Brighton & Hove Albion faces Tottenham Hotspur at the American Express Stadium
Brighton & Hove Albion faces Tottenham Hotspur at the American Express Stadium in a game from the 8th round of the Premier League. The visitors are in a delicate situation right now, redarding their mental state, so we think it won’t be an easy one for them. Let’s check it out in our English Premier League predictions.
What we mean about Spurs’ mental state is the fact that just few days ago they conceded seven goals at their own stadium in the Champions League. The last season finalists met Bayern Munich at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and suffered a devastating 2-7 defeat. Nobody really expected such a crumbling from Spurs, but it seems that there are some real problems in the club’s dressing room.
Because of this humilation, some of Tottenham’s fans started to wonder if Mauricio Pochettino is really the right man for the job. At this moment Pochettino continues to manage the team, but right now he’s under a huge pressure.
In the Premier League Spurs are currently 6th in the league with 11 points won. They are just one point behind the fourth Arsenal, so a win against Brighton & Hove Albion could put them in a much better position.
Speaking of Brighton & Hove Albion, they are currently 16th in the league with just 6 points won so far. In their last five games in the league Brighton & Hove’s performance is pretty bad – two draws and three losses, just two points won so far.
In their last league game Brighton & Hove visited Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge and suffered a 0-2 loss. Graham Potter’s boys survived 50 minutes without conceding a goal, but at the end the Blues won this clash.
We think that it’s going to be curious to see how Tottenham will react to the disaster in the Champions League from few days ago. Against Brighton & Hove Albion they are favourites, but in our English Premier League predictions we will remind you that mental state is very important in football. Let’s see.
