Latest performances in all competitions
Brighton will look to continue their impressive start to the season when they welcome Tottenham to the AMEX Stadium.
The Seagulls come into this game off the back of an entertaining yet disappointing 3-3 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.
Leandro Trossard gave the visitors a two-goal lead after 17 minutes, but Jurgen Klopp’s men clawed two back through a Roberto Firmino brace, and almost secured a dramatic win after going in front through a Harry Webster own goal. However, Leandro Trossard returned to salvage a point for The Seagulls with his third strike of the day.
The shared points at Anfield was just about enough to keep Roberto De Zerbi’s side in the top four, and the Italian coach will now look to secure a better result this time when Antonio Conte’s side come visiting, with just one point separating them from Chelsea in fifth place.
Brighton have one of the best defensive records in the Premier League this season with the three conceded in their last match taking their tally of goals conceded to eight for the season. The Seagulls will have to put in another defensive performance when they take on Antonio Conte’s side who boast a devastating attacking trident.
Possible Brighton starting line-up
Robert Sanchez; Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster; Solly March, Moises Caicedo, Alexis Mac Allister, Pervis Estupinan; Leandro Trossard, Pascal Groß; Danny Welbeck.

Tottenham Hotspur fell to a 3-1 loss to Arsenal in their last League outing, and the Lilly Whites will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to the League leaders when they take on Roberto De Zerbi’s side.
Antonio Conte’s team are currently on a two-game winless run, following their 0-0 draw against Frankfurt in the Champions League. The Italian tactician coach saw any hopes of a title challenge squashed with the loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last weekend, and will now hope to take all three points against fellow top-four contenders to ensure that a top-four finish is still in the cards.
Tottenham Hotspur have lacked the creative nous of Dejan Kulusevski in the final third, the Swede has been out of action since the 6-2 win over Leicester, and Spurs have found it difficult to break down disciplined opponents without the attacker.
Antonio Conte will now be sweating on the fitness of his Swedish playmaker who is in contention to start the game, pending further physical tests as they take on a disciplined Brighton side.
Possible Tottenham starting line-up
Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Clement Lenglet; Matt Doherty, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ivan Perisic; Son Heung-min, Richarlison, Harry Kane.
Injured: Dejan Kulusevski, Lucas Moura
Suspended: Emerson Royal
