1. Recent Performances

Seagulls Downed By Eagles At The Weekend

Chris Hughton’s Brighton side have not won in five games, with their last victory coming at home to Arsenal on March 4. Since then, they have been knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United, and picked up Premier League defeats to Everton away from home, and at home to Leicester City. The defeat which will have hurt most, however, came at the weekend, when Albion were beaten at Selhurst Park by Crystal Palace, the game ending 3-2 in favour of the south London side. For fans of those two clubs, that game is regarded as a derby, so the Seagulls fans will be smarting after that loss.

Brighton are currently sitting in 13th place in the Premier League table, with 35 points. That puts them seven points above Southampton, who currently occupy the first relegation place. Hughton will want his team to pick up another five points to guarantee safety from the drop.

Anthony Knockaert is back in action for the Eagles, after five weeks out due to suspension. The French winger will be looking to provide the ammunition for striker Glenn Murray, who has now netted 12 times this season for Albion in the Premier League.

Spurs Want A Strong Start To This Game

Spurs head into this game on the back of a dispiriting defeat to champions-elect Manchester City at the weekend. The 3-1 defeat will have been especially painful, given that it came at Tottenham’s current home ground Wembley. The loss ended Spurs’ run of 14 Premier League games unbeaten, though they still have a seven-point cushion in place over fifth placed Chelsea.
Maurico Pochettino will be very keen to ensure that his team do not let their fourth place in the Premier League slip away from them. They still have an FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United to look forward to next weekend, so the Spurs boss must also balance the risks of possible injuries and suspensions when picking his team for this game at Brighton.

What particularly dismayed Pochettino about the defeat to City was the way in which his team allowed the away side to get into a two-goal lead so early in the game. City were 2-0 up after just 25 minutes of the first half. Anyone looking for Brighton vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tips for today should expect Spurs to start the game against the Eagles strongly as a result.

3. Previous Games

These two teams have met once before this season, in a Premier League at Wembley on December 13. That day, the game ended in a 2-0 win for Spurs, something that should probably be noted by anyone looking for Brighton vs Tottenham Hotspur free betting tips. That day, Tottenham emerged triumphant from the game, thanks goals from Serge Aurier after 40 minutes, and Son Heung-Min, who scored in the 87th minute. Christian Eriksen laid on Son’s goal, and was an influential presence all-round in the Spurs team that day.

Albion struggled that day to exert any meaningful influence on the game, with Spurs in control from early on. Anyone who wants to make an accurate Brighton vs Tottenham Hotspur prediction should take a look at the pattern of the game, to get a more realistic idea of the gap in quality between the teams. Brighton will hope home advantage on Tuesday helps to narrow that gap.

4. Game Prediction

Spurs have won four out of their last six games, with their only defeat in that spell, other than the weekend’s loss to Manchester City, coming against Juventus in the Champions League. In the four games they won in the lead-up to the City game, Spurs beat Bournemouth, Chelsea and Stoke City in the Premier League, and knocked Swansea City out of the FA Cup. In those four games, they scored 12 goals. That makes them pretty intimidating for a team who are where Brighton are in the league.

When it comes to making a prediction, then, it is hard to look beyond a victory for the away team. Pochettino’s team should not be complacent, because the Seagulls carry plenty of threat of their own, in the likes of Glenn Murray. Brighton 0 – 2 Spurs.
