Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur will look to continue their impressive run in the Premier League when they welcome Brighton to London in the lunch-time game this Saturday. 

The hosts come into this game on the back of a 4-0 win over Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa in the league. A hat-trick from South Korean attacker Son Heung-min and a goal from Swedish midfielder Dejan Kulusevski sealed all three points for Antonio Conte’s team.

The result ensures that ‘Lily Whites remain firmly in the mix for the final Champions League spot, and they will take courage from Arsenal’s recent struggles. 

With four wins from their last five games, Tottenham are the favourites to claim all three points in front of their home fans and, with a combined haul of 16 goals in their last five games, all seem perfect at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Meanwhile, Matt Doherty is expected to miss the rest of the season after picking up an injury in the win against Aston Villa, while Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp will also absent from this game.

Possible Tottenham starting line-up

Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ryan Sessegnon; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son.

Injured: Matt Doherty, Oliver Skipp, Japhet Tanganga 

Doubtful: None

Brighton & Hove Albion will look to make it two wins in two games when they travel to North London for the second time in a week. 

The visitors did Tottenham Hotspur a huge favour by beating Arsenal last weekend. Goals from Leandro Trossard and Enock Mwepu sealed the deal for Graham Potter’s side and made sure that Martin Odegaard’s strike was nothing but a consolation goal for the Gunners.

Producing the same trick against Tottenham Hotspur will not be a simple task as Graham Potter’s side comes up against the most in-form team in England.

Brighton & Hove Albion, are 11th in the league and have won just one of their last five league games. Head coach Graham Potter will heavily rely on attackers Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard, who have done well so far this season, having scored a combined 13 league goals as the Seagulls seek to improve on their league placements since gaining promotion.

Meanwhile, Jakub Moder, who missed the game at the Emirates Stadium, remains sidelined through injury.

Possible Brighton starting line-up

Robert Sanchez; Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Marc Cucurella; Yves Bissouma, Enock Mwepu, Tariq Lamptey; Leandro Trossard, Pascal Gross; Alexis Mac Allister, Danny Welbeck.
