Brighton v Tottenham: Predictions, team news, stats & how to watch

Tottenham will fancy their chances of extending their winning run to four matches when they travel to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton on Thursday evening.

Spurs have got their title charge back on track after a run of five games without a win, but they will need to be at their best to overcome a Brighton side that have scored goals for fun at home.

A win for Spurs could help them move into third place in the table, while Brighton could go as high as seventh with three points.

Brighton v Tottenham Predictions

Tottenham to win @ 31/20

After failing to win a game in November, Ange Postecoglou's Tottenham look to have found their rhythm again ahead of taking on Brighton in the Premier League.

Spurs lost their grip on top spot in the Premier League after a five-match winless run, but three successive victories have got their season back on track.

Brighton are winless in two and, while they are unbeaten in seven at home in the Premier League, they have only won one of their previous five on the South Coast as draws have affected their progress.

Spurs have only lost once in the league away from home, and they have what it takes to collect another three points.

Over 3.5 goals @ 6/5

While we expect Brighton to come up short on Thursday, that is not to say they cannot have their say in the contest.

Roberto De Zerbi's side have at least entertained their supporters, even though they have struggled to string wins together.

Brighton have scored in each of their last 17 Premier League home games since they were beaten 1-0 by Fulham back in February.

They have the firepower needed to trouble Spurs' leaky defence, but this should be a high-scoring encounter. Brighton have conceded in each of their last 12 league matches at the Amex since losing 1-0 to Manchester United in May.

Heung-Min Son to score anytime @ 7/5

When Tottenham sold Harry Kane to Bayern Munich in the summer, there was understandable concern that they would struggle to replace his goals.

While they have missed his quality at times in the final third, Son has stepped up to the plate and netted 11 goals so far this season.

He leads the way for Spurs, while he is tied fourth in the overall standings. With Richarlison now fit, he is back playing on the left wing, which is his favoured position.

Son's record away from home is too good to ignore ahead of this fixture, with the South Korea international involved in eight goals in his last seven appearances on his travels in the league. 

He has scored seven of those goals himself, and will hope to fire home more before he heads to the Asia Cup in January.

Brighton Team News

Brighton midfielder Kaoru Mitoma is expected to miss Thursday's contest due to an ankle injury, but De Zerbi will hope Simon Adingra can fill the void.

The Italian is still without Solly March, Pervis Estupinan, Julio Encisco, Joel Veltman, Ansu Fati, Tariq Lamptey and Adam Webster.

Tottenham Team News

Tottenham boss Postecoglou has confirmed centre-back Cristian Romero will miss the next month of action due to a hamstring injury, but Richarlison should be fit to start after shaking off a back problem.

Postecoglou is still without Manor Solomon, Ivan Perisic, Ryan Sessegnon, Rodrigo Bentancur, James Maddison, Micky van de Ven and Alfie Whiteman through injury, while Yves Bissouma will serve the second of a four-match suspension.

Destiny Udogie returns from a suspension of his own, but he may have to settle for a place on the bench after Emerson Royal's recent performances.

Brighton v Tottenham Stats

Brighton are unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions at home, with their last defeat coming in September, when they lost 3-2 to AEK Athens in the Europa League.

The Seagulls have struggled in the Premier League, though, only winning two of their last 10 in the top flight.

Tottenham will fancy their chances of finding the back of the net, having scored 37 goals already this season. Only Liverpool, Aston Villa and Manchester City have scored more.
