Tottenham Hotspur are due to play against Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with the travelling fans desperate to see their side record victory.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side will be looking to rejuvenate themselves following their frustrating start to the season.

Tottenham are already ten points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool and also lost their most recent Champions League encounter 7-2 against Bayern Munich.

Spurs will go into the contest as favourites considering that they have a more established side but the Seagulls could be very competitive especially considering that they will be playing on home turf.

Tottenham will likely have to use Moussa Sissoko as a makeshift right-back, according to a report which was published by Sky Sports.

This is as a result of the suspension of Serge Aurier. The Ivorian international picked up a red-card whilst playing for Spurs against Southampton last weekend.

Tottenham summer signings Giovani Lo Celso (hip injury) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring injury) will be unavailable for the game as they continue to recover.

Spurs can go into the game full of confidence. Brighton have yet to beat them in a Premier League game and Pochettino’s charges won both games between the clubs last season.

The last time that Tottenham lost against Brighton was back in April 1983 when they were beaten 2-1 in a top-flight match. Since then, they have won five and drawn one out of the six games played between the teams in all competitions.

Brighton have only scored two goals during the four Premier League games between the sides and have never led against Spurs during any of those games.
