Tottenham Hotspur have taken a hold on fourth spot in the Premier League standings, and will be looking for a fifth straight victory in the English top-flight on Saturday when they host Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.
Premier League Preview
It has been an excellent month or so for Tottenham Hotspur, as they have quickly emerged as the side to catch in the race to finish in the Champions League places in the Premier League. Spurs are currently three points ahead of Arsenal with their massive North London derby looming, which they are also six points ahead of both West Ham United and Manchester United.
Tottenham have been able to step it up a gear over recent weeks, as they have quickly extended their advantage in fourth after winning their previous four fixtures in the Premier League. Their attacking talent has been behind their return to form, and that is evident by the fact that they have scored 12 goals in their previous three games. Tottenham’s latest win was a 4-0 success on the road against Aston Villa. Heung Min Son was in excellent form at Villa Park, as he scored an excellent hat-trick.
The second half of the season has been largely disappointing for Brighton & Hove Albion, as they have failed to build on the strong start to the season that they made. They are currently eleventh in the league standings, but a second straight victory this weekend could see them end the weekend in the top half of the standings.
Brighton enjoyed a famous win last weekend, and will be looking for a historic quickfire North London double. Their win last weekend came at the Emirates, as they dented Arsenal’s hopes of a top four finish with a 2-1 success. The Seagulls goals in the win were scored by Leandro Trossard and Enock Mwepu.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton Head to Head
Tottenham have picked up victories in four of the previous six fixtures that they have played against Brighton. The Seagulls are yet to win away against Spurs, with both their victories coming in home fixtures. Their most recent home win was a 1-0 success in January 2021.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton Prediction
Brighton confidence will be high after their win against Arsenal last weekend. However, Tottenham have looked incredibly strong in their recent fixtures, and it would be hard to bet against them maintaining their run of victories in front of their home fans on Saturday.
