Tottenham will be looking to cement their place in the top four with a win over Brighton at the New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this evening.
Mauricio Pochettino is able to recall Hugo Lloris after he missed the defeat at Manchester City with a minor knock so Paolo Gazzaniga drops to the bench. Kieran Trippier also comes back in to the side with Juan Foyth making way and Danny Rose replaces Ben Davies at left-back.
Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen retain their places as Tottenham go with a back four so Davinson Sanchez drops to the bench. Victor Wanyama is recalled in midfield with Eric Dier making way while Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli keep their places in the Spurs starting eleven.
Fernando Llorente leads the line up front in the absence of the injured Harry Kane while Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura offer the Spaniard support in attack. Tottenham are without Erik Lamela due to injury so Vincent Janssen is named among the substitutes against Brighton.
The visitors go with Jurgen Locadia and Florin Andone is attack while Pascal Gross and Yves Bissouma will also be hoping to cause Tottenham some problems going forward.

Lloris (C), Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Lucas, Llorente.
