Brighton & Hove Albion v Tottenham Hotspur Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th October 2019

Important three points for Spurs

Brighton & Hove Albion v Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips – Premier League, 5th October 12.30pm

The early kick off in the Premier League comes from the Amex Stadium on Saturday, as Brighton & Hove Albion host out-of-sorts Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs head to the Amex in poor spirits after falling to an embarrassing UEFA Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in midweek. The Lilywhites have also underperformed in the Premier League this term, so only three points will do in East Sussex on Saturday.

Brighton & Hove Albion News and Form – Winless run to continue for the Seagulls?

Life at the Amex Stadium could not have gotten off to a better start for Graham Potter, as Brighton & Hove Albion thumped Watford at Vicarage Road on the opening weekend of the Premier League season. The Seagulls ran riot in Hertfordshire, with an own goal and strikes from Florian Andone and Neal Maupay giving them a deserved 3-0 win.

However, since then, Brighton have failed to win any of their following six in the Premier League. In fact, Potter’s men have struggled, taking just three points from the last 18 on offer. Brighton have drawn with West Ham United, Burnley and Newcastle United, and lost to Southampton, Manchester City and Chelsea. Meanwhile, they beat Bristol Rovers in the League Cup before losing at home to Aston Villa.

Last weekend, Albion lost 2-0 to Frank Lampard’s Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Brighton held out for 50 minutes, but Jorginho’s penalty opened the scoring. With time running out, Willian’s deflected shot sealed the points for the Blues.

The Seagulls survived by the skin of their teeth under Chris Hughton last season, and they could be involved in another relegation scrap this time around.

Tottenham Hotspur News and Form – Can sorry Spurs strike back?

Tottenham Hotspur will still be licking their wounds after suffering a humiliating loss to German champions Bayern in the Champions League on Tuesday. Former Arsenal man Serge Gnabry was a thorn in Spurs’ side, netting four times in the 7-2 mauling at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Things have not been too great for Tottenham domestically, either. After seven Premier League fixtures, the Lilywhites occupy sixth place on 11 points. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won three, drawn two and lost two so far.

Spurs picked up just two points from a possible nine before securing a much-needed 2-1 home win over Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton last weekend. Tottenham made life difficult for themselves against the Saints, with Hugo Lloris at fault for Southampton’s goal and Serge Aurier being sent off in the first half. However, goals from Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane did the business for the Londoners.

For a top four side, Tottenham’s form away from home this year has been abysmal to say the very least. Spurs have failed to win on the road in the Premier League since winning 2-1 against Fulham at Craven Cottage way back in January. Can Pochettino’s troops pick up a rare three points on their travels at the weekend?

Brighton & Hove Albion v Tottenham Hotspur Predictions

Tottenham Hotspur win: Spurs have had a strange season so far, winning only three of their opening ten games in all competitions. The Lilywhites have had a month to forget, as they have tasted victory just once in five.

As we touched on, Tottenham have been woeful away from home in 2019, picking up just one Premier League away victory. Pochettino’s men will be desperate to put things right this weekend, and they should be too strong for lowly Brighton. Back Tottenham to win -1 at the tempting odds of 12/5.

Spurs may be floundering, but Harry Kane has been in tip-top form of late. The England skipper has netted 11 goals in 11 games for club and country this term. Back Kane to score first at the Amex at 3/1.
