Tottenham Hotspur are playing football again, and this time it’s not against Manchester City. Brighton & Hove Albion visit Spurs’ new stadium for the first time, and both teams really could use a win.
Spurs saw their odds of qualifying for the Champions League next season jump up to 93% on FiveThirtyEight.com, but that’s assuming that they beat the Seagulls today. Thankfully, Spurs have a little bit of wiggle room now thanks to Crystal Palace beating Arsenal and Chelsea drawing Burnley. But they have to take care of business against former Spurs man Chris Hughton’s Brighton, who are just three points out of the relegation zone. It means that they are unlikely to sit deep and frustrate, and that might play into Spurs’ advantage.
Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko are still out, but Eric Dier is back, and Harry Winks is in the frame to play today. Let’s get a win.

Match thread rules:
- The match thread rules are the same as always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you’re here, though, we have a few rules and regulations.
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They’re bad and they get us in trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. Don’t knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you’re frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is verboten. It’s fine to say “wow, that’s a bad call, match official,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton’s Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- NO SPIDERS!!
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Nobody loves a potty mouth. Also, language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
- Have fun, and COYS!
