Tottenham XI vs Brighton: Starting line-ups, confirmed squad news and latest injuries for the Premier League today

Antonio Conte’s starting XI has therefore really chosen itself, as it has done in recent weeks.

Probably the tightest selection call came at right-back, although Matt Doherty has clearly edged out Emerson Royal with his performances over the past few weeks and was chosen again.

Harry Winks, Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn are the other players on the fringes of Conte’s squad, but none have done enough in recent cameos to suggest they are likely to start.

Conte says he is concerned about Skipp’s groin injury and is unsure when the England Under-21 international will be fit again.

“The same players are available for the game against Brighton, the same players who were available with United. No news,” Conte said on Tuesday.

“The Skipp situation is the first time this situation with a player has happened in my direction. I don’t know, I don’t know!

“Of course we need him, but at the moment no one has tried to tell me when he will be ready. Also for the player because at the moment he is really frustrated.

“He’s really young, he’s a very good guy. Being injured, I’m mostly disappointed and frustrated for him with this situation.
