Brighton v Tottenham Betting Preview
Venue: Amex Stadium
Channel: Sky Sports
Brighton come into the game with 35 points on the board and are out to as big as 8/1 to be relegated, with this likely to be deemed as a successful season as long as survival is secured in their first Premier League season. The Seagulls have picked 25 of their 35 points at home and have only lost once in their last 6 games at the Amex in all competitions. Whilst their home form is impressive they have not managed a win since the 4th March when they beat Arsenal and their latest game saw them lose 3-2 to relegation rivals Crystal Palace.
Tottenham head into this game on the back of a 3-1 defeat to the now champions Man City. That however was only their second defeat in the last 20 games in all competitions whilst they are unbeaten in their last 12 away games. Spurs are now a 1/100 shot to finish in the top 4 with their main focus likely to come in the FA Cup. That should be no excuse for a slip up though with Harry Kane still in the hunt for the Golden Boot while they also have an opportunity to finish second place after Man United slipped up against West Brom on Sunday.
Davy Propper is suspended for the home side while Steve Sidwell is sidelined with an injury.
Toby Alderweireld could be welcomed back to the squad after recovering while Pochettino could make some changes to the side that lost to Man City.
Possible Brighton Starting Eleven: Ryan; Scheletto, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Knockaert, Stephens, Kayal, Izquierdo; Gross, Murray.
