Tottenham Hotspur will be travelling to Falmer Stadium for their Premier League fixture against Brighton And Hove Albion on Tuesday evening. The Spurs are coming off their 6th loss in their Premier League campaign against Manchester City and are secured in the top-four by 7 points. Chelsea are more than capable of bridging the gap if Mauricio Pochettino’s men start slipping in the final stage of the season in usual fashion.

They were expected to take advantage of a low morale City squad (who had lost 3 games within a span of a week) but instead was at the bitter end of another 1-3 thrashing right at their home turf. Pep Guardiola’s men got the double by winning the previous tie 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

The 34th Premier League game week comes at the time when both clubs can get pulled into potential danger positions with a loss on the night. Brighton are in a similar position as the Mauricio Pochettino’s side but on the other side of the spectrum.

The Seagulls are in the 13th spot of the points table and are also 7 points clear of the relegation zone. While surviving a season in the top-division looks favourable, anything can happen in the final stretch of the season.

Albion’s impressive earlier in the 2017/18 season have saved them from a spear drop to the bottom three positions of the league. They have lost 4 of their last 5 league fixtures and are coming off a 3-2 defeat to relegation rivals, Crystal Palace. Roy Hodgson’s men earned themselves a fighting chance by building on their 2-goal lead in the first half.

Pochettino will have to register three easy points in order to keep the team’s spirits high before the FA Cup semi-final draw against Manchester United.

Here is how Tottenham might lineup on this particular game week.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Defence

Hugo Lloris is expected to start as usual in between the sticks.

He should find himself behind the defensive quartet of Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Ben Davies.

Kevin Trippier might be given a breather in anticipation of the weekend fixture while Danny Rose has still not been ruled fit for this tie.

Midfield

Victor Wanyama and Moussa Dembele are the predicted starters in the holding midfield role. Erik Lamela might appear ahead of the duo in the attacking midfield role.

The flanks might feature Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son.

Attack

Harry Kane will be starting in the number nine role and look to improve upon his chances of winning the Golden Boot.
