Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Tottenham v Brighton

Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has warned his team-mates that Brighton & Hove Albion will be fighting for everything, ahead of the meeting between the sides on Tuesday.

Spurs will take confidence from being back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where they have won their opening three games, scoring seven and conceding none.

With all of the candidates for the remaining top-four places dropping points in their last fixtures, it nearly seemed as though none of them want Champions League football next season.

This was the most frustrating fixture at the £1 billion ground as the hosts looked hamstrung without injured striker Harry Kane until Eriksen came to the rescue with his ninth goal of the season in all competitions.

Spurs appeared to be heading for an underwhelming draw that would have seen Brighton edge closer to securing their Premier League safety, but Eriksen struck two minutes from time to cruelly deny Chris Hughton's hard-working side. If we win our games for sure we are going to be third.

Pochettino made five changes in an attacking line-up featuring Son Heung-min, Dele Alli, Eriksen, Lucas Moura and Fernando Llorente.

It was more of the same in the second half as Brighton - sitting just three points above Cardiff in the relegation zone - seemingly content to put all their numbers behind the ball and hit on the counter.

Kings coach Luke Walton sued for sexual assault
Luke Walton is already facing controversy as he takes over the Sacramento Kings' head coaching job. Tennant said she confided with people at the time of the alleged attack but never filed charges.

Lucas, scorer of a hat-trick in Tottenham's previous home game against Huddersfield, almost teed up Alli with a low cross, but Lewis Dunk slid in to clear off the line at the last second.

And Pochettino wants more of the same.

The move left Tottenham a little short of pace and penetration as they laboured to break down Brighton.

Brighton were fortunate again a few moments before half-time - Shane Duffy crucially clearing Alli's close-range effort off the line.

We introduced Vincent Janssen for Lucas with 10 minutes remaining - the Dutchman's first senior Spurs appearance since August, 2017 - and kept up the pressure, Eriksen testing Ryan with a rasping drive which he kept out, the rebound nearly falling to Janssen.

Janssen didn't make much of an impression, but Tottenham kept pressing and, with their 29th shot, Eriksen finally landed the knockout blow in the 88th minute. There wasn't really a chance of note until the 67th minute when Danny Rose picked up the ball and let fly with his right foot from 25 yards, Ryan superbly saving.
