Awful prediction:Chris Sutton now predicts who will win on Brighton v Tottenham

Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns in the Premier League on Thursday evening.

Roberto De Zerbi’s Seagulls host Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs at the Amex Stadium, with both sides eager to push on up the table.

Brighton are winless in their last three Premier League games and will hope to get back to winning ways against a resurgent Tottenham outfit.

Meanwhile, Spurs have won their last three, turning a corner following their poor run in wake of numerous injuries and suspensions.

Both Brighton and Tottenham have picked up fresh personnel worries. The hosts are without Kaoru Mitoma, who’s set to be out for up to six weeks with an ankle injury.

Meanwhile, the visitors are without Cristian Romero, who has a hamstring strain that is set to rule him out for around four to five weeks.

‘We will get some goals’

Chris Sutton, writing on BBC Sport, has predicted who will win the encounter between Brighton and Tottenham.

The pundit reckons the two teams will play out a five-goal thriller on the south coast, with Spurs getting over the line with a 3-2 victory.

“My first thought here is that we will get some goals,” wrote Sutton.

“Tottenham are still in the title race but they were slightly fortunate to hold on and beat Everton, and you just don’t know what you are going to get from Brighton at the moment – good or bad.

“The Seagulls have lost some of the spark they had last season but they have still only lost once at home in the Premier League and I can see them pushing Spurs all the way.”

Tottenham should have enough to get the better of Brighton – TBR View

Tottenham will no doubt be feeling confident after their return to winning form, but at the same time, they’ll once again have numerous key absences.

However, Spurs should have more than enough to get the better of the Seagulls. The likes of Emerson Royal and Ben Davies have deputised fairly well at the back, while the attack remains strong.

I reckon Tottenham will run out 2-1 winners on the south coast.
