Brighton host Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening in a meeting between two of the Premier League’s top four going into the weekend.


The Seagulls scarcely skipped a beat following Roberto De Zerbi’s replacement of Graham Potter, earning an entertaining 3-3 draw away to Liverpool on the Italian’s debut.

De Zerbi’s compatriot Antonio Conte has come under scrutiny following a sequence of one win in four for Spurs – a run compounded by defeat in the derby to Arsenal last weekend.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming meeting between this duo.

Brighton team news

Enock Mwepu is unlikely to feature after he was hospitalised during international duty with Mali last month. Fellow midfielder Jakub Moder is continuing his recovery from a long-term knee injury, with a return cautiously scheduled for February.

Brighton Starting 11 (3-4-2-1): Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; March, Mac Allister, Caicedo, Estupinan; Trossard, Mitoma; Welbeck.
Bench: Steele, Lamptey, Colwill, Lallana, Sarmiento, Enciso, Undav, Gross, Gilmour.

Tottenham team news

Spurs will be without the services of Emerson Royal after the Brazilian was shown a needless red card in last weekend’s north London derby.

Japhet Tanganga is a doubt with a knock while Conte admitted he was “pessimistic” about Lucas Moura’s struggles with tendon inflammation. Dejan Kulusevski’s involvement is shrouded in uncertainty after the winger returned from international duty with a muscular problem.

Tottenham Starting 11 (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Perisic, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son.
Bench: Forster, Doherty, Skipp, Sanchez, Gil, Spence, Davies, Bissouma, Matar Sarr.

Brighton’s veteran midfielder Adam Lallana has beaten Spurs six times in his career and was bullish when predicting another victory this weekend. “We’re in extremely good form at the moment and are confident we can get three points,” he declared.

The mood in Tottenham’s slice of north London isn’t quite so defiant but Spurs remain a devilishly tricky opponent to beat – losing one of their last 14 in the league – especially if all 11 players remain on the pitch.

In what promises to be a fascinating battle between two sides desperate to lure the other forward before exploiting the space behind, both clubs may have to settle for a point.

Prediction: Brighton 2-2 Tottenham
