The miserable week of tottenham lasted as they accompanied their League humiliation in the hands of Bayern Munich having a destructive defeat at Brighton.
Following their 7-2 drubbing in midweek, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino expected a response from his players a opener.
Even the Spurs captain suffered a nut harm in the process, and Aaron Connolly compounded Tottenhams problems by doubling Brightons guide.
And though Spurs left a positive start Connolly killed off any hope of them launch a fightback because the 19-year-old Irish striker produced a attack for his second goal to secure Brightons first home win.
Tottenham have failed to win in their past away 10 games stretching back on 20 January.
A weeks home win from Southampton provided Spurs some aid after being thrown from their Carabao Cup by League 2 Colchester but the pressure is mounting Pochettino with his negative with currently taken 11 points from a possible 24 this period.
After being at fault for Southamptons aim Saturday, Lloris perpetrated another glaring mistake as he attempted to grab a Pascal Gross cross instead of hammering it and his sanity observed him stagger back into his own objective.
Eventually, the France captain dropped the ball until he crossed the goalline but hurt his arm as he had to be substituted by Paulo Gazzaniga and attempted to break his fall.
And although a close-range attempt was obstructed by the substitute keeper the youngster slammed in the rally.
Lewis Dunk then released Connolly down the left and he cut inside before firing in the far post to fasten the second win of the year of Brighton.
It was Graham Potters first triumph in the Amex, lifting the Seagulls into 12th prior to the day kick-offs, with Tottenham place to slip out of the top six.
