Tottenham Hotspur are now in pole position to secure fourth place in the Premier League this season and they can solidify their grip on last place in the Champions League with a win over Brighton on Saturday.
The Seagulls helped Spurs last week as they beat their north London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are hoping for another favor here.
However, as the game against Arsenal showed, Brighton are no slouches, but having scored nine goals in their last two games, Spurs are coming into this one hot game.
With that in mind, we tried to predict Spurs’ starting XI for this game.
We believe Antonio Conte will make only one change from the team that dismantled Aston Villa last week.
Unfortunately, Matt Doherty’s injury will reportedly side him for the season, but after coming on from the bench last week, Sergio Reguilon should be fit enough to start here.
The rest of the squad is pretty much the squad we’ve gotten used to over the past few weeks.
January’s signings Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur both start, while last week’s hat-trick hero Heung-Min Son is in the top three alongside Harry Kane as the South Korean continues to hunt Mohamed Salah at the top of the scorer list the Premier League makes .
A win here would be huge for Spurs’ hopes of playing in the Champions League next season and, of course, three points from the early kick-off would increase the pressure on Arsenal, who play Southampton later in the day.
