Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspurs are set to host Brighton & Hove Albion on Thursday, 26th december 2019 (the boxing day premier league action). This game will kickoff the boxing day proceedings and Mourinho will be hoping his side can start quick off the mark after that 2-0 defeat in the hands of london rivals Chelsea last weekend.
Tottenham vs Brighton & Hove Albion Preview: Spurs lost 2-0 at home against Chelsea last weekend thanks to goals from Willian either side of the break. Mourinho was left frustrated by individual mistakes at the back and Tottenham’s failure to take their chances. Brighton on the other hand lost 1-0 against Sheffield United at home.
Team News and Lineups: Tottenham’s home form has been pretty decent this season where they won 5 of their 9 games so far while Brighton’s have only won twice away from home which goes to show how big a task is this for Brighton to get a positive results. Mourinho is likely to make couple of changes in the starting lineup with Son suspended (red card) we might see Lucas Moura, Eriksen and Delle Alli starting in attacking roles behind Harry Kane. While Dier and Sissoko to start in holding roles.
Predictions: Tottenham’s should cruise to victory in this one as far as form and quality of players available at disposal for both teams are concerned. However Premier League’s been unpredictable and I can see Brighton putting up a fight. However with Harry Kane upfront all Spurs need is couple of half chances.
