TEAM NEWS

Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris is expected to return against Brighton, having missed Saturday’s defeat at Manchester City with a muscle injury.

But top scorer Harry Kane remains absent with an ankle problem.

Brighton midfielder Davy Propper will be assessed after suffering a hamstring issue at Wolves on Saturday.

Bruno was also withdrawn on Saturday but the captain’s injury is thought to be less serious. Anthony Knockaert serves the last of a three-match ban.

VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino: “It is in our hands to be in the top four and the Champions League next season. Our next two games are decisive, if we can win them, it will depend on us.

“Now it is time to be strong and be competitive for Tuesday and take the three points.”

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton: “We are finding it hard to score. That is the next bit but if we can show that type of determination in all the games, we at least give ourselves a chance.”
