2 Key Stars Miss Out; Son Leads The Line | Predicted 3-4-1-2 Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Brighton

Tottenham Hotspur faced a daunting challenge in their last match against Manchester City in the Premier League. Next up they have a relatively more straightforward opponent as they take on Brighton and Hove Albion.

Brighton, on the other hand, were held to a 0-0 draw away from their home against Wolves. Though it would be a big ask for them to defeat Tottenham in their next match, it would not be wise to write them off as they can shock even the mightiest of opponents on their day.

Team News

Pochettino has several key players out with injuries, including the likes of Serge Aurier, Harry Winks and Harry Kane. Captain and first choice goalie Hugo Lloris is also injured and would be assessed before the match along with Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko, who are recovering from their own injury concerns.


In the absence of Lloris, Paulo Gazzaniga is expected to start in the goal for Spurs. He had a decent outing against the Citizens in the last match, conceding just the one goal and is expected to do a good job against the Seagulls as well.


The three men backline is expected to consist of Juan Foyth, Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld. This will allow Jan Vertonghen to take a much-needed break ahead of the busy schedule. Foyth and Sanchez looked a little on the backfoot against Manchester City and are expected to dish out a better performance against Brighton.


Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose, who were given a well-deserved break in the last match after the epic loss (win overall) against the Citizens in the Champions League quarter-final second leg match, are expected to start in their familiar positions as the right and left wing-backs respectively.

The duo of Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier would start in the middle of the pitch. Dele Alli is expected to start ahead of them in the attacking midfield position. 


In the absence of Harry Kane; Lucas Moura is expected to lead the line for the north London club. He would be supported by Son Heung-Min, who would start in the attack alongside him. Fernando Llorente would start on the bench.

Predicted Lineup: (3-4-1-2)
