Brighton vs Tottenham preview, betting tips and prediction: Can Spurs bounce back from defeat to Man City?
Tottenham to win with a -1 handicap @ 6/5 with Coral
It may not have been the best of seasons for Tottenham in comparison to previous ones under Mauricio Pochettino, but they are still in fantastic form right now. There has been no real title challenge, but they are clear in the race for the top four. Until Saturday evening, when they lost to champions elect Manchester City, they were unbeaten in 2018 and sit top of the recent form table. Their 14-match unbeaten run came to an end against the side that beat them before it started, and they will be hoping to return to form with a trip to Brighton on Tuesday night.
CORAL HAVE YOU COVERED!
Chris Hughton, a former Spurs player and coach, has done a superb job with the Seagulls, but he will know they need another point or two just to be certain of survival. Defeat to rivals Crystal Palace was disappointing, but the majority of their points have come at home this season; they will certainly be no pushovers for Spurs, but if Pochettino can get his players back at the level they were before the City game, particularly Harry Kane and Dele Alli, who struggled to make an impact at Wembley. We don’t envisage Brighton will get sucked into the relegation battle, but we don’t see anything other than a comfortable Spurs win.
Tottenham have been fantastic all year, with just one defeat to their name. They sit in fourth place in the Premier League, seven points above closest rivals Chelsea.

The loss at Crystal Palace on Saturday means Brighton need one more win at the most to secure their Premier League status, but they still have a seven-point buffer and sit 13th.
Neither side has any fresh injury concerns, but it is again unlikely that Toby Alderwiereld will play for Spurs.
