Tottenham will be up against a familiar face next season when they face Chris Hughton’s newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion.
Huddersfield Town’s draw at Derby County on Monday evening sealed a place in the Premier League for Brighton. Former Spurs player and coach Hughton watched the game with family, friends and colleagues, and made a speech once the Seagulls’ promotion was confirmed.
He said: “I’m just hoping that our first game is here at the Amex [Brighton’s stadium], preferably against Tottenham.”
“And hopefully that will be the winners of the Championship against the winners of the Premier League.”
Here’s hoping, Chris. Here’s hoping. You can watch the full video below.
