Brighton v Tottenham Hotspur: history of encounters
By English standards, the teams do not have a rich history between them. From 1977 to 2021, only 23 face-to-face matches were played, 14 of which Tottenham won and only five wins for Brighton, two of which occurred in the last two home games of the Seagulls in 2019 and 2021. The teams have already played against each other this season – Tottenham beat Brighton 3-1 in the FA Cup Round 4 in London on February 5, 2022.
Brighton vs Tottenham Hotspur predictions
What do Brighton, Liverpool and Arsenal have in common? These three teams came to mind when Pep Guardiola was asked to name the most attacking teams in the Premier League while the others sit in defence. But while Liverpool and Arsenal are storming into the league top four, Brighton have won just one in four games, scoring on average less than one goal per game. Only table-toppers Norwich are lower. Brighton were only four defeats away from home in the AFL when Brighton and Tottenham met for the first time in the FA Cup in early February – a 3-1 win for the Londoners. Since then they have been in a tailspin, losing five games in a row by a combined score of 1-11.
The odds are 2.33 to win, but that’s no surprise as Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are a festival team that can win 3-2 against Everton before losing a match to bottom-flight side Burnley. But a humiliating defeat to Man United should not be a setback. That said, a single goal can literally decide the outcome of the match against Brighton, which will decide the winner – in five of Brighton’s last six games and in four of Tottenham’s last six games, only one team has scored. You can bet on both sides to score for 2.10.
