Spurs - LDWDD -------- Brighton - DWWD

Fifth hosts sixth in an intriguing Premier League encounter on Saturday afternoon, as we Brighton to North London. We were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton on Monday night, while the Seagulls' journey across the South Coast was a worthwhile one, as they eased past Bournemouth 2-0.

There may have been a new name in the dugout, but in many ways, it was the same old Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park, where we set for a routine three points against 10 men when Kane drew first blood from the penalty spot.

By that point, Kane had been struck in the face by Doucaoure - who was sent off for his troubles - but the 10 men of Everton proceeded to dominate our 11 men, who levelled the playing field not long after as substitute Moura was given his marching orders for a crunching challenge on Keane.

However, Keane dusted himself down and took full advantage of our refusal to put pressure on the ball, unleashing a rocket into the far corner to steal a point for Everton and deal yet another blow to our dwindling top-four chances.

A point at Goodison temporarily lifted us back into the Champions League places, but Manchester United's win over Brentford has since pushed us back down to fifth spot - three points adrift of the Red Devils and Newcastle United, both of whom have a game in hand.

A four-game unbeaten run in all tournaments can serve as cause for mild optimism - although three of those contests have ended in draws - but each of our last four Premier League matches at home has ended in victory, and fatigue will be of help rather than hindrance to the hosts here.

While we have possessed our own revered striker for several years now, fans continue to rant and rave about the new kid on the block at Brighton, as Even Ferguson's stock rose further with his cheeky contribution at the Vitality Stadium.

The teenager's elegant backheel put Brighton men in the ascendancy against Bournemouth before he handed the reins over to another up-and-coming striker in Julio Enciso’ who converted his first Brighton goal in added time to keep the Seagulls soaring.

Now basking in the glory of a seven-game unbeaten run in all tournaments, the Seagulls have cemented themselves in sixth place in the Premier League table, and while we hold an unassailable four-point lead over our upcoming opponents right now, Brighton's two games in hand could yet prove pivotal.

Furthermore, De Zerbi's goal-happy crop have gone seven Premier League away games without defeat since losing to Manchester City in October - scoring at least twice in six of those contests - and 28 goals scored in 3pm Saturday kickoffs is the most of any team in the English top flight so far this term.


We first played each other on Saturday 19th November 1977 in a 0 – 0 draw in the old 2nd division at White Hart Lane.
