Tottenham benefitted from a VAR error which saw the Seagulls have two goals ruled out to stretch their unbeaten run to four games.

The north Londoners now welcome a second side from the south coast, with Bournemouth moving three points clear of the relegation zone following a 1-0 victory over Leicester.

But Tottenham are in as equal need for a win as the Cherries, languishing three behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

  • Harry Kane’s Premier League goals have been worth 22 points to Tottenham this season, the highest of any player in the division. In Premier League history, only Gareth Bale in 2012-13 (24) and Kane himself in 2014-15 (24) have earned more points with their goals for Spurs in a single campaign.
  • Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored in 20 different Premier League games in 2022-23, more than any other player (Erling Haaland 18), and his most ever in a season (19 in 2017-18). Only five players have ever scored in more separate matches in a single campaign in the competition, most recently Mo Salah in 2017-18 (24).
  • Tottenham’s Son Heung-min became the first ever Asian player to score 100 Premier League goals with his strike against Brighton last time out. No player has scored more often from outside the box than the Korean this term, with three of his seven strikes so far coming from distance.
