Brighton & Hove Albion Recent form

Fans of Arsenal are well aware of Danny Welbeck’s ability to score crucial headers, as he did in the past against Leicester City during their title-winning season in 2015-2016. Last week, the 33-year-old repeated this feat at Selhurst Park, making a significant impact with his 82nd-minute goal. Although the circumstances were not as dramatic as before, Welbeck’s intervention was crucial in preventing Crystal Palace from securing victory over their long-standing rivals in the M23 derby. Jordan Ayew had earlier scored a header for Palace, putting them on the verge of victory, before Welbeck equalized for Brighton.

This draw meant that Brighton, despite showing improvement from their previous 2-0 defeat against Arsenal, remained in ninth place in the Premier League table. They are currently on a three-game winless streak. The break from Europa League matches over the next couple of months will be a relief for Brighton’s coach, Roberto De Zerbi, and his staff. They have only managed to win two league matches out of their last 12 while balancing domestic and continental competitions. Brighton’s defense has also been a concern, as they have gone 22 league matches without a clean sheet. Although their seven-game unbeaten home run in the Premier League provides some confidence, they have lost their last three matches of the year to London clubs, including defeats against Arsenal in 2020 and 2022, as well as Chelsea in 2021.


Tottenham Hotspur Recent form

The New Year signs are positive for Thursday’s guests, who hosted Everton at their home ground in North London last weekend. Tottenham had a strong start with goals from Richarlison and Son Heung-min in the first 20 minutes, putting them on track for a resounding victory.

However, Sean Dyche’s determined team fought back and Andre Gomes scored to reduce the deficit. Tottenham managed to hold on to their lead, with an effort from Arnaut Danjuma hitting the crossbar and Guglielmo Vicario before being cleared. Ultimately, Tottenham emerged victorious at the final whistle.

Manager Postecoglou praised goalkeeper Vicario for his performance, as he helped Tottenham withstand Everton’s attacking onslaught. This victory enabled them to move ahead of Manchester City and secure fourth place in the Premier League table, although Manchester City still has a game in hand.

Bournemouth is the only other team to have won their last three Premier League matches before Christmas. Tottenham will now aim to continue their winning streak and overcome their struggles from November by achieving something no previous Tottenham team has done: win three consecutive matches against Brighton.

In a game fourteen months ago, the Son-Kane partnership proved lethal and led Tottenham to a 1-0 victory over Brighton. Tottenham also won 2-1 on their home ground later that year, during Cristian Stellini’s unsuccessful tenure as manager, which ended with a controversial altercation on the sidelines involving Stellini and De Zerbi.

Our Experts Predict Winner of Brighton & Hove Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur

Brighton continues to show a tendency to both score and concede in the Premier League, making it possible for them to pose a threat to the Tottenham defense. Tottenham was fortunate to only give up one goal against Everton, particularly considering the uncertainty surrounding Romero’s fitness. Nonetheless, the Brighton medical team hasn’t had a break during the festive period, and considering De Zerbi’s team’s vulnerability in defense, Postecoglou’s players can respond with an aggressive approach to come out victorious.
