Today's Brighton vs Tottenham live stream has been a long time coming after it was postponed in December due to Covid, but it could have a big impact on the Premier League's European places.
Neither side goes into this game in particularly good form. Brighton have lost their last five games, including a 0-2 defeat to Liverpool at the weekend. Their 0-2 win away at Watford in February now seems a long time ago. However, thanks to their strong start to the season, the Seagulls are still comfortably placed around mid-table, with no risk of relegation and little to play for.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are in a pattern of winning one match and losing the next, typified by following their 5-0 demolition of Everton with a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend. It means their hopes of Champions League football now hang by the thinnest of threads, and a win is essential if they wish to play any kind of European football next season.
Brighton boss Graham Potter confirmed that Adam Lallana is injured once again; he suffered a hamstring injury against Liverpool after being on the pitch for just a few minutes. Defender Adam Webster has also been sidelined in recent weeks after picking up a groin strain against Burnley.
For Tottenham, Oliver Skipp remains unavailable as his injury saga drags on. Manager Antonio Conte gave no update on the midfielder’s possible return during his pre-match press conference, commenting that Skipp is “a player we need, but at this moment no one tried to tell me the moment he is ready.” Left wingback Ryan Sessgenon is also out with a hamstring injury, while defender Japhet Tangaga has been another long-term absentee.
One of the positives for Spurs in their rollercoaster recent few weeks has been the emergence of recent arrivals Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur. The January signings from Juventus are now firmly established first team players and will be important in this game.
The sides played each other in the FA Cup last month, with Tottenham claiming a 3-1 victory. They could face a tougher challenge travelling to the south coast, though — Brighton have won the last two times the teams have met at the Amex Stadium. That said, Spurs have won five of the last eight Premier League matches between the sides.
Here's how they line up:
Brighton: Sanchez, Veltman, Dunk, Duffy, Cucurella, Gross, Bissouma, Mac Allister, March, Maupay, Trossard.
Tottenham: Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies, Doherty, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Reguilon, Kulusevski, Son, Kane.
Can Antonio Conte’s men pick themselves up after yet another defeat? Will the home side rise to the occasion and give their fans something to cheer?
