Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion

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.

  1. I can count 9 first-team players in your proposed Spurs side up against Brighton — all except Dier and Gazzaniga. Not much choice but to risk most of them at this stage. I can think of Llorente and a few youth players who should be in the mix though.
