Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion

alderweireld

When Tottenham Hotspur hosts Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night, it will be a match where both sides have a lot on the line. Spurs are fighting on for a top four finish, and with that, UCL qualification. The Seagulls are trying to stave off Cardiff City, and keep that last safety position in the table.

That all said, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino could do a fair amount of squad rotation here. Given the lesser quality of this opponent, and the fact that the UEFA Champions League semifinals against Ajax are rapidly approaching, don’t expect Poch to risk any of his hobbled a-team players here. The north London side has a few injury doubts, and there really isn’t ant point in risking them for the midweek clash.

Tottenham vs Brighton Injury Report: Lloris, Sissoko, Kane, Lamela, Propper

Tottenham Hotspur hosts Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night, in a match-up that has substantial significance at both ends of table. Spurs are holding on to third place in the standings, but they have two teams nipping right at their heels (they did have three, but it looks like Manchester United have apparently shut down operations for the rest of the season).

For Brighton, they currently sit in the final safety position, but with Cardiff City just two points behind, it appears the battle to avoid the final relegation slot could go down to the final day.

Last night saw Manchester City win the UCL quarterfinal match, but lose the tie in a game that we’ll never forget. City’s 4-3 win over Tottenham Hotspur ended in a 4-4 draw on aggregate, which Spurs go through to the semifinals.

It was a match so riveting that even neutrals felt their hearts racing, and the rematch kicks off the Premier League weekend. “It was a nice game for everybody — 3-2 after 20 minutes, and in the second half we did everything,” City boss Pep Gaurdiola said in postgame.

The UEFA Champions League final four is now set with Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur meeting in a semifinal tie that features the tournament’s two underdogs. The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium leg is April 30 while the reverse fixture, at Amsterdam Arena, is May 7.

The manner in which Spurs advanced that far is the real story though. The north London side won an instant classic of a game, a second leg of their quarterfinal UCL tie with Manchester City, in a manner that we’ll never forget. And they did it all without injured leading scorer Harry Kane.

Tottenham at Man City Injury Report: Zinchenko, Sissoko, Kane, Winks, Dier, Lamela

MANCHESTER CITY

It was an instant classic, one of the best football games we’ve ever seen, and the good news is the two teams will do it again the day after tomorrow. Tottenham Hotspur fell 4-3 at Manchester City last night, but rode the three away goals, plus VAR overturning a potential injury time “quarterfinal tie winning” goal to move on to the UCL semi-finals, 4-4 on aggregate.

It was a thriller that left even neutrals breathless, and it will be the same two teams at the same venue on Saturday, different competition, as Spurs vs City leads off the Premier League weekend.

It’s a must win for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City tomorrow night; otherwise their UEFA Champions League aspirations, and with it their quadruple hopes, come to an end. City will host Tottenham Hotspur in the second leg of their UCL quarterfinal tie, and they enter the match down 1-0 on aggregate.

Anything less than a victory and City will be ousted from Europe in the same round from which they exited last season. Wednesday’s match is also the first of a double against Spurs this week, with the second clash against the north London side, a Premier League fixture, coming on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Manchester City (UCL)

mauricio pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur really pulled off a stunning result in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal versus Manchester City, as losses for the Sky Blues have been exceedingly rare in 2019. In order to do it again, and advance through to the semifinal round, they will once again need to overcome the odds and projections.

Spurs will be short-handed in this one, but the history of this match-up has been tremendously balanced. In the all-time series, City and Spurs have each won on 61 times, to go along with 35 draws.

Manchester City Starting XI Prediction vs Tottenham Hotspur (UCL Quarterfinal)

Manchester City head home to take on Tottenham Hotspur down 1-0 on aggregate, but with a tremendous advantage when it comes to squad health and fitness. Spurs will head to the City of Manchester Stadium twice this week, and they will do so without some key players available, and question marks surrounding the fitness of the others.

Manchester City are showing no signs of slowing down right now, and here we are, now in mid-April and their quadruple hopes are still very much alive all around.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Huddersfield Town

tottenham hotspur stadium

Tottenham Hotspur have what can be considered “a breather” of sorts when they welcome Huddersfield Town to their new home for a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Sure, it’s a top flight regular season game, so anything can happen, and no one should be taken for granted, but this is also the best chance for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to rotate his squad.

Tottenham beat Manchester City in midweek, but they still have two more meetings against the reigning champions and quadruple contenders within an 11 day span, so they will need to rest some of the starters at some point, and facing the already relegated Terriers provides the perfect opportunity.

Tottenham vs Huddersfield Injury Report: Kane, Alli, Lamela, Dier, Billing, Depoitre

Tottenham Hotspur have opened their new £850 million stadium in style, winning both of the matches that they have played in the new venue thus far. On Saturday they will welcome bottom side Huddersfield Town, and that means there’s a very strong likelihood we’ll see three victories in three tries for Spurs.

Although Tottenham are injury ravaged, they are coming off an emotional high, having just beaten Manchester City at home in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie. As for Huddersfield, they are already regulated, so it will be interesting to see what kind of effort and ambition they bring to this fixture.
