How we expect Tottenham to line up against Brighton in the FA Cup


ew signings Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur are set to be in the squad but will not start Tottenham’s FA Cup fifth-round tie at home to Brighton on Saturday.

Antonio Conte is set to welcome back Cristian Romero and Heung-min Son from hamstring injuries, and both can expect to go straight back into the XI against the Seagulls.

But Oliver Skipp (groin) and Japhet Tanganga (knee) are both unavailable, meaning Harry Winks should continue his run of starts in the middle of the park.

Conte has a decision to make at right wing-back, where Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty now face competition from Kulusevski, who Conte believes could be an option in the role.

The Spurs manager must also pick between Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn for the third attacking spot after impressive displays from the Dutchman before the winter break.

Tottenham predicted XI: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Winks, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Lucas, Kane, Son.

Where: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

When: Saturday, February 5, 8pm GMT

Referee: Stuart Attwell

Spurs squad from: Lloris, Gollini, Austin, Doherty, Emerson, Reguilon, Sessegnon, Davies, Romero, Dier, Rodon, Sanchez, Winks, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, White, Bergwijn, Lucas, Kulusevski, Son, Kane.

Injured: Skipp (groin), Tanganga (knee)
