Luton v Brighton: Pick of the stats

  • Brighton have won each of their past three league games against Luton, including a 4-1 victory on the opening weekend of this Premier League season. It is their longest winning run against the Hatters.

  • After scoring in a club record 32 consecutive league games between March and December last year, Brighton have now failed to score in three of their last five. They could become the first top-flight team to start a calendar year with three consecutive 0-0 draws in the league.

  • Alfie Doughty has five assists in the Premier League this season – no other Luton Town player has more than two. All five of his assists have been from crosses, with four of the goals being headers.

  • No player has created more chances in the Premier League this season than Brighton’s Pascal Gross (55, level with Bruno Fernandes). Fourteen of these have been for Joao Pedro, with only Mohamed Salah (20 for Darwin Nunez) and Moussa Diaby (15 for Ollie Watkins) creating more for a single team-mate this term.
