Tottenham Hotspur will be in Premier League action this weekend as they lock horns with Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.
Antonio Conte’s side endured a frustrating draw at Eintracht Frankfurt in their previous Champions League match.
The North London side managed to create several goalscoring opportunities but their forwards’ lack of precision let them down.
Brighton, on the other hand, earned an impressive draw at Liverpool under new boss Roberto De Zerbi in their previous Premier League game.
Leandro Trossard was at his destructive best as the Belgian registered a brilliant hat-trick to earn a share of the spoils for his side.
De Zerbi was confirmed as the Seagulls new head coach last month after Graham Potter left his position to join Chelsea. The Italian boss has made a strong first impression but now faces another tough challenge with Tottenham as their next opponents.
They are currently fourth in the league standings, having won four of their seven matches so far.
Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton lost the home encounter against Tottenham last season in the Premier League. However, the Seagulls took revenge of that loss as they secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Spurs in the reverse fixture in London.
The two teams also met each other in the FA Cup fourth round where Spurs prevailed easily by 3-1.
Antonio Conte’s side were unbeaten in the English top-flight before their trip to Arsenal. However, the Gunners dominated almost the entire game and inflicted a heavy 3-1 defeat on their North London rivals at the Emirates Stadium.
Despite the recent loss, Spurs are still third in the Premier League with 17 points from eight matches so far.
Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski picked up a knock while on international duty. The 22-year-old missed the clashes with Arsenal and Frankfurt and will also sit out the game on Saturday. Lucas Moura is also injured at the moment while Emerson Royal will serve his domestic ban as he received a red card in last weekend’s derby.
As for Brighton, Jakub Moder will be missing due to a long-term knee injury while the availability of Enock Mwepu is also doubtful.

Tottenham Hotspur played well in their previous European match against Frankfurt but were unlucky to come away empty handed from the Deutsche Bank Park encounter. Brighton have also been impressive at the Amex this season but we expect Antonio Conte’s side to pick up full points this Saturday.
