Match Preview

Despite falling to defeat on Sunday, Tottenham are odds-on to win their fifth Boxing Day match in a row. Each of Tottenham’s league wins under José Mourinho have seen Tottenham lead at the break with a cleansheet, while three of Tottenham’s four prior halves of Premier League (PL) H2H ‘home’ action have produced a 1-0 scoreline in their favour.
Against all opponents, the ‘Lilywhites’ have averaged exactly 2.0 first-half goals across their last three PL home wins. Potentially related to that, four of Tottenham’s five PL home wins this campaign have seen one player net a brace, though the last two of those braces saw the player in question net once either side of half-time.
Relevantly, Brighton have conceded exactly twice in at least one half in four of their five away defeats this term (the first half on the last two occasions). The last two of those losing road trips also saw the twin goals conceded in one half arrive within the opening 30 minutes.
The cleansheet theme is still scrutinised though, as Brighton’s last five away games (W1, D1, L3) have seen both teams score. A 60% majority (three) of those five games saw Brighton score first, only to be pegged back, and lose five of a possible nine points from the applicable matches.
Players to watch: Tottenham’s last two home wins have seen Moussa Sissoko net the team’s final match goal inside the 61st-75th minute period.
Brighton’s Neal Maupay opened the scoring in the last H2H within the first five minutes, and Brighton are yet to lose with him on the scoresheet.
Stat attack: Tottenham’s last four Boxing Day wins have seen them average 3.75 goals per-match.
Three of Brighton’s last four defeats have seen them lose the first half ‘to-nil’.
Four of the five prior PL H2Hs have each seen the first half produce under 1.5 goals.
