Potter discusses home form ahead of Tottenham
Graham Potter’s men would narrow the gap to 16th Burnley – who came up short against Chelsea earlier today – with a win, while three points would keep Mourinho’s Spurs in the running for a European spot. With just four victories in their side’s last 11 Premier League showings, however, and with star striker Harry Kane out injured, Tottenham fans should not expect a straightforward night for their players on the south coast. Follow all the action live below:
BRIGHTON 1-0 TOTTENHAM (68’)
Trossard tees up Mac Allister, who fires a shot against Hojbjerg. There are some faint appeals for handball – which are ignored – as the ball rolls through to Lloris.

BRIGHTON 1-0 TOTTENHAM (61’)
Maupay sets Mac Allister away on the left, with Trossard unmarked in the box. The cross is cut out, though, and a really promising move comes to nothing.

Good defending from Davies as Brighton threaten again. The Welshman positions himself well to block Trossard’s cross.

BRIGHTON 1-0 TOTTENHAM (56’)
Close! Spurs make a meal of clearing a Brighton corner, allowing Gross to send the ball back into the box. His cross is flicked towards goal by White and Lloris has to react quickly, diving to his right to deny the defender.

BRIGHTON 1-0 TOTTENHAM (55’)
Important defending from Ndombele as Gross drives into the box and very nearly picks out Maupay in space.

Spurs win their first corner of the game, which is delivered by Bale. Vinicius attacks it at the back post and Sanchez saves with his legs.
