Michael Owen is backing Tottenham Hotspur to get back to winning ways in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory at Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.

The Lilywhites head into the game looking to bounce back from the disappointment of their 3-1 loss to Liverpool FC in north London last week.

Tottenham have been in decent form in recent weeks but they currently find themselves outside of the top four and have won only two of their last five games in the top flight.

Jose Mourinho will be eager for his side to return to winning ways on Sunday when they travel to the south coast to take on a Brighton side who are currently in 17th place in the table.

Brighton have struggled to find consistent form in recent weeks and currently find themselves just above the drop zone, after having won just one of their last five games.

Former Liverpool FC and Manchester United star Owen is fully expecting to see Spurs return to winning ways with a victory at Brighton on Sunday.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Tottenham were outplayed for most of their match against Liverpool on Thursday night.

“However, they almost got off to a perfect start when Son’s goal was chalked off by VAR – so who knows what might have been.

“Brighton have made a marked improvement since the turn of the year and there is little doubt that they can cause most Premier League sides problems.

“That said, one player that has caught my eye in recent weeks is Tanguy Ndombele. He seems to be playing a little further forward and that has seen a huge uplift in his shots and goals.

“With Harry Kane a doubt, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him scoring in a narrow win for Spurs.”

Tottenham are back in Premier League action with a clash against Chelsea FC at home on Thursday night.
