The Title outsiders meet the European outsiders at the Amex Stadium on Thursday night, as Brighton welcome us to the South Coast. The Seagulls were held to a 1-1stalemate by historic rivals Crystal Palace in their last pre-Christmas affair, while we scraped a nervy 2-1 over Everton.

Spurs
The New Year omens are therefore encouraging for us, who welcomed fellow form side Everton to our North London base over the weekend and were on course for an emphatic success courtesy of Richarlison and Son's strikes inside the opening 20 minutes.

However, Everton galvanised troops were not giving up the ghost that easily and reduced the arrears through Gomes but after a late Danjuma effort cannoned off the crossbar and Vicario before bouncing to safety, we triumphant come the full-time whistle.

Postecoglou reserved special praise for number on Vicario as Spurs survived an onslaught of Everton attacks, allowing us to leapfrog faltering champions Manchester City into fourth place in the Premier League table at the time.

Only a revitalised Bournemouth also won their last three top-flight games on the spin before Christmas Day, and we will now endeavour to further consign our November plight to the past by doing something no previous Tottenham team has managed; win three matches in a row against Brighton.

Fourteen months ago, the formerly deadly Son-Kane combination sunk Brighton in a 1-0 win for us, who also prevailed 2-1 on home turf later that year during the ill-fated reign of Stellini, who took the walk of shame in that game alongside De Zerbi following a dugout melee.


Brighton
Those of an Arsenal persuasion are already familiar with late Danny Welbeck headers, having witnessed the England striker come up with a vital injury-time contribution against Leicester City during the Foxes' 2015-16 title-winning campaign, and the 33-year-old repeated the trick at Selhurst Park last week.

The circumstances may not have been as dramatic this time around, but Welbeck's 82nd-minute intervention was pivotal, as an earlier Ayew header put Palace on the cusp of triumphing over their long-time adversaries in the so-called M23 derby before the Brighton man also flaunted his aerial prowess.

Despite representing a marked improvement on their 2-0 loss to Arsenal, where Zerbi admitted his side were simply overwhelmed for 90 minutes, a Selhurst Park point left Brighton ninth in the table on account of a three-game winless run in the division, although they cannot be plunged any further down the rankings before kickoff.

The temporary absence of Europa League football for a couple of months will be an incredibly welcome sight for De Zerbi and his coaching staff, who have only masterminded two Premier League wins from the Seagulls' last 12 matches as they become accustomed to juggling domestic and continental commitments.


The hosts' clean sheet-less run in the division also stands at an alarming 22 matches, and while a seven-game unbeaten home run in the Premier League provides a moderate injection of confidence, they have lost their last three games of the calendar year to London clubs, going down to Arsenal in 2020 and 2022 either side of being beaten by Chelsea in 2021.
