Brighton vs Tottenham team news

Brighton will be boosted by the news that midfielder Moises Caicedo should be fit enough to play despite missing a training session on Thursday due to an undisclosed issue. However, Brighton will be without Zambian midfielder Enock Mwebu due to illness.

Antonio Conte’s side suffered a disappointing North London derby defeat against Arsenal in their last game and will be looking for a response against the Seagulls. They are likely to head into the game without Swedish midfielder Dejan Kulusevski who picked up a thigh injury during international duty. Likewise Spurs will also be without Emerson Royal who was sent off against Arsenal.

Brighton vs Tottenham Hotspur prediction

The Seagulls have enjoyed a strong start to the campaign and have won four of their opening seven games in the Premier League. If Brighton are to avoid defeat today then they will equal the club top flight record of having eight successive home games unbeaten which was last done in 1981.

Brighton are undoubtedly high on confidence after an impressive display during the 3-3 draw against Liverpool however, it is yet to be seen just how Roberto de Zerbi will fare as Brighton manager after replacing Graham Potter.

Tottenham suffered a 3-1 defeat to arch rivals Arsenal and will be aiming to get their season back on track with a victory in this game. Despite the defeat Antonio Conte’s side have had an impressive start to the Premier League season and have lost just one of their opening eight games.

The game will be a tight one to call and Brighton have been fairly solid at the Amex in recent weeks.

Our Prediction: Brighton 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur
