Tottenham Hotspur got off to a great start this Premier League season, winning their first three, but have now lost three straight since that opening run. Spurs have lost their last two league fixtures as well their UEFA Champions League opener against Inter Milan. They now head to the AMEX Stadium badly in need of a win.

Tottenham has faced Brighton & Hove Albion twice before in the Premier League, with Spurs winning 2-0 at home before drawing 1-1 away last season. Let’s take a look at who Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could select in his first team to face the Seagulls.
