Tottenham team news: Predicted Spurs line up vs Brighton – Trippier, Alderweireld to play? | Football | Sport



Tottenham will be keen to put their Champions League woes behind them when they travel to take on Brighton at the AMEX Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs produced a solid performance for most of their clash with Inter Milan, but crumbled in the final few minutes as the hosts scored twice to steal a shock 2-1 win.

Mauricio Pochettino will have been furious with his team’s capitulation after Christian Eriksen’s opener, but wholesale changes are not expected.

The main question marks for the weekend revolve around the fitness of Tottenham defensive duo Toby Alderweireld and Kieran Trippier.

Pochettinho confirmed it was a ‘technical decision’ to leave the pair at home for the trip to Italy, stressing the need to rest players during the season.

Alderweireld and Trippier are both expected to start versus Brighton, with Danny Rose resuming his role at left-back.

Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko continue to be sidelined through injury along with Vincent Janssen, Juan Foyth and No 1 stopper Hugo Lloris.

Michel Vorm will keep his place in the starting XI after a stronger display versus Inter than against Liverpool.

Harry Kane will continue to lead the line for Spurs, with Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min set to start on either side of him.

Son is yet to start for Tottenham since his return from the Asian Games, but he will be keen to rediscover his form in the coming games.

Pochettino will keep the faith in Eric Dier despite the England midfielder facing criticism for his displays in recent weeks.

Predicted Tottenham team to face Brighton

(4-3-3) Vorm; Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Eriksen, Dier, Dembele; Moura, Kane, Son.
