Mark Lawrenson believes Tottenham Hotspur will extend their winless run at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday evening.

Spurs have endured a difficult couple of weeks since their impressive 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford back in August.

Tottenham lost 2-1 to Watford in their derby clash at Vicarage Road at the start of September ahead of the international break.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffered a 2-1 loss to title rivals Liverpool FC at Wembley in the Premier League last weekend.

The Lilywhites were leading 1-0 at the San Siro in the Champions League on Tuesday night as Spurs looked to bounce back in style.

However, Mauro Icardi levelled the clash with minutes to go of normal time before Matias Vecino netted a winner deep into added time.

Spurs will make the trip to Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday evening in search of a much-needed victory.

But former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson believes the Seagulls will secure a point against struggling Tottenham at the Amex Stadium on Saturday evening.

“Tottenham are just getting bashed by everyone at the moment, although I do think losing to Liverpool last week was a bigger blow than their defeat at Inter Milan,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

“Tactically, Spurs were naive at Wembley and the Reds could have been three or four goals up in the first half.”

He added: “Going to Brighton will be a different test, but this is definitely not an easy game.

The Seagulls are earning a reputation as being this season’s comeback kings, after fighting back from 2-0 down to get a draw in their past two matches.

They will relish the visit of Spurs after beating Manchester United at home in August and will fancy their chances of getting something out of this game too.”

Tottenham finished in third place in the Premier League table last term but failed to sign any new players in the summer transfer window.

Spurs have finished in the top four in the last four seasons.
