Tottenham Hotspur – Brighton & Hove Albion
Tottenham Hotspur faces Brighton & Hove Albion at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a game from the 7th round of the Premier League.
Tottenham approach this match from 5th place in the Premier League standings. Spurs have 11 points won and they are currently just two points behind the two leaders Everton and Liverpool. Tottenham have lost just once from the beginning of the season and this is a positive thing.
During the week Jose Mourinho’s team had a fixture in Europa League as well, but it didn’t end too well. The English side traveled to Belgium to face Antwerp, but suffered a 0-1 defeat. Jose Mourinho used some key players such as Hugo Lloris, Dele Alli, Gareth Bale and Steven Bergwijn, but despite this Tottenham still lost the match. The Portuguese manager was not happy with the team’s performance because it was a game Spurs could have won. They are a better team than Antwerp – that’s for sure.
The dynamic duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min should return in the starting eleven on Sunday. It’d be curious to see if Gareth Bale gets the starting place as well.
Brighton & Hove Albion are too close to the relegation zone for them to be happy. At this moment the Seagulls are 16th in the standings with 5 points won and a record of one win, two draws and three defeats. This is not the worst possible start of the season for them, but it could’ve been better.
In their last game in the league Brighton & Hove Albion made a second consecutive draw. They face West Browich Albion at home and the game ended 1-1.
