Tottenham vs Brighton: Top free betting tips

Tottenham will be out for revenge when they face Brighton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, 10 February. The Lilywhites were well beaten 4-2 when the sides met at the Amex Stadium in December but need a win on Saturday as the battle for the top four heats up. Our Tottenham vs Brighton prediction is for a highly entertaining score draw in North London with both teams capable of playing exciting football.

Match result prediction: Draw

While Tottenham are a better team than Brighton, they are stylistically a great opponent for the Seagulls as their high line and aggressive press play perfectly into Roberto de Zerbi's setup. This was proven in December when Brighton found themselves 4-0 up against Spurs and they should have similar joy on Saturday, however, you'd expect Spurs to give more themselves at home and with key players back fit. What's more, Brighton have drawn more games than any other side in the Premier League this season.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals

This is a fixture that screams goals. Brighton are at their best when playing through a press and into space, something Spurs will give them the opportunity to do unless Postecoglou dramatically changes his approach for this one. Both teams have been amongst the goals recently, too, with Spurs scoring ten goals in their last four league matches and Brighton scoring 4+ goals in three of their last five outings. The most recent Tottenham vs Brighton H2H covered this market as six goals were scored.

Correct score prediction: Tottenham 2-2 Brighton

This scoreline has been a popular one for Tottenham in recent times with Postecoglou's men enjoying a 2-2 draw with Everton last weekend and another one with Manchester United in January. Meanwhile, for Brighton, draws have been popular all season and another one here would represent a positive result for them away at Tottenham.

Tottenham vs Brighton team news

Tottenham predicted lineup vs Brighton

Tottenham could be back to full strength on Saturday with Son Heung-Min and Yves Bissouma both returning from international duty after South Korea were eliminated from the Asian Cup and Mali were eliminated from AFCON. Their returns mean the only absentees for Spurs this weekend are Manor Solomon and Ryan Sessengnon – two players who wouldn't ordinarily be in the starting eleven. The biggest debate will be around what Postecoglou does with Timo Werner now that Son is back.

Vicario – Porro, Van de Ven, Romero, Udogie – Sarr, Bentancur, Maddison – Son, Richarlison, Kulusevski

Brighton predicted lineup vs Tottenham

Brighton will also welcome back a star player from international duty as Kaoru Mitoma is available again following Japan's elimination from the Asian Cup. Simon Adingra remains away with Ivory Coast at AFCON, though, as the Elephants have reached the final. Ansu Fati could make his first start since returning from injury, too, but Enciso, March, Veltman and Milner all remain unavailable due to various different injuries.

Verbruggen – Hinshelwood, Van Hecke, Dunk, Estupinan – Gross, Gilmour – Mitoma, Pedro, Fati – Ferguson
