PREVIEW: ALBION V TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

20 September 2018

Linton Rogers
Albion host Tottenham Hotspur at the Amex Stadium this weekend.

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Amex Stadium on Saturday evening, as they look to continue their unbeaten league start at home in front of the BT Sport cameras, kick-off 5.30pm.

The Seagulls have recovered from being two goals down in consecutive games against Fulham and Southampton, and Chris Hughton’s team will be looking to record their second victory of the campaign this weekend.

Spurs head into the game on the back of three consecutive defeats across the Premier League and Champions League, but the north London club occupy sixth position in the league ahead of Saturday’s fixtures.

It will be the third time Tottenham have visited the Amex, having played the first-ever game against Albion at the club's new stadium back in 2011, before last season’s 1-1 draw in the Premier League.

TEAM NEWS:

Hughton confirmed that Pascal Gross remains injured and will miss out again, however Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo are both training and could come into contention at the Amex.

Spurs duo Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli (both hamstring) have both returned to training and are expected to be fit for Saturday’s meeting on the south coast, but goalkeeper Hugo Lloris continues his rehabilitation.
 

FORM:

The Seagulls bounced back from an opening-day defeat against Watford with an impressive 3-2 victory over Manchester United at the Amex Stadium.

Hughton’s side came close to snatching a point against Liverpool at Anfield but were undone by Mohammed Salah’s first-half strike, which came before a narrow home defeat to Southampton in the Carabao Cup.

Two second-half strikes from Glenn Murray overturned a 2-0 deficit when Fulham visited the Amex earlier this month, and the Albion forward then fired home from the penalty spot to complete another turnaround at St Mary’s.

Southampton put themselves 2-0 ahead after goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Danny Ings, but Shane Duffy halved the deficit before Murray’s 90th-minute spot kick.

Spurs opened the season with three consecutive victories in the Premier League, but have since lost a hat-trick of matches, with their most recent defeat coming against Inter Milan at the San Siro.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team moved to nine points after three league matches with victories over Newcastle United, Fulham and Manchester United - the last of which was an eye-catching 3-0 win at Old Trafford.

But defeats to Watford and Liverpool have followed, before Tuesday evening’s 2-1 defeat in Italy, which saw the Serie A side overturn a one-goal deficit in the closing stages.

LAST TIME WE MET:

Without a victory in four league matches and looking to edge their way towards Premier League safety, Albion welcomed Tottenham to the Amex in April and the north London club had Champions League qualification in their sights.

Harry Kane broke the deadlock for the visitors three minutes after half-time, but the Seagulls reacted within minutes of going behind, after Serge Aurier brought down Jose Izquierdo inside the 18-yard box.

Pascal Gross took responsibility from the penalty spot and fired past Hugo Lloris to earn a share of the spoils for Hughton’s hard-working side.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Harry Kane

Despite making a relatively slow start to the season, the 25-year-old has two goals in five Premier League matches and will be looking to add to his 110 top-flight goals, which have been scored across 158 matches.

Kane found the back of the net against the Seagulls at the Amex last season, as he fired 43 goals across all competitions for Pochettino’s team, including seven goals in seven Champions League matches.

The forward also scored six goals at this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia, which secured the Golden Boot award as England reached the semi-finals of the tournament.

Brighton & Hove Albion succumbed to their third league defeat of the season after being beaten 2-1 by Tottenham Hotspur.

Harry Kane’s first-half penalty and Erik Lamela’s strike after the break put the visitors two goals ahead, before Anthony Knockaert halved the deficit in the dying stages of the game.

Chris Hughton kept the same side that drew 2-2 with Southampton on Monday, while Florin Andone took his place on the bench for the first time this season.

Albion struggled to gain a foothold in the game during the opening stages, with Tottenham enjoying the majority of possession.

The visitors created their first chance when Toby Alderweireld attacked a corner and saw his deflected header saved brilliantly by Maty Ryan, before Davy Propper did enough to deter Jan Veronghen with his chance on the follow-up.

Down the other end, Knockaert drifted a deep free-kick towards Lewis Dunk, but the defender’s shot went past the far post.

The Frenchman then showed a brilliant piece of skill to bamboozle Lucas Moura, before being brought down by Danny Rose on the right-hand side. But the winger’s subsequent set-piece failed to find an Albion player in the Spurs box.

The Seagulls defence had to be alert to deal with the pace of Tottenham’s attacks, as Son Heung-Min’s close-range header from Kane’s cross was deflected over the bar.

Albion were dealt a blow when Dale Stephens was forced off injured following a coming-together with Moura, and was replaced by Beram Kayal.

Spurs were awarded a penalty after Glenn Murray was penalised for handball from Kieran Trippier’s free-kick, and Kane clinically dispatched the spot kick in the 42nd minute.

Albion came out of the traps quickly after the re-start and Knockaert cut inside from the right, but his resulting cross narrowly failed to find Solly March.

The latter was involved in the thick of the action again moments later after being brought down by Trippier, but Knockaert’s resulting set-piece delivery was headed over by Vertonghen.

Tottenham’s pace on the ball continued to cause Hughton’s men problems, as Christian Eriksen fired wide with a curling effort after being teed up by Moura on the edge of the area.

March was next to come close after latching onto Mousa Dembele’s short clearance, and the winger’s effort took a nick off Son before landing on the roof of the net.

Albion continued to press and Kayal managed to tee up Knockaert in the box, but the Frenchman took a touch and saw his close-range shot go straight at Paulo Gazzaniga in the Spurs goal.

Another chance went begging went Dunk won a tussle with Eric Dier in the box after meeting March’s corner, only for the centre-back to head over the bar.

But despite Albion’s much-improved second-half display, Pochettino’s men doubled their advantage through substitute Lamela, who fired home from Rose’s cross with 76 minutes on the clock.

The game headed into the closing stages and Knockaert handed Albion a late lifeline, as he broke forward and curled the ball into the far corner to make it 2-1 three minutes into stoppage time.

The Frenchman had another opportunity moments later, but Gazzaniga was equal to his effort, and the visitors held on for all three points on the south coast.

Albion will now turn their attentions to next week’s trip to the Etihad Stadium for a match against reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

ALBION: Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Knockaert, Stephens (Kayal 21), Propper, March (Jahanbakhsh73) ; Bissouma (Locadia 79); Murray.

SUBS NOT USED: Button (GK), Balogun, Bernardo, Andone.
