Picking the Best Potential Brighton Lineup to Face Tottenham on Wednesday

Brighton will make their first appearance at the new Wembley on Wednesday night when they face Tottenham. The Seagulls' last trip to the national stadium was in 1991 when they lost a Second Division Play-Off Final to Notts County.


Manger Chris Hughton faces the club he spent 13 years at as a player and had two spells as a caretaker manager. His ​Brighton side are without a win in five having lost 2-0 to ​Huddersfield on Saturday.​


Here is the potential Brighton starting line-up.

Goalkeeper

​Brighton's defence is expected to be unchanged from the Huddersfield game with Markus Suttner keeping his place ahead of Gaëtan Bong. 


Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy will be hoping to nullify ​Tottenham's attacking threat while Bruno is set for his 200th appearance in a Brighton shirt since he arrived at the club in 2012.

Midfield

  • March

  • Stephens

  • Izquierdo

There was a surprise selection of Ezequiel Schelotto at Huddersfield on Saturday but he only lasted 45 minutes replaced by Solly March, who could well start at Wembley. 


Dale Stephens​ and Davy Pröpper have formed a good partnership in central midfield while Jose Izquierdo is set to come back into the side. Anthony Knockaert was left out of the matchday squad at the weekend for "tactical reasons" and could miss out again.

​Top scorer Glenn Murray will once again lead the line for Brighton but the striker will have to be careful as he is only one booking away from a one match suspension. 


Murray may have a new partner for this match with 15-goal striker from last season Tomer Hemed in line to replace Pascal Gross.
