Brighton and Hove Albion will look to end their poor home Premier League form when they entertain Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday night.
The Seagulls were held to a goalless draw by Fulham at the Amex Stadium midweek – the same scoreline as the reverse fixture earlier on in the season – with the stalemate extending Albion’s run without a home league win to 14 matches.
Graham Potter’s side hover just a place above the Premier League relegation zone but did maintain the gap between themselves and the bottom three with the point against Fulham last time out.
Tottenham meanwhile were beaten at home to Liverpool on Thursday night, with the defeat further soured by the loss of Harry Kane to injury.
The Spurs and England captain suffered knocks to both of his ankles and it remains to be seen how long he will be out for.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg rifled in Tottenham’s goal in the 1-3 defeat, but it proved in vain as individual errors cost Mourinho anything from the game – something the manager lamented post-match.
Not only will Spurs be without Harry Kane for the trip to Brighton but Sergio Reguilon too, who is out for a month with injury.
Giovani Lo Celso will also miss out as he continues to recover from a thigh strain, whilst Dele Alli – who is being heavily linked with a move to PSG – will also be absent.
Brighton meanwhile are still without impressive youngster Tariq Lamptey as well as experienced striker Danny Welbeck, with both still a few games away from being ready.
Alireza Jahanbakhsh is also missing due to an ankle injury and is some weeks away from a return.
Brighton v Tottenham is a 7.15pm kick off on Sunday, 31st January.
