Brighton vs Tottenham Prediction & Match Preview
Brighton vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 5 October 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).
Brighton have fallen out of their groove and have been alternating between draws and losses in their last five games. The home team were handed a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in their previous trip on the road, while their last home clash in the Premier League saw them hold Burnley to a 1-1 draw.
With just one win in the new season, the Seagulls have amassed no more than six points under their belt and are currently sixteenth in a table of twenty.
Spurs bounced back from the shock defeat they succumbed to against Leicester on the road by taking down Southampton with a 2-1 scoreline at home. The win was a much-needed breather for Mauricio Pochettino’s men who were booted from the Carabao Cup the previous week, by fourth-tier side, Colchester.
With four other teams’ level on points with them in the ladder, you can certainly count on Tottenham to settle for nothing less than the win when they travel to Brighton this week.

Brighton vs Tottenham Prediction
The hosts have let down their home supporters so far and are yet to register a win on home soil this season. Furthermore, out of their last four games here in all competitions, Brighton have gone on to score just thrice, while being at the receiving end of seven in the process.
On the other hand, Tottenham have admitted defeat just once in their last four outings. Also, to their defense, all of their opponents in those clashes were sides that are currently residing in the top four.
Taking into account that the away side have not been at the losing end in any of their previous visits to this venue either, expect Pochettino men to make the trip back home with all three points.
Additionally, Spurs have not been at their defensive best on the road, and are yet to keep a clean sheet in their outings in the Premier League. Considering that their last two head to head clashes here have also seen both teams find the back of the net together, there is certainly every reason to believe that there will be goals down either end.
