Tottenham will be keen to continue their charge for Champions League football next season as they host Brighton in the Premier League.

Antonio Conte's men could move six points clear of Arsenal in fourth place before the Gunners travel to Southampton on Saturday afternoon, with the Italian hopeful of being on the touchline for the visit of the Seagulls after recently testing positive for Covid-19.

Spurs have hit the goal trail in recent weeks, netting 14 goals in their last four outings in the league, and they appear to be hitting form at exactly the right time in the race for the top four.

Here's how they could line up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Came up huge for Spurs in the first half at Villa Park last weekend as Steven Gerrard's side poured forward at will.

Cristian Romero (CB) - Developing into a hugely dependable player under Conte after experiencing injury problems in the first half of the campaign.

Eric Dier (CB) - Looks assured at the heart of Spurs' defence, with an England recall surely on the horizon.

Ben Davies (CB) - His ability to thread passes into the forward line makes him such a huge asset for Tottenham in defence.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Emerson Royal (RWB) - Struggled hugely since arriving in the Premier League, but he has looked more assured in recent games.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Forming a formidable axis with Bentancur, with his stamina proving incredibly valuable in midfield under Conte.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) - Has proven a shrewd addition from Juventus, capable of playing the right passes when required for Spurs.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) - The Spaniard will be relishing a run of consistent games in the absence of Doherty.

3. Forwards

Dejan Kulusevski (RW) - Added another assist to his collection against Aston Villa, having laid on six of them in just 11 appearances for Spurs.

Harry Kane (ST) - Not on the scoresheet last time out, but his pair of assists typifies his selfless role.

Heung-min Son (LW) - His hat-trick at Villa Park last weekend took his tally in the league this season to 17.
