After a tormenting week in their Champions League action against Bayern Munich, Tottenham returns this weekend to face Brighton in their Matchday 8 Premier League action. Tottenham lost 2-7 Bayern Munich in what is perceived as their worst defeats in recent history. But like a phoenix, they are likely to arise from that defeat and continue with their impressive Premier League action against Brighton. This match will be played on Saturday 5th October 2019 from 12:30 GMT at the Amex Stadium.
Brighton had a slow start to the season and things have not improved for them yet. With 7 games played so far, the Seagulls have had no clear winner. They are just seated at the danger zone of the Premier League table ahead of the Spurs visit. They come into the match after their last week’s 2-0 loss to Chelsea.
Tottenham, on the other hand, is eager to regain their spot among the top 4 in the premier league table. At number 6, they share the same number of points with numbers 7, 8 and 9 while they are one point less of numbers 4 and 5. The Spurs did well in their premier league matchday 7 in their hard-fought 2-1 win over Southampton. However, they come into the match without their full-back, Serge Aurier who is serving a suspension due to foul play.
Despite their slow start to the season, the capital club has shown strong signs of improvement. With the likes of Harry Kane and company, Tottenham seem more of a team for the Seagulls. Taking all factors into consideration, we believe there is a big value for our money to bet on the visitors.
