Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton and Hove AlbionFA Cup, KO: 20:00 Feb 5, 2022, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
SPURS host Brighton in an FA Cup tie on Saturday night knowing it's their last chance of silverware in a season that could kindly be called transitional at best.
After yet another frustrating transfer window for the North London club, they did manage to land midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur and forward Dejan Kulusevski, both from Juventus, but offloaded four strikers too. Neither of the new boys are expected to play on Saturday.
Antonio Conte wanted more quality in though and it may take a few windows for him to put his stamp on the famously underachieving club.
One plus though is likely to be the return of Son Hueng-min after a month out through injury and Spurs look a different side when he plays and is on his game.
Brighton will also be boosted by the return of Lewis Dunk, Enock Mwepu and Shane Duffy after injury plus Yves Bissouma returning from the African Cup of Nations. They will check on Alexis Mac Allister's fitness too after he missed Argentina's World Cup qualifers.
Spurs survived a real scare at home in the last round against Morecambe where they needed three goals in the last 16 minutes after going a goal behind.
And Brighton needed extra time to see off West Brom away.
How the bookies view it
Recent head to heads
The sides haven't met yet this season, but Brighton won 1-0 at home in their last meeting a year ago as can be seen below. Spurs won the return fixture 2-1.
Spurs have won the last six meetings between the sides at home and Brighton haven't won away at Tottenham for 41 years.
Players to watch
Tottenham will surely play their strongest team and that means Harry Kane to score will be all the rage at 6/5 with Coral. He's looking for his 20th goal of the season for club and country.
Former Arsenal man Danny Wellbeck came off the bench to rescue a point in Brighton's last match at Leicester City. He's 7/2 to score anytime with bet365.
Anything else catch the eye?
Brighton are world football's draw specialsts. They have drawn 12 of their 22 league games and in their last 19 games, have remarkably shared the spoils in 90 minutes in 14 matches in all competitions!
They are very hard to get the better of and this could easily be another stalemate in 90 minutes.
Spurs have been horribly inconsistent this season and are impossible to trust at odds-on and this could go either way. Brighton games have seen both teams to score in their last six games in a row and 888Sport's 5/6 for that to happen again should cop.
