Michael Owen reveals his prediction for Brighton v Tottenham
Michael Owen looks ahead to Tottenham's trip to Brighton this weekend
Michael Owen has warned Tottenham Hotspur to expect a difficult game when they travel to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League this weekend.
The Lilywhites are preparing to travel to The Amex looking to bounce back to winning ways after they suffered a disappointing 2-1 loss to Inter Milan in their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday night.
Spurs also suffered a disappointing 2-1 loss to Liverpool FC in their most recent Premier League game at Wembley last weekend as they took another blow to their title hopes this season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are now preparing for their Saturday evening trip to Brighton and Hove Albion as they look to try and get back to winning ways in the top flight.
And Owen feels that both teams will score in what will be a tough game for the north London side this weekend.
Writing in his column for Bet Victor, Owen said: “You have to go back to April 1983 for the last time Brighton beat Spurs and I expect a much-improved performance from Spurs than the one who played so poorly at Wembley last weekend.
“Mauricio Pochettino’s side conceded two late goals in the San Siro in the Champions League midweek.
“They must roll their sleeves up and show their mettle and quality at the Amex, but it won’t be easy against a side who have come from two goals down to take a point in their last two games.”
Tottenham are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after they ended up in third place in the table and without a trophy last term.
Spurs are still aiming to win their first trophy under Pochettino.
