Team Form ___ Brighton LDDLL ____ Spurs DLDWL (All Competitions)
Brighton are win less in all four of their Premier League (PL) meetings with us (W0 D1 L3), losing both matches last season. We haven't lost against Brighton since April 1983 when we were beaten 2-1 in a top-flight fixture. We have won 5 and drawn 1 of 6 matches against the Seagulls in all competitions since then.
Brighton havent led for a single minute in any of their 4 PL matches against us, with their 2 goals both coming in matches when they were trailing. The have lost just on eof their last 19 League matches in October (W10 D8 L1), losing 2-0 away at Arsenal in 2017.
Starting with a 1-2 defeat to Burnley on February 23rd 2019, we have won just 22 points in their last 19 PL matches. 12 teams have won more than us in their last 19 matches, including Bournemouth (23) and Newcastle United (25). We are win less in 9 PL away (D2 L7) since beating Fulham in January. They last went longer without a win on the road between April-December 2006 (10 games).
Brighton & Hove Albion have failed to score more than once in any of their last 15 PL home games - only Sunderland (28 between Dec 2002 - may 2006) and Huddersfield (24 between Mar 2018- May 2019) have had longer such runs in the competition.
Each of our last 9 PL goals have been scored before half time, with us last netting in the second half against Man City in our second match of the season. Eriksen has provided 19 assists at Spurs in the PL and could become the 5th player to provide 20+ for single player in the competition, after Lampard for Drogba, Anderton for Sheringham, McManaman for Fowler and Silva for Aguero ( all 20)
