          Tottenham vs Brighton: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

          Brighton travel to London to take on Tottenham Hotspur in what will be an important match for both sides as they fight for the European places.

          • Date: 10/02/24
          • Kick-off time: 15:00
          • Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

          Tottenham will be hoping to get back to winning ways as they look to make their way back into the top four of the Premier League table. Brighton need three points to maintain their position in the top eight and potentially close the gap on the teams above them.

          Ange Postecoglou’s side currently sit in fifth place, after they missed the opportunity to get level on points with Aston Villa and Arsenal following Everton’s late equaliser last weekend. After looking set for victory, Jarrad Branthwaite’s 94th-minute goal denied Spurs all three points. A win against Brighton will keep them firmly in the hunt for the Champions League spots.

          For the Seagulls, a top-four spot is too far away, but they will fancy their chances of earning a second consecutive European campaign. In eighth, they are a point off West Ham in seventh and three off Man United in sixth. There are also a number of teams below them who are waiting to take advantage of any mishaps. After a humbling 4-0 defeat at the hands of Luton, they recovered well to dismantle their rivals Crystal Palace 4-1 at the weekend.

          Both sides play great offensive football, with plenty of goals. With 49 goals scored, Spurs boast the league’s third-best attack, whilst Brighton are not too far behind with 42. Though top scorer Heung-Min Son is still away at the Asia Cup, the recent return of James Maddison has provided a huge boost. Richarlison has also emerged as a serious threat, with the Brazilian scoring nine goals in his last eight league games.

          Defences may take a back seat in this one, as the two sides have kept a combined three clean sheets since the beginning of December. Spurs have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games. Roberto De Zerbi will be hoping Joao Pedro can add to his tally of eight goals.

          Since Brighton were promoted in 2017, they have faced Spurs 14 times, in which they have won three. One of those victories was the reverse fixture earlier this season, a 4-2 win at the AMEX. The final score actually flattered the visitors, as the hosts took a 4-0 lead before late strikes from Alejo Veliz and Ben Davies threatened a comeback. Pedro scored a brace from the penalty spot, adding to goals by Jack Hinshelwood and Pervis Estupinan.

          Form Guide (Last Five Games)

          Tottenham Form Guide:

          In their last five games, Tottenham have won twice, drawn twice and lost once. Spurs’ one defeat came in the FA Cup, as they now face another trophyless season. It was a 1-0 defeat at home to Man City, with Nathan Ake scoring the late winner to knock them out in the fourth round. They got to this stage of the competition with a 1-0 win of their own, this time at home to Burnley. Pedro Porro’s wonder-strike proved the difference.

          Last time out saw them blow a lead twice, as Everton came from behind to score a 94th-minute equaliser which sent Spurs back to London with just the one point. Richarlison had opened the scoring in the first five minutes against his former club, before Jack Harrison bundled home the equaliser. The Brazilian scored his second to regain the lead, but Jarrad Branthwaite tapped in at the back post to salvage the draw.

          This was Spurs’ second 2-2 draw in this stretch of games, with the first coming at Old Trafford. Man United had taken the lead twice, including a third-minute opener from Rasmus Hojlund, but they were pegged back both times as Richarlison and Rodrigo Bentancur got on the scoresheet.

          They followed this draw with a 3-2 win over Brentford, in which they once again had to overturn a deficit. Neal Maupay scored a 15th-minute goal to give the Bees a half time lead. However, this did not last long after the break as Destiny Udogie and Brennan Johnson scored twice in as many minutes to quickly turn it around. Richarlison added a third before Ivan Toney got another back to make things interesting, but Spurs managed to hold on to take all three points.

          Brighton Form Guide:

          In their last five games, Brighton have won three, drawn one and lost one. They recovered well from a crushing 4-0 defeat at Luton Town with a resounding 4-1 victory over their rivals Crystal Palace. Lewis Dunk opened the scoring after three minutes, before Jack Hinshelwood and Facundo Buonanotte doubled and tripled the lead with two goals in as many minutes. Jean-Philipe Mateta pulled one back, but Joao Pedro added a fourth late on.

          Alongside their quest for European football, the Seagulls will be hoping for a deep FA Cup run. They have ensured progression into the fifth round after a 5-2 win at Sheffield United. They had taken a 2-0 lead before they were pegged back before half-time. Second-half strikes from Joao Pedro and Danny Welbeck saw them through. A 4-2 win at Stoke City in the third round was how they made it to this stage of the competition.

          Between these two FA Cup ties was a 0-0 draw at home to Wolves in which they dominated possession, but could not find a way past Jose Sa in the opposition net.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          This game should be full of goals, with both sides enjoying plenty of success up front but struggling to keep clean sheets. Spurs have been strong at home and we expect this advantage to give them the edge. We Predict: Tottenham 3-2 Brighton
