Brighton vs Tottenham Tips
An exhilarating first game in charge of Brighton saw Roberto De Zerbi’s men play out a 3-3 draw against Liverpool at Anfield to keep them in the top four of the Premier League. Fourteen points from a possible twenty-one is a great return, sitting ahead of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool in the table.
Jakub Moder still remains sidelined with a long-term knee injury for the Seagulls, Mwepu remains a doubt through illness. After an impressive performance at Anfield last weekend, it's likely De Zerbi sticks with the same XI here.
Spurs sit 3rd in the Premier League table after a 3-1 loss in the North London Derby last week, their first defeat of the campaign. Seventeen points from a possible twenty-four now after their best start ever to a Premier League season, brought back down to earth with a dominant display from Arsenal last weekend, Conte will be looking to get back to winning ways here and keep building on their great start to the season.
A red card for Emerson in the North London Derby will see him miss out here, with Dejan Kulusevski and Lucas Moura also missing out due to injury. This could result in Perisic switching sides and Ryan Sessegnon replacing him at left wing-back.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; March, Mac Allister, Caicedo, Estupinan; Trossard, Welbeck, Gross
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Perisic, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son
A great start to the season for Brighton, in front of a home crowd here, I am backing them to not lose when they welcome Spurs.
The last couple of games Brighton have looked mightily impressive, putting five past Leicester followed by putting three past Liverpool at Anfield, they look to be improving on what was a struggle last season, finding the net.
A Spurs side who sit 3rd in the league but are reluctant to attack, they will be likely to give up a lot of the ball at Brighton who I think could punish them if they don’t sharpen up from the off. Arsenal came out and looked dominant against Spurs, scoring early on, with them again also unimpressive midweek against Frankfurt in a 0-0 draw, I am happy to side with backing Brighton where our stake is returned if it finishes a draw.
Fully expecting Tottenham to give up the majority of the ball and contain in a defensive shape away from home, allowing the Brighton players to rack up some passes looks inevitable.
Caicedo is yet to clear this line all season, but under new manager Roberto De Zerbi, renowned for his passing style of play, Caicedo managed a whopping 59 passes against Liverpool at Anfield which is almost unheard of. Against a Spurs side who allowed Frankfurt central midfielder Djibril Sow to make 66 passes in the 0-0 draw, 6/1 on Caicedo to nudge his numbers up a bit further looks a huge price for a small stake.
