Brighton v Tottenham tips: Will it be honours-even at the AMEX?
Tottenham Hotspur head to the AMEX Stadium looking to end a run of three straight defeats in all competitions with a Premier League victory on Saturday.
However, they will have their work cut out against a Brighton & Hove Albion side who have been racking up the points on home soil.
The pair’s last meeting ended in a 1-1 draw in Sussex. Will it be honours even again on Saturday, or can one side edge this encounter?
Spurs had won three head-to-heads on the trot before that draw at the AMEX in April. On paper, that streak bodes well for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
However, they face a Seagulls side who have taken a whopping 18 points from their last nine home Prem games. That run has included triumphs over Arsenal and Manchester United.
In the Match Betting, Spurs are 3/4 favourites. The Draw is a 27/10 shot, with a home win priced up at 17/5.
Brighton’s last four Prem matches have produced a combined 14 goals. It’s 3/4 for Over 2.5 Goals, whilst a third 2-2 Draw in as many games for Brighton is 14/1.
After being omitted for the midweek Champions League trip to Inter Milan, Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld are likely to be back in Poch’s plans this weekend.
Lucas Moura came on as a sub at the San Siro, but chances are he’ll start here.
Seagulls boss Chris Brighton rarely mucks around with his 4-1-4-1 system. Glenn Murray leads the line, while Dale Stephens is the anchor behind a more advanced midfield quartet.
Visitors’ striker Harry Kane is 4/5 favourite to notch Anytime. Meanwhile, the England international is 23/10 to bag Two or More Goals.
Lucas Moura has been excellent of late, and is 7/4 to get his name up in lights again.
For the hosts, it’s all about Glenn Murray. He’s 19/10 to register. The veteran hitman has scored four goals in as many outings – three of them beyond the hour mark. It’s 11/2 for Murray as Last Goalscorer.
