What Trueform says for Brighton vs Tottenham
Tottenham’s recent woes continued with a heart-breaking Champions League loss at Inter Milan in midweek and they look worth taking on at Brighton.
Spurs have also tasted defeat in their last couple of Premier League games, while Albion have already beaten Manchester United on home turf this term.
That all makes 15/4 for the Seagulls to come out on top a tempting price for our first Brighton vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton go into this game on the back of successive 2-2 draws against Fulham and Southampton, bravely battling back from 2-0 down on both occasions.
Shane Duffy’s 67th-minute header gave Albion a lifeline at St Mary’s Stadium and then the in-form Glenn Murray converted a stoppage-time penalty.
The veteran striker previously bagged a brace versus the Cottagers and Chris Hughton said: “I think what he does do, irrespective of a performance, he shows his experience when you need him.
“If Glenn gets the one good chance in front of goal, you’re fairly confident he’ll put it away. If there’s anybody you want in that situation, it would be Glenn.”
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya, Stephens, Bissouma, Knockaert, March, Propper, Murray.
Pascal Gross remains Brighton’s only absentee with an ankle injury sustained against Fulham before the international break.
Winger Jose Izquierdo and forward Florin Andone are awaiting their first appearances of the season after returning to fitness.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
After domestic losses to Watford and Liverpool, Tottenham looked on course to respond with a European triumph when Christian Eriksen put them ahead at Inter Milan on 53 minutes.
However, the Nerazzurri conjured up a dramatic finish as goals from Mauro Icardi and Matias Vecino in the closing stages sent the San Siro wild.
“The team deserved much more and I think that was our best performance since we started the season, but we lost the game,” moaned Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs had more representation for the duration of the World Cup than any other club, with nine players staying in Russia for the entirety of the tournament, and they appear to be paying the price, with Harry Kane appearing especially drained of energy.
Off-field problems have also hit them, with a move back to White Hart Lane delayed and captain Hugo Lloris convicted for drink-driving.
Poor defending at set-pieces has cost them dearly, with five of the six goals they have conceded in their three defeats coming from dead balls.
Let’s round off our Brighton vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 14/1 for the visitors to suffer a fourth straight 2-1 loss.
Last Tottenham line-up: Vorm, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Aurier, Davies, Lamela, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Son, Kane.
Tottenham will assess Dele Alli after he returned to training following a hamstring injury.
Moussa Sissoko (knee) is also back in training but Lloris (thigh) will again miss out.
Toby Alderweireld and Kieran Trippier will be back in the squad after they were rested at Inter Milan.
