With Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side in action at Southampton later today, a win for Spurs would put them six points clear of their bitter foes amid the latter’s miserable form of late.
Indeed, it was Brighton who did Tottenham a favor last week after claiming victory at the Emirates Stadium, ending their own bad run.
Spurs, however, will feel more than confident claiming another three valuable points. Boasting one of the most prolific front threes in Europe as things stand, only title-chasing Liverpool are in better form over the last six games.

Tottenham vs Brighton team news
Spurs suffered a blow after their win over Aston Villa last week with Matt Doherty – who has established himself as a key player under Conte – ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
They are, however, hopeful that Conte will be in the dugout as usual despite testing positive for Covid-19.
Spurs are also without Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga, although Ryan Sessegnon is now back from a hamstring injury.
Brighton, meanwhile, have no new injury concerns and could even welcome influential defender Adam Webster into the starting line-up after being benched for the win at Arsenal.
Shane Duffy and Jakub Moder are still injured, while Steven Alzate is ill.
Tottenham vs Brighton Prediction
It’s just too hard to look past this Spurs attack. In great shape since the beginning of March, they should have enough to explode Brighton.
Tottenham win, 2-0.
