Tottenham have only lost one of their six previous home league games against Brighton (W3 D2 L1), winning the last two by a 2-0 scoreline in December 1982 and December 2017.

Brighton are winless in their last five meetings with Tottenham in all competitions, drawing one and losing four since a 2-1 league win in April 1983.

Tottenham have won all three of their home games in all competitions since moving into their stadium, scoring seven goals and conceding none.

Tottenham have lost four Premier League home games this season, just one fewer than they’d lost at home in their three previous league campaigns combined.

None of Tottenham’s last 67 Premier League games have ended 0-0 – the longest current such run in the division, and Spurs’ longest ever run without a goalless draw in the competition.

Brighton have failed to score in their last five Premier League games – the longest current run in the competition, and the joint-longest such run in total this season (Southampton also five).

Brighton have lost all 10 of their Premier League away games against ‘big six’ opponents, conceding 22 goals and scoring just twice.

Spurs’ Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in his last home Premier League game, a 4-0 win against Huddersfield. He’d only scored three goals in his previous 14 previous home games in the competition.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton has only won one of his seven Premier League games against Tottenham (D3 L3), a 1-0 win over Tim Sherwood’s Spurs side as Norwich boss in February 2014.
