Kane expects Spurs to be on the front foot

Tottenham finished in second place in the Premier League table last term after ending seven points behind eventual champions Chelsea.

"We want to win, this is our goal", said, Asamoah, who celebrated his 29th birthday on Saturday. "We were all up for the Stoke game and we said we had to get ahead because we've been going behind and having to chase the game".

"I feel good right now", the Accra-born added. "It was important for everyone to play well".

"It could have been a lot easier but at the same time, I'm confident that they can get a good result in this fixture".

They have also lost three of their four matches this season against other teams from the League's so called 'Big Six.' The tie against Juve will present another test of Tottenham's aspirations to take that next step on the road to joining the elite.

Another player who is in form is Heung-Min Son, who has often had to wait his turn from the substitutes' bench.

"We know how hard this division is and you know you're going to have hard periods".

Also, the five-yearly United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights and Nobel Peace Prize is awarded on December 10.

Albion have 17 points from 16 games and reflecting on the start, Hughton said: "You always want more".

"I'm just thinking that whenever I'm on the pitch, I need to make something happen".

Long-term absentees Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama remain sidelined.

This is Brighton's first league fixture with Tottenham since 1983 and they are boosted by being able to name a strong squad with only veteran Steve Sidwell unavailable.

Winger Anthony Knockaert could be recalled after being left out of the side that was beaten by Huddersfield at the weekend.

The Seagulls have failed to score a goal in the five away games they have played against sides now above them in the league.

Spurs' exciting and risky young side will have the advantage of playing at home in the second leg, but the 50-year-old Coach has overseen runs to the Champions League Final in two of his three full seasons in charge in Turin.
