Tottenham vs Brighton: English Premier League (EPL) Match Prediction

For all the fantasy football geeks out there, we share prediction tips of league matches that will give them a better shot at predicting and winning. Starting with EPL 2019.

Tottenham Hotspur will look to bounce back quickly from their defeat to Chelsea when they host Brighton in their EPL clash on Boxing Day.

Spurs fell to a third defeat in five games across all competitions on Sunday, going down 2-0 to Chelsea in the English Premier League.

Brighton, meanwhile, are also coming on the back of a home defeat against Sheffield United and now just have one win in their last seven matches in the PL. They head into Boxing Day five points off the drop.

Spurs had lost to Brighton in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Tottenham’s performance in EPL 2019:

Son Heung-Min starts a three-match ban for his straight red card for violent conduct in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho is therefore forced into at least one change for the Boxing Day welcome of Brighton but he may ponder others too.

Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele, Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose will all push for starts on Thursday.

Son’s unavailability could prompt Mourinho to hand Ryan Sessegnon his English Premier League debut for Tottenham. Otherwise a formation change could be on the cards.

Brighton’s performance in EPL 2019:

Brighton remain without Jose Izquierdo and Solly March for the Boxing Day trip to Tottenham.

Graham Potter will ponder changes after their 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United on Saturday. Fresh legs may be required here given the quick turnaround between matches.

Adam Webster was at fault for Sheffield United’s winner and Shane Duffy will hope to regain his place at centre-back here.

Aaron Connolly burst onto the scene with a double in Brighton’s win over Tottenham earlier in the season and will hope to start against the north London outfit here.

Tottenham vs Brighton Predicted line-up:

Tottenham

Paulo Gazzaniga; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose; Eric Dier, Harry Winks; Ryan Sessegnon, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura; Harry Kane.

Brighton

Mat Ryan; Martin Montoya, Adam Webster, Lewis Dunk, Dan Burn; Aaron Mooy, Dale Stephens, Davy Propper; Pascal Gross; Neal Maupay, Aaron Connolly.

Tottenham vs Brighton: Today's Match Prediction

  1. Brighton have failed to score on their last three trips to Tottenham but Jose Mourinho should expect a tough game on Thursday.
  2. Harry Kane has fired a blank in four of his last five games.
  3. Neal Maupay is Brighton’s top EPL goal scorer this season with seven, at least five more than any other player.
  4. Spurs have won their last 3 top-flight home games against Brighton, keeping a clean sheet each time.
  5. Brighton are looking to complete their first ever league double over Spurs.
  6. Spurs are unbeaten in their 13 top-flight Boxing Day clash since losing at Portsmouth in 2013.
  7. Meanwhile, Brighton are winless in their last 10 Boxing Day games.
  8. Since Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of Spurs, no club has conceded more goals across all competitions- 14- joint most with Arsenal.
  9. Son Heung-min was red carded for the 3rd time in 2019.
  10. Spurs have scored just 3 goals in their last 3 games.

 For all the fantasy football geeks out there, we share prediction tips of league matches that will give them a better shot at predicting and winning. Starting with EPL 2019. 

After some really shambolic results, including a 7-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the last game, Tottenham are seeking to avoid a full-blown crisis mode when they travel to Brighton this weekend. All is not well in Spurs’ dressing room either with reports Moussa Sissoko questioned Mauricio Pochettino’s tactics following the loss to Bayern Munich.

Meanwhile, Brighton still haven’t won in the English Premier League since the opening game of the season. But they might have sensed that this is the perfect opportunity to break that drought.

Brighton & Hove Albion's Performance in EPL 2019​

Shane Duffy is still out with a calf injury, while full-back Bernardo and Leandro Trossard remain sidelined.

Brighton and Hove Albion manager Graham Potter has confirmed that both Solly March and Alireza Jahanbakhsh will be available which means March will be pushing for a start.

Ezequiel Schelotto has recovered from a knee injury, but it remains to be seen when he will feature again.

Jose Izquierdo, Leon Balogun and Davy Propper also miss out.

Despite the defeat to Chelsea last week, Graham Potter could name an unchanged XI, sticking to the 3-5-1-1 formation.

Tottenham Spurs Performance in EPL 2019​

Serge Aurier is suspended following his red card in the 2-1 win over Southampton, with Davinson Sanchez set to get the nod at right-back.

Giovani Lo Celso (hip) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) remain Tottenham’s only injury absentees, but Pochettino will surely make changes to his team after Tuesday’s drubbing.

Christian Eriksen started the 7-2 loss to Bayern from the bench, but should feature from the off here.

Spurs are likely to field 4-3-1-2 formation but a back three could also be the order of the day, with Moussa Sissoko or Danny Rose going into the midfield.

Brighton vs Tottenham: Predicted Line-up

Brighton

Mat Ryan; Adam Webster, Lewis Dunk, Dan Burn; Martín Montoya, Dale Stephens, Yves Bissouma, Pascal Groß, Steven Alzate; Aaron Mooy; Neal Maupay.

Tottenham

Hugo Lloris; Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen; Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele; Christian Eriksen, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min.

EPL 2019: Brighton vs Tottenham Prediction

1-     Brighton are winless in all 4 of their English Premier League meetings with Spurs (Drawn 1, lost 3), losing both matches last season. Meanwhile, Spurs haven’t lost against Brighton in any competition since 1983. Even though Spurs are struggling, the end of this streak looks really difficult.

2-     Brighton have lost just one of their last 19 Premier League  games in October, losing away to Arsenal in 2017. And though they look unlikely to add to their tally of 10 wins, probably the best chance they have is to increase the number of draws in this month from 8 to 9.

3-     Spurs have won just 22 points in their last 19 Premier League games, 12 teams have won more and it won’t be a surprise if they drop points again.

4-     Tottenham have failed to win their last 9 away matches in EPL 2019 while Brighton have failed to win their last 8 home matches in the league. And barring any major surprises, Spurs might win the race to be better amongst the worst.

5-     Tottenham have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 3 away Premier League matches but are up against a team which has scored just 5 goals, less than 17 teams.

6-     There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 7 of Tottenham’s last 8 EPL  games while there have been under 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Brighton’s last 6 Premier League home games. Given the defensive fragility of both the teams, along with Spurs attacking abilities – only 2 teams have scored more than them- it’s Spurs streak that is likely to stretch.

7-     Only 4 players have created more chances in the Premier League this season than Brighton’s Pascal Groß – 17.
