Premier League preview: Tottenham vs Brighton
Tottenham were put to the sword by Chelsea on Sunday in another lacklustre performance against a top side.
Under Mourinho, Spurs have now lost to Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
Midfield appears to be the north Londoner’s biggest area of concern with Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko once again not being up to the task.
Mourinho will need to find an alternative with the duo lacking creativity for the attack and organisation in front of back-four.
Sunday’s defeat means they have been pegged back in the race for the top four.
Spurs looked to be gaining on Chelsea, who had lost four of their last five in the league, but the loss leaves them six points behind now.
Brighton’s mixed run of form
December’s been a mixed month for the Seagulls who have won once, lost once and drawn twice.
A win over Arsenal gave them a big boost to start the month and they followed it up with a draw with Wolves.
In the A23 derby, Brighton were held to a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, having been pegged back by Wilfried Zaha.
But ahead of Thursday’s clash, they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United at home leaving them 13th.
