Tottenham Hotspur will entertain Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon in a crucial Premier League encounter.
Antonio Conte’s side are currently enjoying a great spell this season, winning five games in the last six league encounters. Spurs will be coming into this game after a brilliant victory against Aston Villa last weekend. The Lillywhites won the game by 4-0 courtesy of a hat-trick from Son Heung-Min and another one was scored by Dejan Kulusevski.
On the other hand, the Seagulls will be approaching this following a great victory against Arsenal last Saturday. Graham Potter’s side defeated the Gunners by 2-1 and it was their first win in the last seven games.
Meanwhile, these two sides have already faced each other twice this season, once in the league and another one in the F.A Cup. And on both occasions, the North London club came out on top. So, the Seagulls will be looking to break their duck against Tottenham this season and win back-to-back games against the North London giants.
Spurs are currently sitting fourth in the league with 57 points in 31 games, three points ahead of the fifth-placed Arsenal, having played one extra game. On the other hand, Brighton are 11th in the league with 37 points in 31 games.
