Tottenham will be looking to make it five Premier League wins on the spin when they welcome Brighton to north London.

Spurs moved three points clear of neighbours Arsenal in the top four with a 4-0 thrashing of Aston Villa last time out, with Conte's side having netted 14 times in their last four games. The Italian recently tested positive for Covid-19, but the north London club are hopeful he will be on the touchline in time for Saturday's clash.

Brighton, meanwhile, stunned Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last weekend via goals from Leandro Trossard and Enock Mwepu, recording just their second victory in their last 13 outings.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Tottenham team news

Matt Doherty's season is likely to be over after the Republic of Ireland international sustained a knee injury in Tottenham's 4-0 win over Aston Villa last time out.

The wing-back joins Japhet Tanganga in being ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, while Conte is still optimistic that Oliver Skipp will feature at some point before the end of the season.


Brighton team news

Potter was pleased to hand Moises Caicedo his Premier League bow last weekend, with the 20-year-old impressing in the Seagulls' 2-1 win at Arsenal.

Brighton are relatively healthy on the injury front after the return of Jeremy Sarmiento and Adam Webster, with only Jakub Moder - who was ruled out for the remainder of the season - set to miss this weekend's trip to Spurs.


Tottenham vs Brighton score prediction

You would have been laughed out of the room as early as a couple of months ago if you were to suggest that the loss of Matt Doherty to injury for Spurs would be a significant blow, but here we are.

Still, Spurs are playing with a swagger at the minute which should be too much for a Brighton team who tend to come onto to their opposition.

Conte's front three of Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Dejan Kulusevski are cutting through teams at will, and Potter's men could be their next victim.

Prediction: Tottenham 2-0 Brighton
