Brighton vs Tottenham PREVIEW & PREDICTION 17/04/2018


In order to add a victory that allows him to break a poor run of results, on Tuesday the Brighton team waits for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur, at stake to be played at The American Express Community Stadium in Falmer, in game corresponding to the 35th day of the English Premier League.


Those led by Chris Hughton have not been doing well in their last games, so the Seagulls were defeated last weekend by 3-2 in their visit Crystal Palace and with it added a streak of four games without a win where three of them they were defeats, results that complicate a little the aspirations of maintaining one more season in the Premier League, since now the difference with the red zone is seven points and for a change four of the last five games for the end of the season are against the Top 4 teams of the Premier as Spurs, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool, while the other game is against a Burnley who is in an excellent moment winning each of his last five games, so they hope that in these last dates can add at least three points that allow you to relax in the Premier League.


Meanwhile, those led by Mauricio Pochettino come from suffering a tough defeat at home by 1-3 to Manchester City and thus ended an unbeaten streak of 14 games in the Premier League, despite this results the Spurs remain calm in the fourth box with 67 points and a difference of seven points over Chelesa, with which they have practically secured the last place for the UEFA Champions League and more when the last five games of the season are against accessible teams and to vary three of them they will play at home. But despite this the Spurs seek to ensure once their presence in the European Champions League and focus on their participation in the FA Cup where in a few days will face Manchester United in the semifinals and the idea is to end the season by raising a trophy.

Tuesday’s game will be the first visit of Tottenham Hotspur to Brighton in the last 25 years, the last opportunity was given on April 2, 1983 and the win favored Brighton 2-1, in what has also been the only triumph of the gulls as a local in official confrontations against the Spurs.
