Tottenham will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they head to Brighton in the Premier League tonight.
Spurs haven’t hit top gear often enough this season.
And while they’ve been able to grind out results, they haven’t won in their last two.
Last weekend’s loss at Arsenal was especially disappointing, while the stalemate against Eintracht Frankfurt saw them spurn numerous good chances.
Tottenham will now face a Seagulls side in great form, one which gave Liverpool a tough game last time out.
And Spurs will likely have to do it without Dejan Kulusevski, who is reportedly still on the sidelines.
This is according to The Athletic, who say the 22-year-old is yet to recover from the hamstring injury he picked up on international duty.
Admittedly, Antonio Conte had previously suggested that Kulusevski was unlikely to feature for the foreseeable future.
He said on Monday: “I hope to recover him quickly.
“But I don’t know if for the next game (Brighton), or for the game in the Champions League against Eintracht Frankfurt at home (on Wednesday).”
Nonetheless, he’ll still be gutted, as Kulusevski has really made a difference for Tottenham.
On the whole, Spurs have generally looked a better outfit with him in the team.
That said, Richarlison has done really well, with five contributions in 10 appearances.
That record is impressive when you consider that Conte took his time to introduce him into the side.
But that just highlights how “sensational” Kulusevski has been since he arrived in January.
