Following a disappointing result in midweek, Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to bounce back to winning ways when they host Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday. The Lilywhites are still without a win at home this season, securing all of their three victories away from home in the Premier League this term. So Jose Mourinho’s men will be eyeing a welcome three points this weekend.

Mourinho was livid with his side’s performance in the 1-0 defeat to Royal Antwerp. So we might see Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies both removed from the starting lineup, thus paving the way for Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld to return to the setup. These two are set to operate at the heart of Spurs’ four-man backline.

Serge Aurier, on the other hand, could also make way for Matt Doherty at right-back, though Mourinho might refrain from making a similar change on the opposite flank as Sergio Reguilon is a far better option than Davies.

There might not be a change in goal either with Hugo Lloris once again starting ahead of Joe Hart in between the sticks. The Frenchman will be looking for his first clean sheet at home in the Premier League this season.

Changes are in order in midfield as well, with Harry Winks making way for the much more reliable figure of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. The Dane will offer more stability in the middle of the park, especially alongside the dynamic presence of Moussa Sissoko. These two are set to play a key role in Spurs’ second line of press.

Giovani Lo Celso, meanwhile, could settle for a place on the bench following a disappointing display in midweek. Tanguy Ndombele has been in good form and is a favourite to take up the attacking midfield role, ahead of both Lo Celso and Dele Alli.


Lucas Moura made quite an impact after coming on as a substitute against Royal Antwerp. The Brazilian, therefore, is hoping to receive a start at right-wing, ahead of the likes of Erik Lamela, Steven Bergwijn and Gareth Bale, who still lacks fitness and sharpness to become a first-team regular for Spurs at this moment.

Elsewhere, the offensive duo of Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane are guaranteed starters after being rested in the midweek fixture, though both of them did feature as substitutes. They will be looking to continue their remarkable start to the campaign in the Premier League this weekend.
