Stat Attack: Brighton vs Spurs

Image: SpursWeb

Brighton won their last home league match against Spurs, though it was back in April 1983 (2-1)

In all competitions, Spurs have won each of their last three meetings with Brighton, scoring exactly twice each time.

Tottenham have won seven of their last 10 Premier League games played on a Tuesday (D1 L2)

The Lilywhites are unbeaten in their last 34 Premier League games against newly promoted opposition, winning the last 16 in a row. Only Chelsea have ever had a longer unbeaten run against promoted sides in the competition (63, between 2001 and 2011)

Three of Brighton’s four home defeats this season have been in games against ‘big six’ opposition

Should Tottenham win here, it will be the 12th different ground at which they’ve won a Premier League game this season – more than in any other campaign in the competition (also 11 in 2012-13 and 2013-14)

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won 33 points on the road in the Premier League this season (W10 D3 L4) – only league-leaders Man City have earned more.

Since the start of 2014-15, Harry Kane has scored 22 goals in 20 games against newly promoted sides

He’s also scored a hat-trick against one of them in each of the previous three seasons (Leicester in 2014-15, Bournemouth in 2015-16 and Hull in 2016-17)

Glenn Murray hasn’t scored in his last two home Premier League games – he last went three without a goal at the Amex in the top-flight in his first three appearances there this season

Christian Eriksen has scored five goals and provided three assists in his last six away games for Tottenham in all competitions.
