Tottenham vs Brighton prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out today?

Tottenham host Brighton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium today looking for a win to strength their top-four push.

Antonio Conte’s side have won their last four league games, beating Aston Villa 4-0 on Saturday thanks to a hat-trick from Son Heung-Min.

Brighton travel to London on the back of a 2-1 win away to Spurs’ North London rivals Arsenal. A much needed victory for Graham Potter’s team who were seven games without a win before kick-off.

A win for Spurs would create a six-point cushion above Arsenal in the battle for fourth, with the Gunner’s playing Southampton later in the day.

Here is everything you need to know.

Prediction

Spurs have won all four of their previous Premier League home games against Brighton. Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Dejan Kulusevski are linking up just at the right time for Antonio Conte, in his push for the top-four. Despite Brighton’s recent win against Arsenal, Spurs’ attacking options should have too much for the Seagulls. Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 Brighton
