Predicted Tottenham XI to face Brighton in the Premier League – Bale benched

Tottenham Hotspur face Brighton in the Premier League this evening as they look to bounce back from that bitterly disappointing match against Antwerp in mid-week.

We believe that there will be few survivors from the XI that started in Belgium on Thursday, with Hugo Lloris and Sergio Reguilon being the only two to retain their spots.

Our predicted back four includes Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, and Matt Doherty alongside Sergio Reguilon and ahead of Hugo Lloris.

Both Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Moussa Sissoko return to holding midfield, while Tanguy Ndombele, who was left in London for the trip to Antwerp, also starts.

Heung-min Son and Harry Kane both start and will look to continue their deadly partnership, while Lucas Moura replaces Gareth Bale in the starting XI.

We would not be surprised to see a few youngsters on the bench today as Mourinho may look to punish some of the poor performers from Thursday.
