Tottenham Hotspur come home after a disappointing trip to Belgium, while Brighton Hove Albion come to London after drawing West Brom, who luck is about to change?
Tottenham Hotspur have at times been incredibly good this season, such as their 11 goals in two matches at St. Mary’s and at Old Trafford; other times, they have not been as good, maybe even unlucky – see the dropped points from winning positions in the Newcastle and West Ham United matches. Likewise, Brighton were excellent winning on the road at Newcastle 3-0 and fought hard in a 4-2 loss at Everton – who also beat Tottenham.
While a draw against Palace seemed to right the ship, as Spurs win at Burnley had done; both teams then lost momentum dropping points in matches they should have each won. First Burnley draw at home to newly promoted West Brom, while Tottenham fell in Belgium to Royal Antwerp in Europa League. With those lost opportunities, we have two teams looking to jump start their seasons for different reasons, but both seeking the same result, three points.
What has been the story of the Brighton season thus far and what should we look for heading into the match Sunday evening in north London at the Seagulls take on Spurs at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium? Read on to catch up on Brighton, Spurs, and their recent history.
