But the team are finding it hard to pick up any serious momentum, having had their second league game in as many weeks postponed.
Tottenham were scheduled to clash with the Seagulls on Sunday, December 12, but they will not have to play the south coast side on a date TBC.
Why has Brighton vs Tottenham been postponed?
Tottenham’s clash with Brighton has been postponed because of a Covid-19 outbreak at the club.
Eight players and five members of staff have tested positive for the virus, therefore the club had a request to postpone the Brighton clash granted.
“The Premier League Board has taken the decision to postpone the game following guidance from medical advisers, with the health of players and staff the priority,” the Premier League said in a statement.
Spurs also had to postpone their Europa Conference League clash with Rennes.
“We should like to apologise to everyone at Stade Rennais and Brighton & Hove Albion and to both their supporters and ours for any inconvenience caused,” a Tottenham statement read.
“We should also like to thank both clubs for their understanding during these challenging times.”
This is the second game in three weeks Spurs have had to postpone after their game with Burnley was halted before kick-off due to adverse weather.
Conte has since said he is ‘scared’ because of the outbreak, which has caused the club to close the training ground.
It’s likely a date in the new year will be found for both of Tottenham’s games with Brighton and Burnley.
