GALLERY: The best photos as Spurs see off Brighton - Lamela celebration included

Goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela helped Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-0 win against Brighton in the League Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur secured a League Cup quarter-final clash against Newcastle United after a 2-0 win against Brighton last night.

Goals from the in form Harry Kane and Argentina star Erik Lamela were enough to help Spurs over the line against the Championship team, as Tottenham stare at the possibility of some realistic silverware this season.

It was also a significant game for Spurs defender Kyle Naughton, who returned to the starting line-up following a spell out with an ankle problem, which has seen Eric Dier covering on the right hand side of the back four.

Spurs were simply too good for their opponents on the night, with the difference between the two divisions and the two squads evident over the course of the 90 minutes.

Focus for Spurs now switches back to the Premier League trip to Aston Villa this Sunday, where Spurs will be looking to right the wrong of the defeat against Newcastle United last weekend.

Kane in particular has put Pochettino into a difficult position with his performance, as the boss mulls over who should start up front against Villa.

Here are the best photos from the game last night.
