Facing an eighth-placed Brighton should be a cakewalk for Tottenham, who sit three positions above. However, the Seagulls are the giant killers, leaving many reasons for Tottenham to be wary of.
Finally So(n)me good news!
The fans have been waiting for this moment for weeks. The Tottenham captain returns to a much-changed Spurs squad. The captain will finally be training with the January arrivals Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin.
He will also be pairing up with a ‘newer than ever’ Richarlison. The latter stepped up quite stunningly in the absence of his skipper. Ange Postcoglou can now breathe a sigh of relief.
The former Celtic man now has access to a versatile Timo Werner, in-form Richarlison, surprise performer Brennan Johnson and his trusted aid, Dejan Kulusevski. Not to forget the return of another star from injury — James Maddison.
Tottenham will have Maddison and Son together in the squad for the first time since October.
The North London outfits are nothing short of an unmovable threat. Addressing defensive errors is the only thing they need to conquer their opponents for the remainder of the season.
