The Seagulls host Spurs at their home in this close Premier League matchup before the end of the year.

Brighton and Tottenham are two emerging sides of the English Premier League this season. They have good youth players who give it all on the pitch. Brighton are in the 9th position in the league table and would look to climb up places before the end of the year. While the away side, Tottenham will do their best to finish in top 3 before the year ends. The game will surely be a tightly contested one, as both teams are doing well individually at all levels. Thus, this game will be a spectacle to watch!

Players to watch for

Kaoru Mitoma – Brighton

Mitoma has been a surprise package this season for the Seagulls. He has been one of their top players in a long time and has earned De Zerbi’s trust. He has a dynamic style of play and creates regular opportunities for the main strikers from wings. Mitoma will be the main man for them in this game against Spurs. The opposition defence will need to strategise to keep him quiet in this riveting game.

Dejan Kulusevski – Tottenham

The Swedish winger has been nothing short of impressive in this season. He has the natural ability to convert scoring opportunities with ease. He has been a key component of the team’s attacking lineup and has been a regular starter for Spurs. The fans will have high expectations from him to win this game away from home and climb top in the league.
