Michael Owen is tipping Tottenham Hotspur to win to nil against Brighton on Wednesday night.

Spurs made a much-needed return to winning ways in the Premier League at the weekend following Tottenham’s emphatic 5-1 win over Stoke City at Wembley.

Harry Kane scored twice in the second half following early goals from Ryan Shawcross’ own goal and Son Heung-min’s 20th-minute strike.

Denmark international Christian Eriksen polished off a 5-1 win to help Tottenham get their top-four challenge back on track.

Spurs lost to Arsenal and Leicester City as well as drawing with Watford and West Brom to see Tottenham drop down from third place to seventh spot.

Brighton have been in impressive form in the Premier League so far this season despite a 5-1 loss to Liverpool FC earlier this month.

Former Liverpool striker Owen is confident Tottenham will make it back-to-back victories in the Premier League.

“Brighton have never won at Wembley in three previous visits and it is hard to make a case for the Seagulls who have picked up just one point in their last four games and were no match for another of the newly-promoted clubs Huddersfield at the weekend,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Harry Kane’s brace against Stoke now means the striker has scored 50 goals this calendar year for club and country and the striker will be looking to add to that impressive tally when Chris Hughton takes his side to face his old club.”

Tottenham finished in second place in the Premier League table last term after ending seven points behind eventual champions Chelsea.

Spurs have beaten Liverpool FC this season but have lost to Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal this term.

Tottenham will make the daunting trip to unbeaten Premier League leaders Manchester City next weekend.
