Tottenham Hotspur travel to Brighton on Tuesday as they continue to hunt for the runners-up spot. Spurs will be desperate to bounce back from the disappointing defeat against champions Manchester City.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team needs just three more wins to confirm qualification for the Champions League and they are expected to give it their all at Brighton.
The French international is the first choice for Pochettino in goal and would be keen to keep a clean sheet at Brighton.
Tripper played in the previous game against Manchester City and is likely to keep his place in the team for Tuesday’s game.
The Colombian defender has been a reliable and solid presence at the back and should continue to feature in the heart of the defence.
A pillar of strength at the back, Vertonghen has been immense this season. The Belgian’s reading of the game and awareness has been top notch, making him an indispensable figure in the side.
The Welshman has been good this season and will start this game as Danny Rose is injured.
Against Brighton, Pochettino is likely to start Wanyama ahead of Dier. While Dier has been a seasoned campaigner, Tuesday’s game calls for Wanyama’s inclusion.
Dembele has been fantastic for the last couple of months. With Wanyama as his partner, the Belgian will enjoy more freedom to venture forward and contribute to attacks.
The Danish playmaker has been in hot form, supplying assists and scoring goals on a regular basis. His vision and guile would be important in his team stealing 3 points from Brighton.
Alli has looked more involved and influential in the last few games. The game at Brighton would offer him the best chance to work his magic.
It was a bad decision by Pochettino to drop him from the starting XI against Manchester City. Son must return to the first-team on Tuesday. He has been one of our bright sparks this season and his non-stop running and work-rate should be one of the keys as Spurs eye a place in the top-four.
Disappointed to not score against Manchester City, Kane will be buoyant and hungry to get on the score-sheet at Brighton to keep competing with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah for the Golden Boot award.
