Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 14 Boxing Day league games (W11 D3), since losing 2-0 at Portsmouth in 2003 – extending their longest unbeaten run on December 26th.

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has never lost in eight Premier League games on Boxing Day (W6 D2), managing more games without defeat on the day than any other manager in the competition.

Brighton have lost five of their last six away league games played on Boxing Day (D1), including losing both such games in the Premier League (also 2-0 against Chelsea in 2017).

Dele Alli has been directly involved in more goals in all competitions under Mourinho than any other Tottenham player (five goals and three assists in eight appearances).

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored eight goals in five Premier League games on Boxing Day – only Robbie Fowler (nine goals in 10 appearances) has scored more on 26 December in the competition. Indeed, Kane has bagged 26 Premier League goals in the month of December – 10 more than he has in any other month in the competition.

Kane has now scored 100 home goals in 172 appearances in all competitions at club level, with 90 of those coming for Spurs (five for Millwall, three for Leyton Orient, two for Leicester City).

Pascal Gross has provided 15 assists for Brighton in the Premier League, eight more than any other Seagulls player in the competition.

Brighton defender Adam Webster has scored as many goals in his 15 Premier League games this season (three) as he netted in 44 Championship matches for Bristol City last term.
