Will Mauricio Pochettino inspire Spurs when they take on Brighton?

Can Spurs get back to winning ways when they travel to Brighton? Opta has the answers.

"Kane has scored a hat-trick against promoted sides in each of the previous three seasons (Leicester in 2014-15, Bournemouth in 2015-16 and Hull in 2016-17)."

Kane is 13/53.6 to score the first goal.

Brighton won their last home league match against Spurs, though it was back in April 1983 (2-1). They are 13/27.6 to win.

In all competitions, Spurs have won each of their last three meetings with Brighton, scoring exactly twice each time. Tottenham are 8/151.52 to claim another victory.

Tottenham have won seven of their last 10 Premier League games played on a Tuesday (D1 L2). The draw half-time/Spurs full-time double result is 7/24.5.

The Lilywhites are unbeaten in their last 34 Premier League games against newly promoted opposition, winning the last 16 in a row. Only Chelsea have ever had a longer unbeaten run against promoted sides in the competition (63, between 2001 and 2011). Spurs are 5/42.3 to win half-time/full-time.

Three of Brighton's four home defeats this season have been in games against 'big six' opposition. Tottenham are 13/82.62 to win to nil.

Should Tottenham win here, it will be the 12th different ground at which they've won a Premier League game this season - more than in any other campaign in the competition (also 11 in 2012-13 and 2013-14). Spurs are 14/53.8 to win both halves.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have won 33 points on the road in the Premier League this season (W10 D3 L4) - only league-leaders Man City have earned more. They are 8/19.0 to win from behind.

Since the start of 2014-15, Harry Kane has scored 22 goals in 20 games against newly promoted sides. Kane is 5/71.71 to score.

He's also scored a hat-trick against one of them in each of the previous three seasons (Leicester in 2014-15, Bournemouth in 2015-16 and Hull in 2016-17). Kane is 13/53.6 to score the first goal.

Glenn Murray hasn't scored in his last two home Premier League games - he last went three without a goal at the Amex in the top-flight in his first three appearances there this season. Murray is 5/23.5 to get back among the goals.

Christian Eriksen has scored five goals and provided three assists in his last six away games for Tottenham in all competitions. Eriksen is 12/53.4 to find the net.
