After Tottenham’s tripleheader with Manchester City, interrupted briefly by a visit from Huddersfield, it’s time to get back to the nitty gritty against Brighton. Chris Houghton’s side are on a horror run and have failed to score in five games. Shots on target are pretty much a rarity as well with none in the last match against Wolves.
