Tottenham v Brighton Premier League predictions: tips, odds & team news
Tottenham will be hoping to continue their Premier League top four push when they host Brighton on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).
Tottenham vs Brighton odds
*Odds correct as of 20:35 on February 9
There are 15 games left to go in the 2023/24 Premier League season and Tottenham will be content with their position. Ange Postecoglou’s side are currently fifth, just two points outside the top four. Although there will be a sense of what could have been, given Tottenham had led the table in the early stages, this is still a decent position to be in in Postecoglou’s first season. Tottenham are unbeaten in their past four games since a 4-2 defeat to Brighton, winning two and drawing two.
Brighton, meanwhile, suffered a little after that victory. The Seagulls have slipped down the table and although they only sit three places below Tottenham, a massive nine points separate the two. It hasn’t been a good period of Brighton as they tried to build on an impressive finish last season. Roberto De Zerbi’s men recently went winless in three, with a pair of goalless draws followed up by that 4-0 defeat to Luton. However, they did bounce last time out to beat Crystal Palace 4-1.

Tottenham vs Brighton match tip
Pascal Groß pulled the strings for Brighton in their 4-1 win over Crystal Palace last time out. The German recorded two assists, setting up Lewis Dunk’s opener and Facundo Buonanotte for Brighton’s third, taking his tally for the season to eight. That’s enough to sit him third in the last of top assist-makers in the Premier League this season, behind only Ollie Watkins and Kieran Trippier.
Tottenham vs Brighton Bet-Builder tip
Richarlison scored twice against Everton last time out, continuing his good run in the Premier League. The Brazilian has now scored nine goals in his last eight Premier League games, and has more than any other player in the league since the start of December. Tottenham have also been on a fantastic scoring run, having found the net in each of their last 35 Premier League games. Tottenham may expect to edge a close corner contest, averaging 5.7 per game in the Premier League this season compared to Brighton’s 5.09.
