Tottenham's run to the Carabao Cup final

Follow all the action as Tottenham Hotspur host Fulham in a hastily rearranged London derby in the Premier League this evening. 

Parker sent out a strong starting eleven for Fulham’s FA Cup third round victory over west London rivals QPR as the club seek to maintain their newfound momentum. It was not quite an avalanche of points, but four draws in succession in the league still represented a marked improvement before an outbreak of Covid within the Cottagers’ squad. Spurs, meanwhile, still have an optimistic eye on the title race and victory tonight would see them move to within four points of leaders Manchester United. Their squad is well-rested, too, after a heavily rotated side defeated Marine in an FA Cup tie to remember last time out.  Follow all the action live below at the conclusion of Man City vs Brighton:

Man City vs Brighton

Reaction from Man City match winner Phil Foden: 

It definitely feels like we're back to our best. We've taken confidence from the last few results.

"We could have done better today but overall I'm very proud of the team. It's a great result.

"Brighton defended really well and had a good game plan. To get the goal before half-time was really important. It ended up as the winning goal so I'm delighted.

"I don't score too many with my right foot so I enjoyed it.

"I always like to score goals and be there in the box. We just want to keep going with this form and pushing to win the league."

Brighton are in real trouble now. They’re only three points above Fulham but the Cottagers have three games in hand on them. 

One of them is up next as they prepare to line up against Tottenham.

Man City 1 - 0 Brighton

90+3 mins: Full time. It doesn’t matter as Man City hold on to claim the three points. It’s seven wins in a row for Man City who continue to chase down Liverpool and Manchester United.

Man City 1 - 0 Brighton

90+2 mins: Missed! Sterling takes the penalty and smashes it straight over the bar. Pep Guardiola can’t believe it.
