Brighton midfielder Solly March has insisted the Seagulls can beat Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday if they are clinical in the final third.

Tottenham’s loss against Manchester United on Saturday came as a bitter blow to the club’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, which now hangs by a thread.

Antonio Conte’s men need to take all three points at the Amex Stadium tomorrow if they are to keep pace with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United.

Brighton themselves come into tomorrow’s clash in poor form, having fallen to four consecutive losses to Burnley, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Liverpool.

However, March insisted that the Seagulls can take heart from their performance against the Reds and just need to be a bit sharper in front of the goal.

The midfielder also urged his teammates to make it hard for Spurs, admitting that they played into the North Londoners’ hands during their 3-1 loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month.

March told BBC Radio Sussex (12/02/22 14:30 onwards as relayed by The Argus): “If we start how we did against Liverpool and just bit more clinical in the final third and a bit sharper, a bit quicker on our toes, then yeah I think we have a chance to beat them.

“They are on form, and I think the last time we played them, we played into their hands a little bit, and they countered on us quite well. It will come our way if we keep working hard.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Despite Brighton coming into the game on a poor run of form, they can never be underestimated, particularly at home. However, the fact that Graham Potter’s men are not shy of committing bodies forward, will play into our hands, with Son likely to have plenty of space to run in behind the Seagulls backline.
