Where: Amex Stadium, Brighton, England When: Thursday, December 28, 9:15 pm CET
As Tottenham continues to find its winning cadence, Brighton strives to establish consistency. The Seagulls want three points here so they can go up the standings and again end up in one of the spots that lead to the European competitions. Tottenham got over all their recent problems and now looks good. Let’s review recent performances before placing any bets on the upcoming match between Brighton and Tottenham.
Brighton vs. Tottenham Preview
In the past five English Premier League games, the Seagulls have only managed to secure a victory against Brentford at home, 2-1. They have also settled for draws against Burnley (at home) and Crystal Palace at Selhurst while suffering a loss to Arsenal in London.
The overall efficiency of Brighton’s events has significantly dropped, and the numbers show everything. There weren’t more than two goals in the previous four games across all competitions.
However, Brighton has been undefeated in their last eight appearances at the Amex Stadium, although only four of those encounters resulted in victories. That’s not too much, but when you look at it, not losing in eight games is fantastic, although there are plenty of ties.
On the other hand, Tottenham has been on a winning streak, securing three consecutive victories. The Spurs have numerous problems with injuries, and it’s really a pity they can’t count on all of their best players in the decisive moments of the campaign.
Key performers like James Maddison, who had been one of the best players in the Premiership this season, are still either sidelined or not fully fit.
Tottenham’s matches have maintained a high level of efficiency. In the last nine games, only one ended with less than three goals or both teams scoring. Ange Postecoglu remains committed to his attacking style of play, and stubbornly keeps pushing the same approach. After a short crisis, things got back on the right track, and the Aussie can be satisfied.
Brighton and Tottenham Possible Lineups
Brighton: Steele; Hinshelwood, Dunk, Van Hecke, Igor; Gross, Baleba; Adingra, Pedro, Mitoma; Ferguson
Tottenham: Vicario; Porro, Romero, Davies, Royal; Hojbjerg, Sarr; Johnson, Kulusevski, Son; Richarlison

Brighton vs. Tottenham Head to Head Games
Tottenham won both matches last year and was one of few teams in the league who triumphed against the Seagulls in both meetings. The first at Amex ended with a minimal win of the guests, 0-1, while the second saw Spurs overcoming the rivals, 2-1.
Brighton vs. Tottenham Predictions
Considering the offensive-oriented nature of both teams, this match is expected to be filled with goals. Why? As you can see, Tottenham is focused on the attack, and the Spurs are always after a goal. Now, even though Brighton’s recent games didn’t bring too many scores, when playing against an aggressive rival, the Seagulls always accept such style, because they, too, love to attack and compete, so we expect to see at least three goals.
Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
