Latest Brighton injury news ahead of Tottenham Hotspur clash

According to The Argus, Graham Potter has provided the latest injury news on the Brighton squad ahead of their match against Tottenham Hotspur later today. The Premier League fixture will take place at The Amex as both teams will be looking to get past their disappointing result in the previous game.

Adam Lallana had picked up a hamstring problem during his side’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend. As such, he is a doubt to feature in the clash later today against Spurs. Potter has now given an update on the setback in the pre-match press conference. He said:

“We’re just waiting on a scan for Adam Lallana, but it looks like it’s going to be a minor problem. It’s a case of getting it diagnosed properly and then going from there.”

Adam Webster has been out of contention for quite some time and would be on the sidelines once again following a groin strain issue. Enock Mwepu recently returned to the Brighton and Hove Albion squad for their match against the Reds and would be available against Tottenham later today as well.

Three points are a must!

The loss to Manchester United in the previous fixture was a disappointing one, to say the least, as we deserved to get at least a draw, looking at our performance. That has seen us continue our inconsistent form, where we follow a win with a subsequent loss. Even three points today would see that run continue, but we can look forward to getting over it in the next game.

Antonio Conte and his side cannot afford to drop any more points if there are ambitions to achieve Champions League qualification for the next season. As such, we must do our best and be the victors at the end of the night against the Seagulls.

We have some injury concerns of our own with Oliver Skipp, Japhet Tanganga and Ryan Sessegnon unavailable for the match later today. That being said, we are the favourites even after taking their absence into consideration.

The hosts have fallen off in terms of their form in the recent fixtures, and we certainly cannot be the one to break that run. After all, they are currently in a five-match losing streak, and we must look to take advantage of that situation at this instant.

It remains to be seen how the players would respond following our setback against Man United. We need to drop a dominant performance to get over our loss and put us in a good position to compete for the top four places in the Premier League. Only time will tell whether we would be the victors or not as we near the kick-off time.
