Spurs must be resolute on the south coast

Brighton & Hove Albion v Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – AMEX Stadium – Sunday 7:15pm – Preview

Tottenham Hotspur head to the south coast with the emphasis firming focused on bouncing back and eradicating defensive errors.

The Lilywhites rearguard were all at sea as Liverpool ended their recent winless run in N17 on Thursday evening. A performance which drew criticism from sections of the Spurs support, questioning their title ambitions.

Certainly, nothing other than three points will do for Jose Mourinho’s men. However, hosts Brighton require points for a different nature as they sit precariously above the dropzone.

“Every game is tricky,” Mourinho told www.tottenhamhotspur.com

“The first can lose at home to the bottom, like it happened on Wednesday night.

“When we went to Sheffield United, I said exactly that, don’t look at them as the bottom of the table, because any team can beat any team, but to win football matches, we cannot make mistakes like we made against Liverpool.”

Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Sergio Reguilon are all out and they are joined by Harry Kane, injured during that defeat to Liverpool.
