Team News:
Tottenham
Tottenham must get their top four charge back on track during their home fixture against Brighton and Hove Albion. They are currently in third position, but it is far from secure, with only three points separating them from Manchester United in 6th. The weekend’s results were positive for them, as two of their three rivals dropped points. The supporters will be focused on the Champions League, but Mauricio Pochettino will know the importance of finishing in the top four. To ensure they achieve this, they can’t afford to drop any more points.

This season has been another one of progression for Tottenham and it will remain as such even if they fail to lift a trophy. The only chance they have of silverware comes in the Champions League, with a semi-final clash against Ajax on the horizon. The recent injury to Harry Kane has given them attacking problems, but Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura have stepped up to offer alternative options. They have a 100% record at their new stadium so far and they will be desperate to maintain that with another victory on Tuesday night.
Hugo Lloris should be back to start for the home side, after missing the trip to Manchester City in the league. However, Harry Kane remains on the injury list and won’t be fit to feature on Tuesday night.

Brighton
Brighton are in a vulnerable position at the bottom of the table. They have a three-point lead on Cardiff City in 18th position with a superior goal difference and a game in hand. Unfortunately for the Seagulls, their game in hand is away from home against Tottenham. They will look to be difficult to break down and try to nick a goal via a set piece situation. That is their best chance of winning at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There were positive signs in terms of their defensive efforts against Wolves as they kept a vital clean sheet. However, they didn’t offer a lot of attacking threat and that remains a major concern.
Anthony Knockaert will be missing as he serves the final match of his three-game ban. Davy Propper is unlikely to play after being taken off with an injury at the weekend. Bruno was also taken off against Wolves, but he could be okay to start against Tottenham.

Key Stats

Tottenham have lost 11 Premier League matches, which is more than they have suffered in their previous two campaigns.

Brighton haven’t won away against Tottenham since 1981. They will be hoping to strengthen their survival hopes by ending that record this weekend.
