We have only lost on eof our 6 previous home league games against Brighton (W3 D2 L1), winning the last two by a 2-0 score line in December 1982 and December 2017.
Brighton are winless in their last five meetings with us in acompetitions, drawing one and losing four since 2-1 league win in April 1983.
We have won all three of our home games in all competitions since moving into our new stadium, scoring 7 goals and conceding none. We have lost 4four PL home games this season, just one fewer than we had lost at home in our three pervious PL campaigns combined. However five of our last six home defeats have been against "big six" opposition, with a 1-3 reverse against Wolves in December the exception. Noe of our last 67 PL games have ended 0-0 - the longest current such run in the division, and our longest ever run without a goalless draw in the competition.
Brighton have failed to score in their last five PL 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 ten of their PL away games against "big six" opponents, conceding 22 goals and scoring just once twice.
We haven't lost a Premier League home game on a Tuesday since August 2007 (1-3 vs Everton), winning seven and drawing one since then.
Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in his last home Premier League game, a 4-0 win against Huddersfield. He had only scored three goals in his previous 14 home games in the competition.
Brighton Manager Chris Hughton has only won one of his seven Premier League games managing against us, his old club as a player, a 1-0 win over Tim Sherwood's (another old Spurs player) side as Norwich boss in Feruary2014.
