Brighton have lost both of their home games and were outscored 6-3. Brighton have been in the Premier League since 2018, West Brom were just promoted. The Seagulls have shown over the last two seasons that they can do just enough to gain points at stay up in the league.
West Brom should struggle on the road and fall to another defeat. Brighton are not much better in quality, but they are good enough to get all three points.
Result: Brighton to win
Burnley vs. Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur head into matchday 6 in red-hot form. They are unbeaten in five straight league games. Fans will point to their defensive capitulation on matchday 5, however, as the team conceded three goals in the second half versus West Ham to finish 3-3.
Burnley are 18th in the league. They have failed to win any of their opening four games. One point from 15 possible was taken by the Clarets. Spurs are a different class compared to Burnley. They are an expensively put together team with one of the coaches of the last generation in charge of them.
Tottenham Hotspur should win and the real question is: how many goals will they score? In one of the two games between the clubs last season, Spurs won 5-0.
Tottenham Hotspur should win against Burnley and goals could be scored by one of two star players. Heung-min Son has already tallied seven Premier League goals in five games. He averages a goal every 55.3 league minutes. Harry Kane has tallied five goals in five appearances, averaging a goal every 89.4 league minutes.
Result: Tottenham Hotspur and either Son or Kane to score anytime
