Tottenham Hotspur v Brighton betting tips – Spurs set for easy win
Harry Kane can play a starring role in tonight’s Capital One Cup against a struggling Seagulls team
October 29th, 2014
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has defended his team’s slow start to the season, claiming that the small White Hart Lane pitch is partly responsible for a mixed bag of results in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, Spurs have a winnable Capital One Cup match this evening when they face Brighton in front of their own supporters and can be backed at a best price 9/20 with bet365 to claim victory.
Tottenham have been Jekyll and Hyde in recent weeks, thrashing Asteras 5-1 in the Europa League and they also beat the in-form Southampton 1-0 although that has been offset by a 4-1 humbling at Manchester City and Sunday’s 2-1 reverse at the hands of Newcastle.
There was an element of smash and grab about the Magpies’ victory last weekend and it is doubtful that Brighton can manage something similar, with the Seagulls struggling for wins in the Championship.
Sami Hyypia has not seen his team win since a 3-0 victory at Burton in the last round of the Capital One Cup, with five of the last six matches ending in a draw and the Seagulls have scored in their last five games.
That is despite Sam Baldock failing to find the net since his move from Bristol City and it’s hard to see anything other than a home win tonight, with a Spurs win and both teams to score looking like the best call.
Harry Kane nabbed a hat-trick last week and the young forward can continue to outshine Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado at the Lane.
