The only Spurs player to retain his place from the team which lost 2-1 to Newcastle on Sunday was Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen.

England winger Aaron Lennon will lead the team out as captain.

The last time he started for Spurs, the striker Kane scored a hat-trick in the 5-1 Europa League win over Asteras on 26 October.

Spurs have, however, scored in each of their last 24 home matches in the League Cup, and tonight face a Brighton team who have failed to win in their last six games in all competitions, since a 3-0 win at Burton Albion in the League Cup in September.

Tottenham: Vorm, Naughton, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies; Dembele, Stambouli; Lennon, Kane, Townsend; Soldado.

Brighton: Walton; Calderon, Dunk, Hughes, Chicksen; Ince, Holla, Forster-Caskey, LuaLua, McCourt, Colunga
