Tottenham vs Brighton – 20:45

Tottenham continue their scramble to finish in the top four of the Premier League with a home game against battling Brighton on Tuesday night.

The pair meet in north London with plenty at stake at either end of the table.

Spurs’ mini-revival was brought to a halt by title-contenders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

It left back-to-back wins and even their Champions League success against the same opposition in the rear-view mirror.

Mauricio Pochettino and Co look set to go to the wire in their jostle for a top four finish with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Brighton scrounged a point from their weekend trip to Wolves thanks to a 0-0 draw at Molineux.

The Seagulls are three points clear of Cardiff in the final relegation spot, with this their game in hand.

Watford vs Southampton – 20:45

Watford take on all-but-safe Southampton in the Premier League on Tuesday at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets are in the thick of the chase for a seventh-place finish under boss Javi Gracia, with two wins in three including Saturday’s 2-1 success at relegated Huddersfield.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has piloted his Saints to the bring of survival in the top flight, although a 3-1 loss at Newcastle leaves them with a little work still to do to be mathematically certain of extending their EPL stay.

United come into their derby showdown on the back of a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side continued their alarming form since his permanent appointment as boss with an appalling performance at Goodison Park.

It left the Red Devils back off the top four pace once again and back where they began in sixth, two points adrift of Champions League qualification.

Wolves vs Arsenal – 20:45

Arsenal have work to do in their top four tilt as they face a tricky trip to Wolves in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The Gunners’ late challenge for a third-place finish above north London rivals Tottenham has been undermined by two defeats in their last three.

Unai Emery’s side were beaten 1-0 at Everton just over a fortnight ago before rising up to beat Watford by the same scoreline.

The floodgates opened at the Emirates on Sunday, however, with visitors Crystal Palace taking three points back across the river Thames after winning a ding-dong clash 3-2.

Wolves’ entertaining first campaign back in the top flight has drifted into obscurity in recent weeks.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have won just one of their last five to slip back into tenth in the table.

They were held to an annoying goalless draw at home by relegation-haunted Brighton last weekend.
