Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Brighton and Hove Albion In The Premier League
Tottenham will look to build on the 5-1 thrashing of Stoke City when they face Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday in the Premier League.
The win ended a four-game run without a league win, and manager Mauricio Pochettino is demanding his side to show the same consistency between now and the end of the season.
Spurs are 6th in the table and a win on Wednesday would take us above Arsenal and Liverpool, provided the two teams drop points this gameweek. Poch’s men will be aiming to flex their muscles against Brighton before taking on league leaders Manchester City three days later.
Pochettino will still be without the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama, who are nursing long-term injuries. Centre-back Davinson Sanchez will serve the second match of his ban following his red card against Watford.
Meanwhile, defender Jan Vertonghen needs to be careful as he is just a booking away from collecting five yellow cards.
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
The French international is the first choice for Pochettino in goal and should retain his place.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
He has been preferred over Serge Aurier in the league and should keep his place at right-back.
Eric Dier (CB)
With Alderwierald and Sanchez out, Dier will start again as a centre-back. His versatility makes him an indispensable figure in the Spurs team.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
The big Belgian is a rock at the back for the London outfit and should keep his place in the heart of the defence.
Danny Rose (LB)
With an eye on the game against City at the weekend, Poch should start Rose over Ben Davies in order to give the Wales international some rest.
Harry Winks (CM)
The youngster has performed very well this season and will get another shot to show his class.
Mousa Dembele (CM)
He needs games on a regular basis to overcome the rustiness. The Belgian will be tasked with the responsibility of adding steel in the midfield.
Christian Eriksen (RW)
Having lost some form in the last few games, his goal against Stoke should do a world of good. The Dane will need to show his creativity to unlock the Brighton defence.
Dele Alli (CAM)
Alli is also suffering a dip in form. Despite failing to influence the game against the Potters, he should retain his place in the No.10 role, against Brighton.
Heung-Min Son (LW)
He was the best player against Stoke. Adds flair, pace and width to the team with his non-stop running. A sure-shot starter!
Harry Kane (ST)
Wasn’t exactly clinical last game, yet succeeded in bagging a brace. Spurs will need their talisman Kane to be at his best, for them to make sure they bag all three points.
[Video] Amazing new time-lapse footage showcases pitch and seating areas of Tottenham’s new stadium
Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.
The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.
A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.
The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.
Hopefully, the venue will be completed quickly. Tottenham have spent a lot of time away from home with Wembley being used as a temporary ground. We even played a Carabao Cup game against Watford at Stadium MK.
“Star on and off the pitch” – Some Tottenham fans react to Spurs star’s hilarious dance
Lucas Moura seems to be enjoying his season with Tottenham. The Brazilian had a fantastic performance against Manchester United a few weeks ago and was even recalled to the Brazil squad during the recent international break.
The former PSG man has become a starter for Spurs and a recent video was shared by Moussa Sissoko of the Brazilian dancing.

Spurs beat West Ham in a tough London derby on Saturday and will need another quality performance against PSV Eindhoven in midweek.
Tottenham have lost their two Champions League group games this season, and we need to defeat the Dutch team to have any chance of making it into the next round.
Tottenham downplay interest in signing 25-year-old Colombian star
Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.
Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.
Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.
The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:
“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.
“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.
“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.
“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”
Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
Hopefully, the right signings can help us push on this season and lead us to our first ever Premier League title.
