Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 5-1 win over Stoke City, Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to climb to the Champions League berth in the Premier League standings when they welcome Brighton at Wembley Stadium. Harry Kane scored a brace in the crushing of the Potters and all eyes will be on the English attacker when Spurs face the Seagulls on Matchday 17. Mauro Pochettino’s men are after their fifth home win of the season, but the newcomers should not be underestimated. Brighton, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run in the English elite division to five games. Tottenham proved their worth in the 5-1 triumph over Stoke and seeing that coach Mauro Pochettino can count on key players for Wednesday’s football match, we predict that the capital club will give fans yet another reason for celebration.
Highlighted Player (Jan Vertonghen):
After spending four years at Ajax, in 2006 Jan Vertonghen signed a loan deal with RKC Waalwijk. The left-footed defender spent one season at Mandemakers Stadion and he returned to Ajax for the 2007/2008 season. The highly rated footballer, who is capable of playing as both centre back and left back, signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur on 8 July, 2012 and he has been playing for the Premier League outfit ever since. The Belgian defender scored four goals for the Spurs in the 2012/2013 Premier League season and he made 34 league appearances for the White Hart Lane outfit back then. In the 2015/2016 season Jan Vertonghen and his teammates were producing brilliant displays with Tottenham, but the Spurs eventually finished the campaign in third place in the standings. Speaking of his international career, Vertonghen made it to both World Cup (2014) and Euro (2016) quarter-finals with the Belgian national team. Jan was born on 24 April, 1987 and his shirt number is 5.
Highlighted Team (Brighton & Hove Albion):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion compete in the Premier League and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils.
Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname.
