Home   /   Preview: Brighton vs Spurs

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham side will look to bounce back at The Amex as their erratic form continued with a defeat at the hands of a Cristiano Ronaldo masterclass last time out.

Three points will be essential if Spurs are to maintain any realistic hopes of Champions League qualification. 

Talisman Harry Kane appears to be returning to the elite levels that we have come to expect in recent years, as he equalled Wayne Rooney’s Premier League away goals record at Old Trafford.

“I think for sure we are having good performances but at the same time, not always we match a good performance with a good result,” Conte told Spurs TV.

Spurs have no new injury concerns ahead of this rearranged fixture which was originally due to take place in December but was postponed due to Covid. 

The hosts come into the game off the back of five straight defeats having not picked up any points since an away win at Vicarage Road over a month ago.

In an admittedly tough set of fixtures, Graham Potter’s side have failed to replicate the early season successes much to the frustration of certain sectors of the Seagull’s fanbase.

“We’re disappointed with the result, not so much the performance.” Potter said after defeat to Liverpool at the weekend.

Adam Webster remains unavailable and Adam Lallana is a late doubt for Albion who have a good record against Spurs at home in recent times. A win will take Potter’s men up to tenth in the table.
