Brighton vs. Tottenham EPL Betting Tips & Free Bets
We have Brighton vs. Tottenham EPL Betting Tips & Free Bets for the big English Premier League game this weekend.
The Premier League weekend kicks off with Tottenham Hotspur travelling to Brighton & Hove Albion as they look to recover from their mid-week mauling against Bayern Munich.
Meanwhile, Brighton will be hoping to rediscover their early season form and remove any lingering concerns that they will be in a relegation scrap.
Brighton had started the season in excellent form with a convincing 3-0 win at Watford. However, they haven’t won since that match and are flirting dangerously with the relegation places.
Since that opening weekend, they have only picked up three points in their six outings and have lost three times. Graham Potter is attempting to overhaul how the Seagulls play completely, and that has been detrimental to the goals that they have given away over recent weeks.

It was certainly the reason why they fell to Chelsea last weekend, as Lewis Dunk was caught on the ball when they were trying to pass out from the back.
Dunk brought down Mason Mount for the Chelsea penalty, which was subsequently scored by Jorginho before Willian added a second later in the half.
Potter is unlikely to change his style of play, but they will need to make fewer mistakes if they are going to get a second win of the season.
Tottenham Spurs Form
Spurs meanwhile have had a nightmare of a week. They lost 7-2 against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night despite being ahead midway through the first half.
This was their biggest ever home defeat, and there will need to be a response. Their performances this season have flattered to deceive, and the pressure on Mauricio Pochettino is beginning to mount.

They won last time out in the league, but they were also caught napping on the ball when trying to pass out from the back.
This time it was Hugo Lloris, who smashed his clearance straight at Danny Ings for the Southampton equaliser. Harry Kane quickly restored their lead, but it was very much a case of Spurs hanging on.
They will need to play much better at the Amex to get all three points.

Tottenham can’t afford to lose more ground on the top four, and they will have to put in a good performance to get the fans back on their side.
Brighton’s form would be a concern, and Spurs will be expected to make it a second defeat in a row for the Seagulls.
