Having been battered by Bayern Munich, can Spurs bounce back against Brighton? Opta gives their statistical verdict.

"Christian Eriksen has provided 19 assists for Harry Kane at Spurs in the Premier League and could become just the fifth player to provide 20+ for a single player in the competition, after Frank Lampard for Didier Drogba (24), Darren Anderton for Teddy Sheringham, Steve McManaman for Robbie Fowler and David Silva for Sergio Agüero (all 20)."

Kane is [1.98] to score.

Brighton are winless in all four of their Premier League meetings with Spurs (W0 D1 L3), losing both matches last season. The draw is [3.8].

Spurs haven't lost against Brighton since April 1983 when they were beaten 2-1 in a top-flight fixture - they've won five and drawn one of six matches against the Seagulls in all competitions since then. Tottenham are [2.0] to win.

Brighton haven't led for a single minute in any of their four Premier League matches against Spurs, with their two goals both coming in matches when they were trailing. Tottenham are [3.2] to win half-time/full-time.

Brighton have lost just one of their last 19 league matches in October (W10 D8 L1), losing 2-0 away at Arsenal in 2017. A Brighton win is [4.1].

Starting with a 1-2 defeat to Burnley on February 23rd 2019, Tottenham Hotspur have won just 22 points in their last 19 Premier League matches. 12 teams have won more than them in their last 19 matches, including Bournemouth (23) and Newcastle United (25).
