Tuesday evening’s Premier League action comes from the Amex Stadium where Brighton and Hove Albion take on Tottenham Hotspur.

The Seagulls have taken just one point from the last twelve available to them in the league, though a return to winning ways here would see them move ten points clear of the relegation zone with just four games to play.

However their run in is arguably the toughest of all of the sides still in danger of dropping down to the Championship with a trip to Burnley following this game before clashes with Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Davy Propper once again misses out through suspension with long term absentees Izzy Brown and Steve Sidwell also unavailable.

Glenn Murray is priced at 8.5 (15/2) to open the scoring with Betfred with Pascal Gross a 13.0 (12/1) chance with most firms.

The home win is widely available at 7.0 (6/1) with the visitors favourites at 1.5 (1/2) with several bookmakers. The draw can be backed at 4.55 (39/11) with Unibet.

Spurs lost for only the second time in the league since the end of November last time out – with both of those defeats coming to champions Manchester City.

Victory here would see them move level on points with third place Liverpool and to within a point of Manchester United, who’s surprise defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon saw the title decided.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to rotate his squad with Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against the Red Devils in mind.

Fernando Llorente is available after missing the last game for personal reasons though Danny Rose and Harry Winks are sidelined.

Harry Kane is favourite to get the first goal of the game at 3.3 (23/10) with Christian Eriksen a 7.5 (13/2) shot with Unibet.

The North London outfit eased to a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture at Wembley while they also won by the same scoreline in a League Cup meeting in October 2014.

You can back the away win to nil at 2.5 (6/4) with some firms while Spurs are 1.5 (1/2) to score two or more goals with Sky Bet.
