Tottenham travel to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday evening aiming to avoid a fourth straight defeat in all competitions.

With that in mind, Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Hugo Lloris is still absent through injury but Dele Alli has returned to training. However, Pochettino said he wouldn’t put any players at risk during his press conference on Thursday, suggesting Alli isn’t quite ready.

Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld are expected to return to the team after missing the Inter Milan game, while Danny Rose could also come in for Ben Davies.

Eric Dier is surely due a rest, and it would be pleasing to see Victor Wanyama make a rare start.

Christian Eriksen could drop into a deeper role to accommodate more attacking players; the likes of Heung-Min Son, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane may all be needed to break Brighton down.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Brighton – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments.



  1. Right now id move son forward to replace kane with Lucas and lamela behind him ( loads o f pace ) with Ericckson pulling the trigger in terms of passing. Then put sanchez in a three with Wanyama in front of the three

  2. Worm swap with Gazzaniga for god sake.

    I agree I’d play

    Dembele – if he plays like he did against Inter!!!!
    Lamela -left
    Son – centre
    Moura – right

    With the front 3 mixing it up.

    I bet we’d win 3 or 4 nil!!!
