Brighton & Hove Albion are a patchy and imprecise lot altogether. They’ve only won 8 Premier League games so far this season and their modest list of victims reads like a Who’s Who of bottom- feeders. In no particular order, West Ham, Watford, Swansea City (twice), West Brom, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and of course more recently, Arsenal.
When faced with anyone genuinely good, they have folded like the proverbial deckchair. We beat them 2-0 back in December and this was a game of note as not only Heung-Min Son scored, but Serge Aurier also added this memorable golazo!
The form book for this leaves little to the imagination. Tottenham’s inability to show up against Manchester City isn’t suddenly grounds for Brighton to ‘get something’ from tomorrow evening’s trip down to the coast.
That’s one loss in the last fifteen, not the fall of Western Civilisation.
According to the Premier League website, Brighton’s Star Man is someone called Dale Stephens who has 89 tackles to his name.
I predict an emphatic win and some good old fashioned pillaging from our valiant boys.
Spurs to win by 3 goals to nil.
