Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to get back to winning ways when they travel to Amex Stadium to encounter Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday night in the Premier League.
Antonio Conte’s side displayed a promising performance against Manchester United last weekend. However, they fall short of the brilliance of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese scored a hat-trick and the game ended in 3-2.
Following this result, Spurs have lost ground for the top-four race as they are currently sitting in 8th in the table with 45 points in 27 games, six points behind the fourth-placed Arsenal, having played an extra game.
On the other hand, Brighton is going through a rough period at the moment, losing their last five consecutive games in the Premier League. After starting the season on a higher note, the Seagulls are currently 13th in the table with 33 points in 28 games.
Meanwhile, this game was initially scheduled back in December. However, the game could not take place at that time due to the Covid-19 outbreak in the Spurs squad. So, this will be their first meeting this season.
