How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Brighton & Hove Albion

Ahead of Saturday's Premier League game between Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur, Sports Mole looks at how the North Londoners could line up against the Seagulls.

Tottenham Hotspur make the trip to face Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend looking to produce a response to their morale-deflating defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Despite holding an early advantage against the Bundesliga champions, Spurs eventually succumbed to a 7-2 setback in front of their own supporters.

With both himself and his players coming under increasing scrutiny, Mauricio Pochettino must find a solution ahead of Saturday's meeting with Brighton in the Premier League.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how the North London outfit may line up for the game at the Amex Stadium.

Doubtful: Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring)

Given the manner of the defeat in midweek, it would come as a surprise if Pochettino does not make widespread changes to his starting lineup.

With Serge Aurier serving a suspension, Kyle Walker-Peters could come in at right-back, while Ben Davies may replace Danny Rose on the opposite flank.

Davinson Sanchez should also replace one of Toby Alderweireld or Jan Vertonghen, providing that Pochettino does not revert to a back three.

Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele may retain their roles in midfield, although Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela will expect to be recalled, potentially in place of Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko.

Lucas Moura will also hope to feature after being provided with just four starts in all competitions this season.
