Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. and Tottenham Hotspur face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium.

Tottenham comes into this game sitting in 3rd place in the standings having picked up 17 points. Against Arsenal, Tottenham didn’t look good, giving up three goals and that led to the two-goal defeat. Harry Kane did score a goal in the 31st minute on a penalty, but they gave up two goals after that to be defeated. Emerson Royal did pick up a red card in the 62nd minute and won’t be able to go in this game. Japhet Tanganga, Lucas Moura and Dejan Kulusevski are all dealing with injuries, and they won’t be able to go in this game. Richarlison is expected to move into the starting lineup here, and is going to need to have a big game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Brighton, who sit in 4th place in the standings having picked up 14 points. Last Saturday, Brighton faced off against Liverpool, and they were able to secure a point with a 3-3 draw. Leonard Trossard scored in the 4th, 17th, and 83rd minute to force the draw. They had six shots on target and 46 percent of the possession. The defense showed some holes, but more important was how good the offense looked. Jakub Moder is still dealing with a knee injury, and he’s going to be out for an extended period of time. Outside of that injury though, this team is mostly healthy, and that is good news against a very good Tottenahm Hotspur team. 

Brighton has been one of the most surprising teams in the Premier League, and a big reason has been their success at home. The crowd is going to be fired up, and Tottenham’s defense has shown some holes this year. Look for Brighton to score at least two goals and that will be enough to get the job done. Back Brighton on the money line.
