Spurs v Brighton preview and predictions
Tottenham Hotspur will look to bounce back from their defeat to Chelsea when they host Brighton on Boxing Day.
Spurs vs Brighton
Competition: Premier League
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Date: Thursday, 26 December 2019
Kick-off: 3:30 PM
The Lilywhites fell to a third defeat in five games across all competitions on Sunday, going down 2-0 to an impressive Chelsea side as Jose Mourinho failed to get one over his former player Frank Lampard.
Son Heung-min starts a three-match suspension following his needless red card against Chelsea, and Mourinho is likely to shuffle his team.
Hugo Lloris, Ben Davies and Erik Lamela all remain sidelined.
Predicted XI: Gazzaniga; Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose; Dier, Winks; Sessegnon, Alli, Moura; Kane.
Jose Izquierdo and Solly March remain sidelined for Boxing Day and Potter may be tempted to freshen up his starting XI.
Predicted XI: Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Burn; Mooy, Stephens, Propper; Gross; Maupay, Connolly.
