Jose Mourinho has named his Tottenham Hotspur team which will take to the field against Brighton this afternoon.
Jose Mourinho suffered his second defeat as Spurs manager in the Premier League on Sunday when his former employers Chelsea were comfortable 2-0 winners in North London.
The defeat saw Spurs pass up the opportunity to overtake Chelsea in fourth place in the table and now must try and chip away at their six point advantage.
Brighton are in the midst of a poor run of form with just one win in their last seven matches, which ironically also came in North London at the home of rivals, Arsenal.
Spurs will be looking for Harry Kane to spread some festive cheer, Kane has scored seven goals in just four Premier League games on Boxing Day. In the history of the competition, only Robbie Fowler (9), Alan Shearer (8) and Robbie Keane (8) have scored more on 26th December.
This is who features for Spurs this afternoon.
Tottenham: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Winks, Sissoko, Lucas, Dele, Sessegnon, Kane (C).
Subs: Vorm, Foyth, Tanganga, Dier, Eriksen, Lamela, Lo Celso
? #THFC: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Winks, Sissoko, Lucas, Dele, Sessegnon, Kane (C).
