Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Brighton and Hove Albion In The Premier League

Tottenham will be looking to get back to winning ways after the 2-1 loss at the hands of Manchester City in their last game.

We remain 4th in the Premier League standings but have a 7 point lead over Chelsea as we look to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season as well.

The more pressing issue is the fact that we have an FA Cup semi-final during the weekend against Manchester United and we could see a few players getting rested against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris did not have the best of games against Manchester City but he should still start the game against Brighton.

Serge Aurier (RB)

Serge Aurier should start the game ahead of Kieran Trippier as Mauricio Pochettino might look to rotate his team.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez should be another player to get the nod for this game as we would not want to mess around with our central defensive partnership.

Jan Vertonghen

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

The Belgian has been one of our best players this season and there is no reason to drop him at all.

Ben Davies (LB)

With Danny Rose out injured, Ben Davies should start this game as we look to stay in the top-four.

Victor Wanyama (CM)

Another chance to mix things up a bit, Eric Dier could be given a rest and Wanyama should be given a start against Brighton.

Mousa Dembele (CM)

Dembele is slowly getting back to his best and giving him another start should be the way ahead.

Son Heung-min (LW)

It was a bit of a surprise seeing Son get rested for the match against City but the South Korean must surely start the game against Chris Hughton’s men.

Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

Probably our best attacking midfielder, Eriksen did manage to score against City and he will look to do the same against the Seagulls.

Lucas Moura (RW)

Lucas Moura had a cameo in the previous match and he was one of our better players. With a need to rotate and keep our players fresh, this is the perfect chance for the Brazilian to start a game.

Fernando Llorente (ST)

While Harry Kane might look to catch Mohamed Salah in the golden boot race, keeping him fit for the FA Cup is more important and Fernando Llorente should get the nod to start this game.

Tottenham interested in signing 22-year-old Serie A ace as possible replacement for Toby Alderweireld



Joachim Andersen

Joachim Andersen (C)

Premium Sport (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Tottenham have found a Toby Alderweireld replacement in Joachim Andersen.

The 22-year-old Sampdoria defender has eight Serie A appearances this season and has helped the side to fifth place in the table.

The report claims that Alderweireld has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Manchester United. The Dane joined the Serie A side from FC Twente last season for a fee of €4million (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that Juventus and Inter Milan are interested in the 22-year-old, and the Milan club has a history of signing players from Sampdoria.

Milan Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has become one of the best defenders in the league. The report further claims that Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero wants at least €30million for the defender.

Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham have a problem with Alderweireld as the report claims his contract is up in 2019 and could leave for free if terms are not agreed on a new deal.

The Belgian is one of the best defenders in the Premier League and losing him would be a big blow. Spurs have a great partnership between Jan Vertonghen and Alderweireld and we must look to keep the pair for as long as possible.

Andersen could be a decent option for Spurs should we sign him on the cheap. Tottenham have Davinson Sanchez as the other defender fighting for a starting spot in the heart of the defence currently and Andersen would be a good choice.

“No, of course not” – Young Tottenham star ready to play for England U21 despite featuring for senior side



Harry Winks of Tottenham

Harry Winks is ready to play for the England U21 side and follow the footsteps of Harry Kane. The U21 side have qualified for the Euros and the midfielder was asked if he had any issues playing for the U21s.

The Englishman was quoted by the Evening Standard as saying:

“No, of course not.

“The more games I play the better. I have missed a lot of football with my ankle injury and I’ve had a lot of problems with it still to this day.

“I have to manage it at times, but playing for your country is an honour, regardless of the level; under 21s, under 19s, under 18s, under 17s.

Harry Winks

Kane played for the U21s in the 2015 European Championship despite playing for the senior side a couple of months earlier, as per the report.

The Tottenham midfielder played the entire 90 minutes for the Three Lions in their 3-2 win over Spain and put up a good performance.

The 21-year-old had an injury-plagued 2017/18 season but seems to have put those concerns behind him in the current campaign.

Winks has a couple of Premier League starts to his name and should have a big role to play as we look to win silverware under Mauricio Pochettino. He is such a great talent and we’d benefit a lot if he fulfills his potential at Tottenham.

Tottenham interested in January move for £15m West Brom attacker



Oliver Burke

Tottenham are interested in West Bromwich Albion winger Oliver Burke, according to the Sun (h/t Express). The Scot has a goal from two Carabao Cup appearances for the Baggies this season but hasn’t made a start in the Championship.

The report adds that Tottenham and Newcastle scouts watched the 21-year-old against Blackpool last week. The 21-year-old was a rising star for Nottingham Forest and joined RB Leipzig in the 2016/17 season.

However, the youngster was brought back to the English game, with West Brom signing the player for £15m (h/t Express) at the start of last season.

Burke failed to make an impression for the Baggies as they were relegated from the Premier League. The youngster failed to score a goal for the team, and the report adds that the player will not come on the cheap.

Tottenham did not sign a single player in the summer, and it will be interesting to see how we deal with the January transfer window.

Burke hasn’t been great in the past two years but working under Mauricio Pochettino could be the right move for the youngster.
