Brighton generally have a clean bill of health, apart from midfielder Steve Sidwell, who has a problem with his lower back.

They did not cause the Premier League outfit much trouble as goals from Erik Lamela and Harry Kane meant Spurs cruised into the quarter finals.

Tottenham have been struggling massively in recent weeks, and their victory in their last game was their only win in their last five (two draws, two defeats).

Tottenham looked back to their old selves against Stoke but in truth the Potters were very poor and Brighton will certainly defend better. Francesco Totti said the draw was relatively kind to Roma but stressed that the Serie A side will not underestimate Shakhtar. "But in this division, your next game could be a very hard one and you've got to show you accept what the division is, have learned from it and do your best in the next game".

Tottenham and Brighton have not met in the league since April 1983 but they were paired together in the fourth round of the League Cup in October 2014.

Spurs have beaten Liverpool FC this season but have lost to Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal this term.
