Brighton host Spurs this weekend in hope of recording their second win of the Premier League season and claiming another big scalp in the process.
It’s been a difficult few weeks for Spurs, who, after looking in control mid-week against Inter Milan, conceded two late goals to mark three defeats in a row for the London based side. Manager Mauricio Pochettino will be concerned that two of those defeats came after Spurs took the lead, and he will be looking for a much more assured performance this week from his team. Spurs will still be without first choice keeper and captain Hugo Lloris, so it will be imperative that the defensive line gives Michel Vorm as much protection as possible.
Brighton’s last two affairs have both been high scoring games resulting in 2-2 score lines in both matches, meaning they find themselves just three points of the relegation zone at this early point of the season. Chris Hughton can be happy that his side have battled back from being down in both games, with Brighton talisman Glen Murray scoring late penalties in both games to bag The Seagulls a point in those matches.
Still, Hughton will be wary of a Spurs side who badly need a win, and he will be hoping Harry Kane can keep up his baron run, with the Englishman not scoring for Spurs since, their 3-0 away win at Manchester United last month.
- Brighton are without Pascal Groß who is out with an injury.
- Spurs are still without Hugo Lloris, while Dele Alli is still a doubt.
Potential Brighton Starting XI: Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Stephens, March, Bissouma, Pröpper, Jahanbakhsh; Murray
Potential Spurs Starting XI: Vorm; Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Eriksen, Dier, Dembele; Moura, Kane, Son
Head To Head
- Brighton haven’t beaten Spurs since 1983.
- The last meeting between the two sides ended in a 1-1 draw.

I see Spurs getting out of their slump here and claiming all three points. Harry Kane will be itching to get back on the score sheet and I think he will here.
Avid combat sports fan focusing mainly on football, boxing and MMA. First fight I ever watched was Ricky Hatton v Kostya Tszyu but Joe Calzaghe v Jeff Lacy is what got me hooked back in the glory days of ITV coverage. From here I naturally progressed into watching (and training) MMA, which I have followed for the last 9 or 10 years. Season ticket holder at Old Trafford.
