Lewis Dunk's Reaction To Harry Kane Clash Is Priceless
Brighton captain Lewis Dunk was involved in a bizarre tussle with Tottenham striker Harry Kane during the final minutes of their entertaining Premier League clash.
The 27-year-old, who produced a defensive masterclass against Mauricio Pochettino's side, appeared to claim that his opponent "tried to pull his penis off" after the pair battled for possession in the 88th minute.
Dunk was shown a yellow card for his head lock challenge on the Tottenham captain but the England international was far from happy with referee Jonathan Moss' decision, claiming that Kane was to blame.
Footage of the incident emerged on social media, with fans suggestions Dunk said: "I only done it because he were trying to pull my penis off."
A struggling Tottenham side suffered their second defeat in five days as Brighton humiliated the North London side in a dominant 3-0 win at The Amex.
Mauricio Pochettino's side were behind from the get go when Hugo Lloris conceded a howler with just two minutes on the clock.
Brighton's Neal Maupay pounced on a costly error from the French goalkeeper and to add insult to injury, Lloris was stretchered off after landing awkwardly on his arm.

Lloris was visibly in a huge amount pain after the incident, screaming in agony before receiving oxygen from club doctors.
It then went from bad to worse for Spurs as they conceded a second in the 32nd minute through the brilliant Aaron Connolly.
On his first start in the Premier League, the 19-year-old forward converted after his initial shot was saved by substitute goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Brighton fans began chanting "we want seven" as the humiliation continued for Mauricio Pochettino and his lacklustre Spurs side.

Tottenham looked to be feeling the full effects of that devastating 7-2 defeat against Bayern Munich in mid-week as their manager tried to rally the troops at half-time.
But they looked slow out of the blocks and in the 65th minute, that man Connolly scored his second of the game with one of the goals of the weekend.
He cut inside on the left wing before firing home with his trusty right boot, leaving a helpless Gazzaniga with no chance.

Brighton continued to dominate in the remaining half hour, testing Spurs' disjointed defence on a number of occasions, and eventually road out their 3-0 win with ease.
Mauricio Pochettino's side remain in sixth position in the Premier League table, but will likely fall down the ladder as those behind pick up points later on.
