Brighton and Hove Albion have the honour of starting the Premier League weekend when they play host to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, and they will have three men returning to the squad and another one possibly available, according to their official website.

The Seagulls head into the encounter with last season’s Champions League finalists in need of a victory, something they haven’t enjoyed since the opening weekend of the campaign.

Brighton have played some eye catching and fluent football throughout this term, but ultimately it is a results business, and the Sussex side are in major need of one to take into the international break with them.

Graham Potter will hope his Seagulls side are getting Spurs at the right time, after the Londoners suffered a humiliating defeat in the Champions League in midweek, conceding seven to a fired up Bayern Munich side.

If Brighton are to get the result that they need in this match, they will need to be at their best, and their chances have been boosted by news that three men will all be available for the Amex Stadium outfit.

Solly March, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Leon Balogun have all recovered from injuries which have kept them out of recent times, and they could be joined in the Seagulls’ match day squad by Davy Propper.

The Netherlands international has picked up a hamstring issue, but he is due to be assessed ahead of the clash with Spurs, to see if the Brighton midfielder will be fit to take part.

While much of the team news was positive for the Seagulls, there are still some players who they will have to do without against Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Shane Duffy remains on the sidelines with a calf issue, while the match comes too soon for Brighton pair Bernardo and Leandro Trossard to feature.
