Brighton vs Tottenham Prediction & Betting tips
This week there are four Premier League matches midweek on the program. Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspurt kick off this catch-up week with a duel.
Brighton & Hove Albion:
Brighton plays two games in three days and is free this weekend. The Seagulls played against Crystal Palace on Saturday and had taken a good step towards preserving their lives when they beat Palace. However, Chris Hughton’s team lost to Crystal Palace and as a result, a number of competitors have moved closer to Brighton & Hove Albion. With 35 points and a lead of seven points on the relegation zone, they do not have to panic at Brighton, although The Seagulls will also realize that the remaining program is heavy for Hughton and his team.
With 3-2, Brighton lost to Crystal Palace on Saturday. Already within a quarter of an hour it was 2-0 at Selhurst Park for Crystal Palace and that they had to thank at Brighton itself. The 1-0 and the 2-0 of Palace were created from corner kicks and beforehand Hughton will have emphasized that standard situations this season are a weapon of Palace. At Brighton they then came from a corner back to 2-1, but bad defending ensured that Crystal Palace was able to find the net and already after 34 minutes of play the 3-2 final score was on the scoreboard.
At Tottenham Hotspur they already seem to like Champions League qualification. The lead on Chelsea is seven points and so The Spurs can actually play the season quietly. Perhaps the team of Mauricio Pochettino can increase a bit in the ranking of the Premier League, but then there must be won on a visit to Brighton. The Spurs would still be able to pass Liverpool (3 points behind) and Manchester United (4 points behind) in the rankings and Pochettino’s team could have done good business this weekend when Manchester City visited the Wembley Stadium.
However, Tottenham Hotspur did not. The Spurs lost 1-3 to Manchester City and that defeat was justified. After 22 minutes of play Manchester City made the 0-1 and from eleven meters İlkay Gündoğan made the 0-2 on behalf of the visitors from Manchester. Manchester City got a penalty kick unjustly, but at Tottenham they were also lucky that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was not sent off with a red card. In the end Tottenham lost with 1-3 of the national champion and that makes it difficult for The Spurs to rise in the rankings. Incidentally, the formation Pochettino Saturday again in the box in a squatter, because Manchester United is then in the semifinal of the FA Cup the opponent of The Spurs. It is possible that Pochettino will rotate on Tuesday evening, but that will be the usual changes.
