What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Brighton
Tottenham will be looking to enhance their prospects of a Premier League top-four finish by grinding out a home win over goal-shy Brighton.
The Seagulls boosted their survival hopes with a 0-0 draw at Wolves on Saturday but have now gone five games without getting on the scoresheet.
Punters can get 11/10 for a home win to nil here and that is a percentage pick for our first Tottenham vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham are coming off a couple of difficult fixtures against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium, which brought mixed fortunes.
Spurs sneaked through in the Champions League despite a dramatic 4-3 defeat last Wednesday but left empty-handed after a 1-0 loss in this competition.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men again found holes in City’s defence, but were not clinical in front of goal over the weekend.
Nevertheless, with three of their four remaining games being played at their new stadium, the manager says his side are in charge of their own top-four destiny.
Reflecting on Saturday’s match, he said: “I feel the performance was very good and at the least we deserved a draw. I think the man of the match was their goalkeeper Ederson.
“I think we competed really well in the circumstances and I am happy.
“We need to keep that feeling and translate it to Tuesday and be sure we can compete in our best way and be close to a win, as three points will be decisive in our race for the top four.”
Spurs have won all three matches played at this venue so far, by an aggregate score of 7-0, and we like 6/1 for a 2-0 triumph from the Tottenham vs Brighton odds.
Last Tottenham line-up: Gazzaniga, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Foyth, Davies, Dier, Alli, Eriksen, Moura, Son.
Tottenham will check on Hugo Lloris, who missed Saturday’s defeat with a slight muscle problem but could be fit, while Erik Lamela (hamstring) and Harry Winks (groin) will also be assessed.
Moussa Sissoko (groin) is out for two weeks and joins Harry Kane (ankle) in the treatment room.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton ended a run of four straight Premier League defeats by battling hard for a goalless stalemate at Wolves, which nudged them three points clear of the drop zone.
The Seagulls were branded boring by the home fans, who jeered them off after an unambitious performance at Molineux, where they failed to have a shot on target.
However, Chris Hughton said: “It’s about getting a result in any way we can. Having a good structure, working as hard as we did and trying to restrict them.
“It’s hard to get that balance and if we were playing better, with a little bit more freedom in our play, then it can be a little different, but all that was important was getting the result.
“We know what we’d like to do but we’re a team who, offensively, is lacking a bit of confidence.”
Albion are expected to batten down the hatches again here, but keeping out a high-tempo team like Spurs will be tough.
Son Heung-min has netted four goals in five games and scored at home to the Seagulls last season, so he is an obvious choice to break the deadlock at 3/1 in our Tottenham vs Brighton betting tips.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bruno, Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Stephens, Gross, March, Propper, Murray, Izquierdo.
Davy Propper has been ruled out with a hamstring problem, with Beram Kayal hoping to take his place, while winger Anthony Knockaert completes a three-match ban.
Man City 1-0 TOTTENHAM
Wolves 0-0 BRIGHTON
Head-to-head: Brighton 1-2 Tottenham, Brighton 1-1 Tottenham, Tottenham 2-0 Brighton
