Tottenham Prediction – Can Tottenham produce Boxing Day bounce-back?

A disappointing 2-0 loss in their recent all-London clash against rivals, Chelsea, saw Tottenham enter the busy festive period on the back of a defeat and although they’ve performed reasonably well since new manager Jose Mourinho took over, this is Spurs’ second defeat against one of Mourinho’s old clubs following a recent loss to Manchester United.

Results have been mixed for Tottenham in recent weeks as the north London club have picked up wins against Bournemouth, Burnley and Wolves but have also suffered defeats to the aforementioned Manchester United and Chelsea as well.

An overall home record of 5-2-2 19/9 suggest Tottenham are heading in the right direction at least on home turf as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 7 matches at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and includes wins over Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Southampton, Bournemouth and Burnley.

Tottenham have won by 2+ clear goals in just 3 of their 9 home matches this season though, and their leaky defence is continuing to concede on a regular basis – indeed, Tottenham have kept just 2 clean sheets to date at home this season.

Brighton Prediction – Can Brighton hold their own against Spurs?

A promising 3-match sequence without defeat in the Premier League came to an abrupt end on the weekend when The Seagulls suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Sheffield United at their AMEX Stadium, so they too will be keen to get something from this Boxing Day clash in north London.

A 2-1 win away from home at Arsenal was followed by back-to-back draws with Wolves and Crystal Palace in 2-2 and 1-1 stalemates respectively, and they head into this clash with Tottenham having avoided defeat in their last 2 away matches in the top flight.

Brighton have been hard to inflict convincing wins over this season too with only Manchester City really giving them a hiding in a 4-0 win back at the end of August, and although Graham Potter’s side have lost by 2+goals against Chelsea and Manchester United too, it’s just 3 out of their 9 away matches to date this season that The Seagulls have lost by such a margin.

The visitors possess an away record of 2-2-5 9/15 but Brighton will be encouraged by the fact that they’ve avoided being beaten by 2 goals or more by Tottenham in their last 4 meetings – indeed, Brighton recorded a 3-0 win at home over Tottenham in early October.


Key-Facts – Tottenham vs Brighton

  • Tottenham have won by 2+ clear goals in just 3 of their 9 home matches
  • Brighton have lost by 2+goals in just 3 of their 9 away matches this term
  • Brighton recorded a 3-0 win at home over Tottenham in early October


Betting Tips Verdict

Tottenham may well end up winning this one but Brighton stand a good chance of at least covering the handicap here.
