Tottenham v Brighton Premier League Preview, 13th December 8.00pm
Tottenham looked back to their domestic best on the weekend as they tore apart Stoke, aided by some shocking defending by the Potters. That snapped Tottenham’s four match winless streak of form in the top flight and they get a chance to build momentum now as they face Brighton on Wednesday evening. The Seagulls were struck down at Huddersfield on the weekend losing a bit of ground in the table in the process. Tottenham are 1/4 to collect the win, with the draw at 11/2 and Brighton are out at 14/1 odds.
Tottenham News and Form
The Lilywhites snapped their four match winless streak of form in the league with a thumping 5-1 home win over Stoke on the weekend. They made it look really easy and Harry Kane added another couple of goals to his tally for the season and the England man is going as first goalscorer favourite with William Hill for the match. He has scored in three of his last four Premier League matches at Wembley now. That took his home tally to five goals in the league this season. Tottenham’s home form this season is W4 D3 L1 and they have gone unbeaten in their last seven at Wembley, winning four of their last five there. Spurs have shipped just the six goals at home (0.75 goals per game) and so they are going to be value to back to win to nil at William Hill which is up at a price of 4/5. They have three clean sheets in eight so far this season at Wembley. They have scored the bulk of their home goals (71% of them) so far in the second half of their home fixtures so the half time draw may not be too bad of an option going on, as Brighton will naturally be turning up in a pretty defensive mode.
Brighton News and Form
The Seagulls took a bad hit in a loss at Huddersfield on the weekend, that was a great chance for them to add a bit of security to their season. That is back to back league losses for them now and this is a tough game for them. Brighton are winless in their last five fixtures now (D2 L3) and they have failed to score in three of their last four games now as well. Their away form reads W2 D1 L5 for them and they have lost back to back away games without scoring. The Seagulls have only netted the five away goals all season in the top flight, but their defence has been pretty solid in having only conceded the nine goals in eight games out on their travels. Just 25% of their away games in the top flight have gone over 2.5 goals. Glenn Murray is their top scorer on the road this season with three and he is a 4/1 anytime goalscorer option in the fixture. In the William Hill correct score market, a Tottenham 2-0 is the shortest priced option at 5/1 while a 1-0 home result is there at 13/2. The Seagulls, given their current form and lack of scoring power, may have a real struggle in breaking down the tough Tottenham defence in this one.
Tottenham v Brighton Head to Head
The last time that Spurs and Brighton faced off in the league was back in the old Division 1 in the 1982/83 season and the two of them traded home wins on that occasions. Their most recent meeting though was a 2014 Capital One Cup tie which Spurs won 2-0 at White Hart Lane. The overall head to head is in Tottenham’s favour at 8-3 with the three drawn matches between them.
Who will win – Tottenham v Brighton Predictions
The Lilywhites looked back on song over the weekend and they can deliver again in this one. Brighton’s loss at Huddersfield will have been hugely disappointing for them and Spurs will likely heap a bit more misery on them in this one. Spurs to win to nil looks viable.
