Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton & Hove Albion
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 November 2020
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Spurs have been one of the best teams in the league for the past several years, and this time around they have been even better.
The reason being, the domination of Liverpool and Manchester City seem to be wobbly at the moment, and this is kind of the perfect opportunity to make the move for Jose Mourinho. And so far, the Portuguese gaffer and his boys have risen to the occasion.
This weekend, they are pitted against the Seagulls, who have been one of the worst squads in the competition in 2020-21. In fact, it has been nothing unexpected, as Graham Potter’s men have been a bottom-tier team in the last few years.
On top of that, Mourinho’s men have a great h2h record against this rival in the past two decades, and particularly so at home.
As such, expect Tottenham to record another win this Sunday, and continue their crusade for the PL title.
Tottenham vs Brighton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two teams locked horns, Spurs recorded a 2-1 win.
- They have scored two or more goals in six of the preceding nine clashes.
- Since 2005, they have lost just once against this rival.

Tottenham vs Brighton: Prediction
Spurs posted a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Burnley. In the meantime, the Seagulls were held to a 1-1 draw at home by the 17th placed West Brom.
Going on, Mourinho’s men were unbeaten in 11 of their previous 12 overall matches, and in the process, they had recorded a 1-6 win at Old Trafford against Manchester United, and defeated Chelsea in the EFL Cup.
They have also lost just once in the league so far this campaign, and the defeat had come against current toppers Everton.
In fact, the loss against the Toffees have also been the only one in the past seven months. On the other hand, their counterparts are on a five-game winless run, and they conceded three or more goals in three of these fixtures.
They also were winless in 31 of their former 39 overall match-ups, and they remained so in 15 of their preceding 20 road trips.
On top of all that, they also have a 100% losing record on the road in h2h encounters in the past two decades.
As such, anticipate a Tottenham win at all cost this Sunday.
