Tottenham return to Premier League action after a poor Champions League opener. Losing to Inter Milan in the last seconds of the game was a big blow to a side that had already been defeated twice this season.
Spurs dominated the game against Inter but were left to rue a few missed chances. Harry Kane looked tired while some of the other players should have done better.
Tottenham are already six points behind the leaders in the Premier League and have to get back to winning ways. However, facing Brighton away from home will not be easy.
Spurs have some decisions to make regarding their starting XI and here is our predicted team to face Brighton.
Predicted Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Michel Vorm (GK)
Vorm has struggled in recent games but he should keep his place, given that he didn’t make major mistakes in the 2-1 loss at Inter.
Danny Rose (LB)
The Englishman received a few minutes at San Siro but should start in place of Ben Davies as our left-back.
Toby Alderweireld (CB)
Alderweireld wasn’t taken to Milan and should start in a back four against Brighton.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
Vertonghen is one of the best defenders in the league and should start this game. The Belgian has to put up a great showing as we must aim to keep a clean sheet.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
Another player who did not travel to Milan, Trippier must play against the Seagulls.
Victor Wanyama (CM)
We need more steel in the midfield and Wanyama has to start in place of Eric Dier, who has struggled in the last three games.
Christian Eriksen (CM)
Eriksen got the only goal for us against Inter and his passing could be key to unlocking the Brighton defence.
Mousa Dembele (CM)
Dembele should be the third player in our midfield as we must control the middle of the park.
Son Heung-min (RW)
We could see Son play a more attacking role in the team and support Kane from the right-wing.
Lucas Moura (LW)
Moura’s form has deserted him since the win over Manchester United but we could see the Brazilian starting out-wide.
Harry Kane (ST)
We don’t have a lot of options up front and Kane must be started.
