Tottenham Hotspur team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham Hotspur's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Boxing Day clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to North London on Boxing Day hoping to kick off a bumper day of action by closing the gap on the top four.

Jose Mourinho's side fell to a 2-0 defeat at home to Chelsea in the final Premier League game before Christmas to leave them six points adrift of the Blues in the Champions League race.

Spurs will be favourites to get back on track against a Brighton side with just one win in their last seven league outings, although that victory did come on their last visit to North London as they beat Arsenal.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
