Form: ------- Brighton LLLDL---------- Spurs WWWWL-------- (All Competitions)
Brighton won their last home league match against us, although it was in 1983 (2-1). In all competitions we have won each of our last three meetings with Brighton, scoring exactly twice each time.
We have won seven of our last 10 EPL games played on a Tuesday (W7 D1 L2). We are unbeaten in our last 34 EPL games against newly promoted opposition, winning the last 16 in a row. Only Chelsea have 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 we win this game , it will be the 12th different ground at which they have won an EPL game this season - more than in any other campaign in the EPL. We have won 33 points on the road in the EPL this season (W10 D3 L4), only Man City have earned more.
Since the start of 2014-15, Kane has scored 22 goals in 20 games against newly promoted sides. He has also scored a hatrick against one of them in each of the previous 3 seasons (Leicester in 2014-15, Bournemouth in 2015-16 and Hull in 2016-17.
Glen Murray hasn't scored in his last two home EPL games. He last went three without a goal at the Amex in the top flight in his first three appearances there this season.
Eriksen has scored five goals and provided three assists in his last six away games for us in all competitions.
