Brighton are eyeing a north London double after last weekend's win at Arsenal as they travel to face Tottenham in the Premier League.

Graham Potter's side snapped a seven-game winless run - which included six defeats in a row - with a 2-1 success at the Emirates Stadium, powered by goals from Leandro Trossard and Enock Mwepu.

The Seagulls also welcomed Adam Webster back from injury as they look to end the season strongly after a dismal run of results has seen them slip down the table over the last few months.

Here's how Brighton could line up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Robert Sanchez (GK) - Produced a vital stop to deny Arsenal a stoppage time equaliser last time out, underlining his importance to Brighton.

Joel Veltman (CB) - Becoming a huge part of this Seagulls side, capable of filling in at either centre-back or as a full-back.

Lewis Dunk (CB) - Heroic performance last time out, throwing himself in front of everything to preserve the victory.

Adam Webster (CB) - Made his return from injury off the bench last weekend in a huge boost for Potter.


2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Pascal Gross (RWB) - The German has the stamina to play in the wing-back role and can move infield when required.

Enock Mwepu (CM) - Produced a man of the match performance at the Emirates Stadium last time out, supplying Trossard before lashing home Brighton's second.

Yves Bissouma (CM) - His athletic qualities will be vital against a Spurs side who like to move the ball quickly.

Moises Caicedo (CM) - Enjoyed a debut to remember at Arsenal last weekend, providing the pull-back for Mwepu's strike.

Marc Cucurella (LWB) - The Spaniard's acceleration will be crucial at both ends of the pitch for the Seagulls.


3. Forwards

Leandro Trossard (ST) - Well-taken goal against Arsenal last weekend, where he was deployed as a left wing-back.

Danny Welbeck (ST) - Not always prolific in front of goal, but he provides an effective press from the front.
