Tottenham travel to the Amex to take on Brighton this Thursday in a big game in the top half of the Premier League table. Both sides have had an up and down season so far, but a win could have a big impact on their chances of European football.
Brighton currently sit ninth in the Premier League after 18 games. The Seagulls have seven wins, six draws and five losses, leaving them on 27 points, three points from European football.
In their last five games in all competitions, Brighton have two wins, two draws and one loss.
Bryan Mbeumo’s penalty gave Brentford an early lead against Brighton, but Pascal Gross drew The Seagulls level before halftime. In the second half, Jack Hinshelwood popped up with a goal to give Brighton the 2 - 1 win. However, next time out saw Wilson Odobert give Burnley the lead at halftime, but Simon Adingra’s goal in the 77th minute grabbed the 1 - 1 draw for Brighton.
In the last week of the Europa League Group stage, Brighton hosted Marseille. Joao Pedro left it until the 88th minute to grab the only goal of the game, giving Brighton the 1 - 0 win over Marseille. Back in the Premier League, Brighton faced Arsenal. Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz both scored in the second half to give Arsenal the 2 - 0 win, with Brighton only managing one shot on target even with more of the possession.
The last time out for Brighton was against their rivals Crystal Palace. Jordan Ayew gave Palace the lead in the added time of the first half, but Danny Welbeck grabbed a goal in the 82nd minute to give Brighton the 1 - 1 draw.
Tottenham, on the other hand, sit a little above Brighton in fourth. In 18 games, Spurs have 11 wins, three draws and four losses which leaves them on 36 points, four points from Arsenal at the top of the table.
In their last five games in all competitions, Tottenham have three wins, one draw and one loss.
Son Heung-min opened the scoring for Tottenham in the sixth minute for Tottenham but then scored an own goal just three minutes later to level the game and Phil Foden scored to give Manchester City the 2 - 1 lead at halftime. Giovani Lo Celso equalised but Jack Grealish regained the lead for City. However, Dejan Kulusevski scored to grab a 3 - 3 draw for Tottenham. Cristian Romero opened the scoring for Tottenham but Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse both scored to give West Ham the 2 - 1 win.
Destiny Udogie and Son both scored, along with a brace from Richarlison to give Tottenham an important 4 - 1 win against Newcastle. Despite the red card to Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Kulusevski both scored in the 2 - 0 win for Tottenham over Nottingham Forest.
The most recent outing for Tottenham was against Everton. Richarlison scored against his old club and was joined on the scoresheet by Son in the 2 - 1 win for Spurs.
Brighton and Tottenham have met 37 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1903. Tottenham have the far better record in the fixture with 20 wins in comparison to Brighton’s nine wins, with the other eight games finishing in a draw.
