Pochettino To Make A Surprise Inclusion At The Back: Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham Line-up To Face Brighton

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.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

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.
