Premier League: Brighton vs Tottenham preview


Tottenham are looking to snap their three-game losing streak as they travel to face Brighton at Amex Stadium on Saturday. Last season Brighton managed to held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw at home after having lost 2-0 in London, but the Spurs have won three of the last four direct matches. Brighton have not won a match against Tottenham since 1983, when they secured a 2-1 league victory. The first match between these two clubs was played all the way back in 1903, but since then they have rarely been in the same division. There have been 24 direct meetings so far and Tottenham won half of them.

Brighton have won just one of their six matches in all competitions so far this season, but that victory was a prestigious one as they defeated Manchester United 3-2. Before the international break the Seagulls fought back from 2-0 down to secure a draw against Fulham and after the international break they did the same thing at Southampton, restoring parity in stoppage time after having trailed by two goals. Florin Andone, Pascal Gross and Jose Izquierdo are all injury doubts for manager Chris Houghton, who will most likely field the same starting eleven that secured the draw at Southampton last time out.

Tottenham are going through a dark phase, they have lost three consecutive matches in all competitions after having started the season with three consecutive wins. The losing streak started before the international break, when the Spurs lost 2-1 at surprising Watford, and then they lost 2-1 at home against Liverpool last weekend before a 2-1 defeat at Inter Milan in the Champions League this week. Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld were not employed in the Champions League match but they should return to action in the Premier League, while Juan Foyth, Vincent Janssen and Hugo Lloris remain injured.

Probable line-ups:

Brighton: Ryan - Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bong - Stephens - Gross, Propper, Bissouma, March - Murray

Tottenham: Vorm - Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose - Eriksen, Dier, Dembele - Moura, Kane, Son Heung-Min

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Brighton win - 4.50
Draw - 3.80
Tottenham win - 1.72
