BRIGHTON host Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League action this evening as the Seagulls look to continue their impressive start to the season.
Roberto De Zerbi's men were impressive as he took charge for the first time in a 3-3 goal fest at Anfield.
Spurs, on the other hand, come into the clash off the back of disappointment in the north London derby, losing 3-1 last weekend.
Conte's men were then held to a frustrating 0-0 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League as they look to get back to winning ways today.
Brighton will be no pushovers though, sitting just three points behind their opponents going into the match, hoping to get the win on the south coast.

Segulls slight favourites for victory
There's only one place between them in the Premier League table, and the bookies are barely able to separate these two for this contest.
However, Brighton are unbeaten on home turf this season, winning their last two at the Amex, and – on that basis – are chalked as the slightest of favourites.
- Brighton win 13/8
- Draw 12/5
- Tottenham win 7/4

Spurs on the south coast
Good afternoon and welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League's Saturday teatime clash between Brighton and Tottenham.
It's a fixture that pits two Italian managers against each other, and one that sees two of the country's top four sides going head-to-head.
While Spurs' spot in the Champions League places is unsurprising, the Seagulls are soaring far beyond expectation.
Much of it is to do with the side and spirit built by the departed Graham Potter – yet it appears to be a vibe continuing under new gaffer Roberto de Zerbi.
The former Sassuolo boss has never got the better of Antonio Conte before, but will fancy his chances tonight given his side's performance at Anfield last week.
Leandro Trossard was the star of that show with a hat-trick, and he'll be the one vying with the visitors' ace attack for the spotlight here.
It's a 5.30pm kick-off at the Amex Stadium, and we'll soon have confirmation of the two teams as we build-up to the action.
