaited return to action as a half-time substitute and, while there were some signs of rustiness on the ball, he played the pass which led to the second penalty and appeared to come through the run-out in good shape - although his over-eagerness to make his mark by taking the penalty off Dominic Calvert-Lewin was a bad call.
