Writing this before preseason has started, the result seems, as Kevin Bacon says “a no brainer”. On one side you have the newly promoted Seagulls and on the other Spurs, the team that proved themselves to be the second best in the country.

Not only did Tottenham finish second they scored the most goals (80 in the league), conceded the fewest (26 in the league) and (massive surprise here) had the best goal difference (+60). On top of that they have the league’s top scorer in Harry Kane to make Albion’s day all the darker. As if to rub salt into the wound their home form was also the best in the Premier league: they dropped a miserly 4 points at home as they went unbeaten at White Hart Lane.
It’s the last three words of the last paragraph that mean Kev’s “no brainer” may not be as straight forward as some would think. Having played their final game at The Lane Spurs are now squatting at Wembley for the 2017/18 season. Same as they did for their Champions League home games last season. It’s this information that should make Albion’s fan’s hearts lighten somewhat.
In the four games that Tottenham played at Wembley Stadium last season they came away empty handed three times (Monaco and Leverkusen beat them in the Champions League, and Chelsea beat them in the FA Cup semi final). On top of all that they have to deal with the new stadium settling in period that scuppered the first half of West Ham’s season last year. If Tottenham carry over last year’s Wembley form to the new season then maybe the Seagulls can swoop in and take away an impressive win. I guess we’ll have to sea, sea, sea(siders) what the evening brings as Albion visit the new Wembley for the first time.
