Moura, Lamela And Trippier To Start | 4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup Vs Brighton And Hove

Tottenham Hotspur will look to turn things around in the league against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday following a disappointing 2-1 away defeat at the hands of Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League. Spurs are in dire need of returning to winning ways so Mauricio Pochettino would have a mammoth task in picking the right team who will be capable enough to secure a victory on Saturday.

The Tottenham boss will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might be forced to start Lucas Moura after he was only named on the bench in midweek.

4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton And Hove

Defence

Michel Vorm would play as the goalkeeper once again in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI as the club captain Hugo Lloris is still sidelined due to injury. The Belgian defensive pair of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen is expected to resume their partnership in central defence. Kieran Trippier will return to the Tottenham first-team after missing out on the Champions League loss to Inter Milan and would ply his trade in the right-back position. Ben Davies should also get the nod ahead of Danny Rose to play as the left wing back.

Pochettino’s defenders have come under a lot of scrutiny after they shipped in 6 goals in their last three outings across all competitions. It is their failure to keep clean sheets which have hampered their results over the past few weeks, and now, the club needs to keep things solid at the back if they are to successfully bounce back away at Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.

Midfield

Spurs might start with the midfield duo of Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele who would sit deep and operate in a holding midfield role. The Liverpool players stretched them quite well during Spurs’ last league outing so we can expect Chris Hughton’s side to opt for a similar strategy at the Amex Stadium.

The in-form trio of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura would be unleashed ahead of them as part of the Tottenham midfield. Moura has been in sensational form for Spurs this season. However, he has not found the back of the net in any of Tottenham’s last three matches in all competitions. However, Lamela scored a consolation goal against Liverpool and could be rewarded with a start on Saturday.

Attack

Harry Kane has looked like a shadow of his former self this season, but he should still retain his place up top in Pochettino’s first-team. He has found the back of the net twice in five league matches for the North London outfit so far but is currently not playing at his best. A lot of Spurs supporters would expect the English centre-forward to register his name on the scoresheet if the away side are to come away with a positive result from the Amex Stadium.
