PREVIEW: PROPPER TO MISS SPURS TRIP

22 April 2019

Davy Propper picked up an injury against Wolves at Molineux.

Brighton & Hove Albion make their first visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday evening, kick-off 7.45pm, as they look to edge closer to Premier League safety with a positive result against Mauricio Pochettino’s team.

The Seagulls ended a run of four league defeats against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, thanks to a hard-fought performance and goalless draw at Molineux.

Spurs head into the game after back-to-back visits to Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium — the north London club lost on both occasions, but their 4-3 defeat in the UEFA Champions League was enough to see them progress on aggregate.

Tuesday’s game is the first of three consecutive televised matches for the Seagulls — the trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be shown live on Sky Sports, ahead of matches against Newcastle United and Arsenal.

TEAM NEWS

Chris Hughton confirmed that Davy Propper will be unavailable for selection after sustaining a hamstring injury at Molineux on Saturday.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is in contention for a return to the side, but Harry Kane (ankle), Moussa Sissoko (groin), Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier (both hamstring) are all expected to miss out through injury.

FORM

The Seagulls returned to putting points on the board on Saturday afternoon, as they frustrated Wolves at Molineux to claim a much-needed point towards Premier League survival.

Before disappointing defeats to AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff City, Hughton’s side produced an admirable display against Manchester City in an Emirates FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium, but were narrowly beaten 1-0.

Spurs took maximum points from Premier League matches against Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town, but Pochettino’s side were beaten either side of those games by Liverpool and Manchester City.

The north London club secured their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League against Ajax, after a 4-4 away goals victory over Pep Guardiola’s reigning Premier League champions.

LAST TIME WE MET

Goals either side of half-time from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela gave Spurs a 2-0 lead when they visited the Amex Stadium back in September.

Anthony Knockaert pulled a goal back in stoppage time, and the Frenchman almost levelled the game in the dying seconds, but Paulo Gazzaniga denied the Albion winger to secure maximum points.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Heung-min Son

The South Korean has reached the 20-goal mark for the second time in his Tottenham career, following 12 goals in the Premier League, four in the Champions League, three in the Carabao Cup and one in the Emirates FA Cup.

In the absence of top goalscorer Harry Kane, Son has stepped up for the north London club to provide the goals to help their challenge for Champions League success and a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old will be suspended for their Champions League semi-final first leg against Ajax, therefore Pochettino will be keen to make the most of Son in their upcoming league matches, starting with Tuesday’s game against the Seagulls.

REPORT: GUTSY ALBION EDGED OUT BY TOTTENHAM

  • Albion are beaten 1-0 by Tottenham Hotspur
  • Christian Eriksen scores the winning goal
  • Albion remain three points clear of the relegation zone with three games left
  • The Seagulls are next in action at home to Newcastle United on Saturday

Brighton & Hove Albion fell to a cruel 1-0 defeat against Spurs, as Christian Eriksen’s 88th-minute strike claimed a narrow win for the hosts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Dane’s strike in the final minutes of normal time gave the north Londoners a slender victory over a Seagulls side that put in a gutsy display against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Chris Hughton made six changes to the team that drew 0-0 with Wolves on Saturday, as Albion faced their second match in the space of four days.

Spurs created their first chance of note when Eriksen took aim from distance and his shot bounced in front of Dele Alli before going wide.

Albion worked their first opening when Pascal Gross played an enticing free kick into the box, and Victor Wanyama’s clearance sailed over the crossbar.

Eriksen was involved in the thick of the action down the other end when his free kick caused a scramble inside the Albion penalty area; Jan Vertonghen’s effort was blocked by Lewis Dunk, before Maty Ryan clawed the ball away from Wanyama, allowing Bernardo to clear the danger.

Bernardo was called into action again moments later, as the Brazilian made a fine block to deny his compatriot Lucas Moura after Heung-Min Son caught out the Albion defence with a short free kick.

Hughton’s men continued to defend resolutely, as Dunk produced a brilliant sliding clearance to keep out Moura’s angled strike after the Brazilian was teed up by Eriksen.

Andone had an opportunity to give Albion the lead, after the Romanian made a surging run down the pitch only to be thwarted at the last moment inside the box.

The Seagulls frontman was then almost picked out by Alireza Jahanbakhsh inside the box, but the former’s cross was just too strong.

Gross Spurs.jpg

Alli almost broke the deadlock for Spurs in first-half stoppage time when he brought the ball down inside the box, but was denied thanks to some superb defensive team work from Shane Duffy and Maty Ryan.

Duffy could have broken the deadlock soon after the re-start, as the Irishman ghosted in at the far post to meet a Gross cross, but the defender headed straight at Hugo Lloris.

Spurs were kept at arm’s length by a defensively disciplined Seagulls backline, with the hosts largely reduced to efforts from distance by Wanyama, Eriksen and Son.

One of those long-range efforts almost did the trick for Spurs, as Danny Rose’s fierce left-footed strike was palmed into the air by Ryan before the Seagulls shot-stopper claimed the ball at the second attempt.

Dunk marshalled the defence excellently on the night and threw his body to the ground to block Son’s effort, with Tottenham continuing to pepper the ball around Albion’s box.

Toby Alderweireld was next to come close after being allowed to take a touch and turn inside the area, and his shot clipped off the inside of the post before rolling across the goal line and going behind.

Chances were few and far between for the Seagulls, as second-half substitute Glenn Murray tried his luck with a speculative shot from distance that sailed high over the bar.

The hosts pressed forward once again and Ryan pushed away Eriksen’s strike from distance before Dunk brilliantly cleared away the loose ball.

But just when Albion thought they would hold on for a precious point, Eriksen provided a sucker punch in the closing stages, as his left-footed strike from distance beat Ryan at his near post.

Albion now turn their attention to Saturday's match against Newcastle United at the Amex Stadium.

ALBION: Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo; Stephens, Bissouma (Kayal 86), Gross; Jahanbakhsh (March 73), Andone (Murray 64), Locadia.

SUBS NOT USED: Button (GK), Bong, Balogun, Burn.
