Brighton vs Tottenham Match Preview
Brighton will be looking to come out of their winless rut when they take on a Tottenham side that is chasing second spot in the Premier League. This Brighton vs Tottenham fixture will be played at The Amex Stadium in Brighton on Tuesday, April 17, so check out our Brighton vs Tottenham prediction and betting tips.
The weekend match saw Brighton slip to a shocking 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace, which was their fifth winless game in all competitions (D1, L4). There are no dangers yet because they enter this Brighton vs Tottenham Hotspur seven points above the bottom three. They are 13th in the table after playing 33 games (35 pts, W8, D11, L14) and are still a couple of wins away from securing that magic 40-point mark. They are by no means a drop candidate, but their fixture list is not too kind to them. The Seagulls have to play all the top four in their remaining five games, which puts considerable doubt on their chances. Their home form is not so bad with three wins in their last five matches (W3, D1, L1). Can they come out of their rut and pick some points?
It won’t be easy for Brighton, though, as Tottenham are chasing the second spot in the league. Having blown away a great chance to put pressure on Manchester United and Liverpool by losing 3-1 at home to Manchester City in the weekend, Spurs will look to pick up their form with a win in this Brighton vs Tottenham Hotspur fixture. Spurs have won seven of their last nine competitive fixtures and are in cracking form, despite the reverse against City. With an FA Cup semi-final against United looming large for next weekend, Mauricio Pochettino may look to rest some of his regulars. However, getting back to winning ways is more important for the side and that may mean bad news for the hosts.

Brighton vs Tottenham Prediction
The hosts may have had a thriller against Crystal Palace in the weekend, but this one promises to be a high-scoring game. More so because the visitors have an upcoming FA Cup encounter next weekend to contend with. If you are looking for a specific player to find the back of the net, Harry Kane could be the one to back as he looks to reduce the gap to Mohamed Salah in the rush to golden boot.
