After a shocking defeat in the Europa League, Tottenham will be looking to recover from their loss this weekend. The side will play host to side Brighton at the New Tottenham Stadium. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 10:15 pm.
Brighton travels with hopes of breaking a four-match winless streak in England’s top flight. The side has registered two losses and two draws since the start of the season. It is a win-win situation for both sides.
The trip to Royal Antwerp came with significant changes to the starting XI as expected. Even the introduction of Gareth Bale to the starting XI could not prevent the shocking defeat on the night for the Chosen One.
A Ben Davies error gave Lior Refaelov a shot on target that ended their trip with a win. The win marked their first defeat on the road since July. Mourinho made four tactical changes to the starting XI by half time.
Their last time out in the Premier League ended in a 1-0 hard-fought win over Burnley. The combination of Heung Son and Hary Kane proved too much superior at Turf Moor to win for Mourinho.
The Seagulls are currently rethinking their fate in the Premier League despite being too soon in the league. In their opening six games of the Premier League, Brighton only has a 3-0 win over Newcastle to prove.
