Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton Match Preview

Tottenham will have deeply unhappy memories of their last match against Brighton – both for the result and a serious injury to their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

At the Amex Stadium on the first Saturday in October, Lloris dislocated his elbow when conceding the first goal, scored by Neal Maupay, of a 3-0 defeat and has not played since.

The latest prognosis on France’s World Cup-winning captain, who has undergone an operation on his elbow, is that he will return to training early in 2020, with Paulo Gazzaniga continuing to deputise for him.

The 3-0 loss on the south coast came just four days after Spurs had been beaten 7-2 at home by Bayern Munich, but manager Mauricio Pochettino lasted another month-and-a-half in his job before being replaced by Jose Mourinho, who sparked an immediate upturn in results.

Spurs will surely be much more competitive in this return match, but they cannot afford to take anything for granted against a Brighton side who have played particularly well in their last two away games, winning at Arsenal and perhaps unlucky to only collect one point at Crystal Palace.

Nevertheless, Tottenham have generally been a more formidable force than those two sides since Mourinho took charge and they are backed to atone for that dismal day in October by winning the reverse fixture with something to spare.
