Tottenham v Brighton

Tottenham were pretty lethargic during Sunday’s 2-0 home defeat to Chelsea and Jose Mourinho will be demanding a response.

888sport pre-match odds: Spurs 8/15; Draw 7/2; Brighton 24/5

They are 8/15 shots to see off a Brighton side who have won just eight points on their travels but Albion did win the reverse fixture convincingly, running out 3-0 victors at the Amex in October.

Another piece of history is eyecatching – Spurs are unbeaten in their last 13 Boxing Day games while Brighton have failed to win in their last 10.

Spurs look set to be without Son Heung-min – at time of writing they were appealing his red card v Chelsea but hardly seem likely to succeed – but the good news is that Erik Lamela is back in training and he should feature over the festive period.

It’s hard to be too enthusiastic about backing Spurs given what we saw on Sunday, but equally Brighton’s away form, which has seen them concede 15 goals in nine away games, is hardly cause for great optimism that they can land a 19/4 upset.

Instead it looks worth taking a punt on a fairly clean game.

The lunchtime Boxing Day slot is one you could easily see a lack of intensity both on and off the pitch and with the lenient referee Graham Scott in charge, going low on cards looks a good option.

Only three teams have collected fewer yellow cards than Brighton in this season’s Premier League and while Spurs are towards the other end of that particular list, there must be a chance they are urged to calm down after getting involved with Chelsea in feisty fashion.

Scott has already taken charge of one Premier League game featuring no cards this season; last season he managed a league-high three.

14/1 about another is worth a try.

Son suspended for Brighton visit as Spurs fail with appeal against red card

Tottenham will be without the suspended Son Heung-min for the Boxing Day clash with Brighton.

Son was shown a straight red card in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea and Spurs failed in their appeal so he begins a three-match ban.

Erik Lamela (hamstring) is back in training but will not feature, with Ben Davies (ankle) and Hugo Lloris (elbow) also out.

Brighton boss Graham Potter has no fresh injuries to report for the trip to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Colombia winger Jose Izquierdo has not played for the Seagulls since April and continues to recover from a knee injury.

Midfielder Solly March is still healing after undergoing groin surgery earlier in the month and will miss the entire festive schedule.

Tottenham provisional squad: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertongen, Rose, Winks, Dier, Ndombele, Sissoko, Skipp, Eriksen, Lo Celso, Sessegnon, Moura, Dele, Kane, Parrott

Brighton provisional squad: Ryan, Dunk, Webster, Burn, Stephens, Bissouma, Mooy, Propper, Alzate, Trossard, Gross, Maupay, Button, Duffy, Montoya, Bernardo, Jahanbakhsh, Murray, Connolly.

    Tottenham 2-1 Brighton - Match Highlights

    Date published: 12/27/2019 10:17:22 AM

    Dele Alli scored a brilliant winner as Tottenham came from behind to beat Brighton 2-1.

    Spurs started the match well and Ryan Sessegnon, who was making his first Premier League start for the club, hit the post in the opening minutes after latching on to Toby Alderweireld’s long ball forward, although the linesman’s flag was already raised for offside.

    When Brighton responded, Steven Alzate’s ambitious long-range effort was gathered by Paulo Gazzaniga in the Spurs goal before Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy’s left-footed drive flew narrowly wide.

    Jose Mourinho’s team thought they had taken the lead in the 24th minute when Harry Kane slotted the ball past Mat Ryan after being played in by Harry Winks, only for VAR to rule the England striker was just offside.

    Eight minutes before the interval the Seagulls stunned their hosts when they took the lead, with Adam Webster heading Pascal Gross’ excellent free-kick past Gazzaniga.

    Brighton held the lead at half-time and Graham Potter’s side should have doubled it soon after the restart when Aaron Connolly contrived to send his close-range header over the bar when it seemed easier to score.

    The visitors were made to rue that miss in the 53rd minute when Kane made no mistake at the second attempt after Ryan had saved his initial effort.

    Gazzaniga was forced to punch Gross’ free-kick away from danger as both teams pressed for a winner but it was Spurs who scored it when Alli finished off a sweet 72nd-minute move with a sublime goal.

    The victory keeps Spurs in the race for fourth place, while Brighton reach the halfway point of the season in mid-table.
