The Seagulls drew 0-0 at Wolves to move three points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

Spurs go into the game after a 1-0 defeat at title-chasing Manchester City and will be targeting a return to winning ways as they chase a top-four finish.

The game will be the fourth to be played in Spurs' new stadium. Tottenham have won the previous three matches without conceding a goal.

What time does Tottenham v Brighton kick off?

The games gets underway from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at 7.45pm.

Is the game on TV?

Yes, the match will be live on Sky Sports. Coverage begins on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League at 7.30pm.

What’s the team news?

England captain Harry Kane will miss the game with an ankle injury, while Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks and Serge Aurier are also set to miss out.

Eric Dier returned to action in Spurs' 1-0 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday.

Kieran Tripper, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama could all return to the starting line-up against Brighton.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton is unlikely to make too many changes from Saturday's 0-0 draw at Wolves.

Midfielder Davy Propper is likely to miss the match after suffering a hamstring injury against Wolves on Saturday. Beram Kayal came on to partner Dale Stephens in central midfield and could start at Tottenham.

Bruno also went off at Wolves but Hughton was hopeful the full-back could feature at Tottenham when speaking after the Wolves match. Martin Montoya would come into the side if Bruno is not fit for Tuesday's match.

Winger Anthony Knockaert serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

Who is the referee?

Chris Kavanagh will be the man in the middle for Brighton & Hove Albion's Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday evening.

Kavanagh also took charge of the first game between the sides this season when Spurs won 2-1 at the Amex in September. The Manchester-based official has taken charge of three other Brighton Premier League matches, the draws with Leicester (1-1) and West Ham (2-2) and the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.

He also officiated Albion's penalty shoot-out victory at Millwall in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
