Tottenham Hotspur host Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon (15:00), looking to get back to winning ways after they were denied victory at Everton last weekend.

Jarrad Branthwaite's injury time header denied Spurs back-to-back victories for the first time in a month, and Ange Postecoglou will look for a response against the Seagulls.

Brighton head into this one off the back of a thumping 4-1 victory over rivals Crystal Palace as they responded from their 4-0 drubbing against Luton Town. They were 4-2 winners over Spurs in December and have instilled confidence back into their play in time for this meeting.

Both teams to score is valued at 2/5 and over 2.5 goals can be found at the same odds.

Team News

Tottenham could be boosted by the return of star man Son Heung-min this weekend, following South Korea's elimination from the Asian Cup. Yves Bissouma could also be in contention to play after returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon, Alfie Whiteman and Giovani Lo Celso are all out injured.

Brighton should have Kaoru Mitoma back under consideration following his return from the Asian Cup. Simon Adingra remains on AFCON duty.

Solly March, Julio Enciso and James Milner are sidelined through injury, while Joel Veltman is a doubt to feature.

Richarlison to score anytime @ 6/5

Richarlison has been a revelation for Tottenham this year. The Brazilian looks right at home in north London thanks to his excellent performances in recent months.

After scoring just one Premier League goal last year, he has more than made up for it this time around with 10 in 20 appearances this term. Nine of those goals have been scored in his last eight outings dating back to October, so he is one of the most in-form players in the division right now.

He haunted his former employers Everton with a brace last weekend and we don't see his scoring run slowing down against the Seagulls, who interestingly, were the one opponent in his recent run that he failed to score against.

Richarlison will see that as motivation to find the back of the net again on Saturday.

Over 3.5 goals @ EVS

Spurs have had a habit of delivering games with a lot of goals this season in the Premier League - 11 to be exact.

Their clash with Brighton on the south coast in December was one of them as they were beaten 4-2, and we fancy this contest to deliver in terms of goals once again.

The Seagulls put four past Palace last time out so they are no strangers to settling this market on their own. Neither are Spurs as they have scored at least four goals twice this term against Burnley and Newcastle United.

With the quality in attack that both sides possess, we could be in for another frantic end-to-end contest, and at EVS, we feel as though this market cannot be ignored.
