Tottenham vs Brighton team news: Seven players ruled out and three doubts ahead of Premier League clash

Tottenham injury news ahead of their Premier League clash against Brighton this weekend.

Tottenham will look to return to winning ways and get back into the top four of the Premier League table when they host Brighton and Hove Albion in north London this weekend. 

The Lilywhites suffered a setback at Goodison after drawing 2-2 with Everton, twice they took the lead, dropped off and ended up picking up only a point. Aston Villa took advantage of their loss and pushed them out of the top four. 

Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou admitted after the game his team didn't handle the second half of their game well but has been boosted by the return of Yves Bissouma and Son Heung-min, both back to Hotspur Way after Mali and South Korea crashed out of the AFCON and Asian Cup respectively. 

The duo add to Pape Matar Sarr who played his first game since returning from the AFCON last weekend, so the Lilywhites will have a strong bench even though they still have some injury concerns. 

Brighton returned to winning ways against Crystal Palace last weekend and manager Roberto De Zerbi will hope that his team now go on a run after what has been a very disjointed league campaign so far. 

Both teams play beautiful football and have skill, stamina and strategy which makes the weekend's clash pulsating and interesting for all. So ahead of the game, this is an early look at the news for both outfits.
