Brighton continue their FA Cup journey on Saturday night when they travel to Tottenham.

The Seagulls needed extra time to see off West Brom in the previous round, with Neal Maupay scoring the winner in the 98th minute.

Here's the side manager Graham Potter could select.


Brighton predicted lineup vs Tottenham - FA Cup

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Robert Sanchez (GK) - Jason Steele is out injured and Kjell Scherpen has left for Oostende, so first choice Sanchez will continue in goal.

Joel Veltman (RB) - Has been excellent since signing from Ajax in 2020. Can play in a back three or four and will almost certainly feature on the right.

Lewis Dunk (CB) - Has struggled with injuries recently, not playing since early December. Brighton have done well without him though he should come into the starting XI here, especially following Dan Burn's departure to Newcastle.

Adam Webster (CB) - The 27-year-old has been in excellent form recently, particularly impressing in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Marc Cucurella (LB) - The Spaniard has been a busy presence on Brighton's left-hand side since his arrival in the summer, making the position his own.

2. Midfielders

Jakub Moder (CM) - Likes to bomb forward and has been used in a variety of positions this season.

Yves Bissouma (CM) - Was on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations but could slot straight back into the starting XI following his return. His performance in midfield could be key to Brighton's chances in north London.

Adam Lallana (AM) - Knits Brighton's play together nicely. Hasn't got the goal contributions he would have liked since moving to the south coast.

3. Forwards

Neal Maupay

Tariq Lamptey (RW) - Has been deployed in a forward role at points this season. His first and only Albion goal came at Tottenham in 2020.

Neal Maupay (ST) - Brighton's top scorer so far this term with eight goals in all competitions. Scored the winner in Brighton's victory at West Brom in the last round.

Leandro Trossard (LW) - The Belgian is arguably Brighton's biggest creative outlet and loves taking potshots from range. Grabbed the winner the last time the Seagulls played Tottenham over a year ago.
