Preview: Last up on Sunday in the Premier League is Tottenham‘s home encounter with Brighton.

Tottenham Preview – Disappointing home record holding back title charge?

Whisper it quietly but are Spurs genuine title contenders this season? Despite a gruelling early schedule, seeing them feature twelve times across three separate competitions all in the space of 43 days, the club are fifth in the league, into the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup, and top of their group in the Europa League. Understandably, then optimism is abound among supporters – but neutrals, too, are taking stock.

Following last week’s hard-fought 1-0 win away to Burnley, in which Son Heung-min and Harry Kane combined for a quite remarkable ninth Tottenham goal so far this season, Jose Mourinho’s side have been backed into third-favourites (available at 7/1 with most bookmakers) for the Premier League title. Meanwhile Harry Kane, on five goals, heads the Top Scorer market in spite of team-mate Son leading the way on eight.

In a frightening prospect for their rivals, there is still plenty of room for this team to improve. Particularly their record at home. Across their three league games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season Spurs are still to register a win (D2 L1), losing to Everton and drawing with Newcastle and West Ham. Although quite how those draws didn’t become wins is a mystery, after dominating proceedings versus both.

Brighton Preview – Result still not matching the performance?

The Seagulls continue to confound just about everyone this season. Their football can be slick, fast-paced and attractive on the eye but, so far at least, has tended to deliver underwhelming outcomes. Six games in and while they occupy fourth spot in Infogol’s Expected Points table, the South Coast club are instead just two places above the bottom three having won only once (W1 D2 L3) – away at Newcastle (0-3) – thus far.

Unfortunately for Graham Potter, his chances of turning things around in the short-term are complicated by a tricky run of games, with five of their next six opponents against sides currently in the top half of the Premier League table. Perhaps, however, this can prove a blessing in disguise. After all, some of Brighton’s better displays this season, notably against Chelsea and Man Utd, have come against the league’s elite.

On a decidedly more positive note, a run of one defeat in their last ten top-flight away games (W3 D6 L1) is certainly something from which positivity and self-belief can be garnered. This season has seen them thrash Newcastle 3-0 at St James’ Park, score twice in a 4-2 loss at high-flying Everton, and boss Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, somehow drawing 1-1 despite limiting the hosts to one shot on target – a penalty.

Tottenham Vs Brighton Betting Advice

Tottenham have won all three Premier League home meetings against Brighton, two of which were without conceding a goal, but have never managed to score more than twice themselves. So this promises to be a tighter affair than the current standings would have us believe, particularly with Spurs involved in European action, away in Belgium, as recently as Thursday.

Tottenham vs Brighton – Key Facts

  • One loss in last 12 Premier League games for Tottenham (W7 D4 L1), who have, however, failed to win any of the last three held at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (D2 L1).
  • A 4-2 defeat at Goodison Park to Everton in October remains the only away defeat incurred in the last ten away league games by Brighton (W3 D6 L1).
  • Tottenham have won all three Premier League meetings with Brighton as the designated home side, coming from 1-0 down to win 2-1 in last season’s corresponding fixture.


In addition, Brighton rankly highly this season for Shots Conceded In The Box (1st) and Shots on Target Conceded (1st), while their xGC figure of 7.1 ranks fourth. Unfortunately this has still translated into them conceding in five of six league games until now. However, what they do reliably offer is a goal threat, with none of their opening six opponents preventing them from scoring. Goals at both ends seem inevitable therefore.
