Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton & Hove Albion match preview

A key fixture in the race for European places.

Tottenham Hotspur’s top four hopes suffered a real set back on Monday night, only managing a draw with Everton.

The away side were in complete control at Goodison, a goal up and a man up following Doucouré's red card and then Harry Kane converted penalty just nine minutes later.

However, Cristian Stellini’s side retreated, simply seeking to see the game out, and were punished, with Everton equalising in stoppage time.

This means Spurs are still winless away from home since mid-January so have slipped down to fifth, three points below both Newcastle and Man United, having played a game more.

After this, Tottenham host Bournemouth before a key week in which they face Newcastle away, Man United at home and then Liverpool away; that’ll be season-defining.

At home, the Lilywhites have won each of their last four league engagements, desperately needing to extend that streak here.

Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile continue to impress, having not lost a Premier League away game since 22 October.

On Tuesday night, the Seagulls beat Bournemouth 2-0 at Dean Court, thanks to Evan Ferguson deft flick and then Julio Enciso composed finish.

Having only tasted defeat in one of their last 11, Roberto De Zerbi’s side are up to sixth, a mere four points below Spurs with two games in hand.

Brighton travel to Chelsea next weekend, in the Graham Potter is no longer our manager derby, before facing Man United at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-finals.

The Seagulls did win 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium almost exactly 12 months ago, with this their first victory in N17 since 1981.

Can the away side repeat that feat, very much propelling themselves back in the top four conversation in the process?

Tottenham Hotspur team news

In the first game of the post-Antonio Conte era, Cristian Stellini deployed an identical 5-2-3, with the team putting in a Conte-esque performance, which is to say they were generally bad.

Hugo Lloris was back in goal, making his first appearance since the win over Manchester City on 5 February due to injury.

With Emerson and Ben Davies sidelined, Pedro Porro and Ivan Perišić will be at full-back for the foreseeable future.

Lucas Moura, who was given a rare appearance on Monday, will now be suspended for three games following his red card.

In attack, fellow-Brazilian Richarlison, who was spotted at the women’s Finalissima on Thursday, could be back in contention after injury.

Predicted XI (5-2-3): Lloris; Porro, Romero, Dier, Lenlet, Perišić; Højbjerg, Skipp; Kuluševski, Son Heung-min, Kane.

Brighton & Hove Albion team news

Roberto De Zerbi could name an unchanged line-up from Tuesday night’s win at Bournemouth.

Midfielders Moisés Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister both suffered slight knocks in that game, but are expected to be fit.

Mac Allister and Kaoru Mitoma are both into double figures for goals this season, while Solly March and Evan Ferguson both just two off that milestone.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Steele; Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Estupiñán; Caicedo, Groß, Mac Allister, March, Mitoma; Ferguson.
