The Premier League pair go head to head for a place in the quarter-finals of the League Cup this evening and the former Birmingham City boss has claimed that his team need to find a way to stop the North London side's "quality".
"Tottenham are a wonderful club that play a fabulous brand of football," said Hughton. "They're in great form and have been finding greater consistency.
"We don't know what side they will put out and they're perhaps in a different place now compared to then. Their season is going well now. They have a lot of quality in the team."
