Comments:

League position: 5th Tottenham Hotspur remained unbeaten in their last 14 games in the Premier League played on Boxing Day (won 11). Spurs had now won five of their last eight home games in the Premier League (lost one). Harry Kane had now scored eight goals in five games in the Premier League played on Boxing Day; only Robbie Fowler had now scored more goals on this day in the competition's history (nine goals in ten games). Harry Kane scored after 24 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.

Comments:

League position: 15th Brighton and Hove Albion had now taken 31 points from their 37 games in the Premier League in 2019; fewer points than any other team that had been in the division throughout the year. Adam Webster had now scored three goals in his 15 appearances so far in this Premier League season; as manay as he scored in 44 appearances for Bristol City in the League Championship in the previous season. The Seagulls remained without a win in their last 11 games played on Boxing Day (lost seven).
