Graham Potter’s Seagulls, who have been tough to beat this term, will be no pushovers, but the Villans are the slight favourites on home turf. Check out the latest odds and predictions.

Aston Villa Preview – Can the Villans avoid a sixth straight loss?

After five straight Premier League defeats, Dean Smith was relieved of his duties as Aston Villa manager. The club replaced Smith with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, who did a terrific job with Rangers during his time at Ibrox.

Villa have been dragged into a relegation scrap after taking zero points from the last 15 on offer. The Midlands club are just two points above the drop zone in 16th. The Villans have not won since picking up a memorable 1-0 victory at Manchester United on 25th September.

(odds taken 1022 GMT, Friday 19 November)

This will not be an easy game for Gerrard, but Villa will be looking for maximum points on home soil. The bookies have the home victory priced at 6/4.

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview – Can the Seagulls get back to winning ways?

Graham Potter’s Brighton & Hove Albion made a blistering start to their season, winning six of their opening seven in all competitions. After four wins, five draws and two defeats, Albion sit pretty in seventh place in the Premier League.

Brighton could do with a win, though, having not tasted a league victory since a 2-1 home success over Leicester City on 19th September. Since then, five of their following six in the Premier League have ended in draws.
