EPL: Spurs vs Albion

Tottenham unexpectedly lost 0-1 to Antwerp in the second leg of the Europa League midweek.  However, this was an accidental failure.  Coach Jose Mourinho only used the B team in this match, when most of the pillars were allowed to stay in London to rest or to sit on the bench.

In fact, Tottenham was very stable and strong before, with a series of 10 unbeaten matches in all competitions, including 6 wins and 4 draws.  They returned to the Top 4 Premier League race, even only 2 points behind the top.  The defeat of Antwerp did not affect much to Tottenham's morale and situation in the Europa League, with them still taking second place thanks to a 3-0 victory over LASK Linz on the day of departure.

It can be said that Tottenham is even stronger when welcoming Brighton tonight.  As is known, due to a full week's rest, the pillars in the hands of coach Mourinho will play very energetically, from Alderweireld, Dier, Sissoko, Moura to "parallel" Son - Kane.  The duo "opened fire" continuously recently, having scored 20 goals in all competitions this season (10 goals each).  Son is also leading the Premier League scoring list 2020/21, with 8 goals.  , In addition goals to 5 WLife, Kane also has 8 successful assists, occupying the number one passer position in the tournament.  For a long time, people have seen Spurs play so vigorously and destructive.

Therefore, there is no reason for Tottenham not to find the joy of victory when playing Brighton.  Their opponents are just a team that is both weak and on a decline.  Brighton has gone through 5 consecutive wins in all competitions, including 3 defeats and 2 draws.  Currently, they are only ranked 16th on the chart and can completely continue to sink further.

And yet, Brighton is also very afraid to be a guest of Tottenham, with the last 5 trips to Tottenham Hotspur, including 3 games without scoring.

Tonight, coach Mourinho will launch the strongest team for Tottenham.  In addition to most of the pillars are healthy, Rooster also has almost full force, when only young defender Japhet Tanganga is missing due to injury.  Meanwhile, Brighton is not only weaker, but also has to march to London with a chipped squad.  In addition to the sick soldiers Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Florin Andone and Jose Izquierde, Coach Graham Potter did not have the service of top midfielder Lewis Dunk because of a suspension.

Obviously, Brighton could not avoid defeat, even heavy, at Tottenham Hotspur tonight!
