Brighton vs Tottenham Prediction & Match Preview

Brighton vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 31 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.

Amex Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between Brighton and Tottenham. The Seagulls are determined to escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Spurs. 

The likes of Andone, Welbeck, Izquierdo, Jahanbakhsh, and Lamptey are all out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team. 

Jose Mourinho’s troops, on the other hand, aim to keep their title hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go for a win in the Amex Stadium clash.

As always, all eyes will be on duo Son – Kane, who have been scoring goals for fun in the 2020/21 Premier League season. 

In the first half of the season Tottenham defeated Brighton 2-1, and seeing that Spurs are on a three-game winning run on the road in all competitions, we are tempted to put our money on the capital club. Lo Celso remains in the recovery room for the visitors.

Team News:

Brighton will again be without the services of Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone, Tariq Lamptey, Danny Welbeck and Alireza Jahanbakhsh this weekend through injury, while Jason Steele is a doubt.

The Seagulls did not pick up any fresh issues against Fulham, though, and there is a chance that Potter could decide to select the same XI that took to the field against Scott Parker's side.

Neal Maupay could again be joined by Leandro Trossard in the final third of the field, although Aaron Connolly and Percy Tau are options for change in the attacking positions.

As for Tottenham, Kane will miss out with the ankle issues that he picked up against Liverpool, while Giovani Lo Celso and Sergio Reguilon have also been ruled out through injury.

Dele Alli is still struggling with a tendon problem, although it is unlikely that the Englishman will be involved even if he proves his fitness as a loan exit could be sanctioned before the end of the month.

Mourinho has already confirmed that Joe Rodon will keep his spot in the starting XI, but Toby Alderweireld and Lucas Moura are pushing for spots in the side.

Kane's absence could see Son Heung-min pressed into action through the middle, although Gareth Bale, Erik Lamela and Carlos Vinicius are also options for Mourinho, who could stick with a three-man defence.

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; White, Dunk, Webster; Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, Mac Allister, March; Trossard, Maupay

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Rodon, Dier, Alderweireld; Doherty, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Davies; Lucas, Son, Bergwijn
