Yet again as they have done for five of their six premier league games, Harry Kane and Heung Min Son combined to beat Burnley at Turf Moor, they will look to do it again when Brighton visits.
Spurs are on the rise and there’s certainly no stopping them as it stands, critics will definitely point to their capitulation at home against Westham, where they led 3-0 in the opening stages and lost the advantage to draw 3-3 in the last ten minutes.
In the win over Burnley, we saw a classic Jose Mourinho side, getting behind the ball when opponents have the ball and spreading quickly when in possession. It wasn’t particularly pretty but it was three points forward especially with rivals dropping points here and there.
Brighton on their parts are basically just doing all they can to stay in the league, they can be fierce, stubborn and disciplined but their finishing leaves so much to be desired, they have been unlucky in some instances and they have being their own undoing on other days too.
Brighton were largely predicted to beat Westbrom last weekend but they conceded a late free kick that led to Grant’s equalizer, they missed loads of chances in the game and could well have lost it with the Baggies growing into the game.
Spurs will have to be wary of Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay, there’s an honorary mention for Adam Lallana too who will be pulling the strings in the middle of the pack but Moussa Sissoko and Harry winks should nullify him cleanly, but who will nullify Tanguy Ndombele when he goes into his element?
Harry Kane and Heung Min Son will be willing to grab the headlines again, Kane is not afraid to drop deep and allow the Korean to maraud up field, and is it time for Gareth Bale to announce himself for the second time in North London?
