Lucas Moura has been of great support to the team who has 75.2% success in passes, 1 shot per game and has won 1 aerial per match.
The Brighton and Hove's attack has improved several folds with the youngster Neal Maupay scoring regularly for the team. The last year highest goal-scorer for the club has 4 goals and an assist in last 8 outings. He has 3.2 shots per game and a passing percentage of 78.4%.
He will be accompanied by Leandro Trossard who was unlucky to not get on the board against West Brom. The 25-year old has a goal and an assist in 6 appearances. He has enjoyed 2 shots on target, 1.3 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per game.
Aaron Connolly is a great in holding on to the ball but has failed to convert that into goals. He has one goal and an assist along with 73.6% pass success, 0.5 aerials won and 1.6 shots per target per game until now.

He will be supported by Eric Dier who is a very good blocker and can counter attack. He has 90% success while passing and is great in aerial duels winning 3.4 per match along with 4 clears and 0.9 interceptions per game.
Doherty and Davies who usually play the left and the right center back will have to make sure that they support the other two by clearing getting rid of the balls and not letting the opposition get to the penalty box. For Brighton, the defense will have to play out of their skins to stop Spurs from scoring.
The dutch defender Joel Veltman has 82.4% success in passes and is great in aerial duels winning 1.6 per match but will have to counter attack against a top side. Adam Webster will join at one of the extremes of the backlines who is decent in interceptions but often fails while tackling. He has 80% pass success, 1.7 aerials won per match, 1.2 tackles and 1.8 clears per match this season.
The England defender Dan Burn will have to do a better job along with his experienced teammates to minimize scoring options for the opponents.
