An own goal from England international Jake Livermore put Brighton & Hove Albion ahead, but striker Karlan Grant managed to equalize for the Baggies late in the second half.

Tottenham vs Brighton: Prediction
Tottenham Hotspur have strengthened exceptionally well in the transfer window gone by, and have a deep squad to deal with various competitions.
However, the loss to Antwerp will hurt, and manager Jose Mourinho has indicated that some players might be running out of opportunities to establish themselves in the first XI.
Brighton & Hove Albion, on the other hand, have not been fortunate in the English top-flight. Despite good performances, results have not gone their way, and manager Graham Potter will hope that his side’s luck turns around.
Tottenham Hotspur will field a strong XI on Monday, and should be able to emerge victorious given the quality of the squad.
