Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a potential boost ahead of their clash against Brighton in two weeks time, with Lewis Dunk suspended from the game after being sent off against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The dust is yet to settle from Tottenham’s collapse against West Ham, with emotions still understandably quite raw after the manner in which the team threw away two points.
However, the players have little time to dwell on the result as games come thick and fast, with the Lilywhites facing six matches over the next three weeks.
The fixture list is not the most intimidating on paper, with Spurs facing two sides in the relegation zone in Burnley and West Brom, as well as Europa League games against LASK, Antwerp, and Ludogorets.
Brighton are arguably the toughest opponent Spurs will come up against in that mini-run, with the Seagulls set to visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, November 1.
Despite finding themselves just outside the relegation zone, Graham Potter’s side have made a decent start to the season, with their results so far not reflecting what the performances have deserved.
However, Brighton will be without their captain, Lewis Dunk as the central defender is set to be suspended for three games after he received a straight red for a late challenge on Gary Cahill in the 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Spurs will be hoping that the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son will be able to fully capitalise on the fact that the Seagulls will be without their top defender.
