Brighton & Hove Albion Preview – Will the Seagulls bounce back with three points?

Brighton & Hove Albion have done superbly well to keep themselves away from danger this season. In fact, the Seagulls have spent practically the entire campaign in the top half of the Premier League table. Overall, Albion have won seven, drawn 12 and lost six.

No team in the top tier have drawn more than Brighton this term, while only Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have suffered fewer defeats. However, the Seagulls have lost their last two, losing at Old Trafford before crashing to a shock 3-0 home reverse to Burnley last weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1009 GMT, Friday 25 February)

Brighton will be desperate to avoid a third straight league defeat on Saturday. Can Potter’s men strike back with a big three points on their own patch?

Aston Villa Preview – Can the Villans avoid a third straight reverse?

Aston Villa have improved under Steve Gerrard, with the Liverpool legend guiding the Villans to league wins over Brighton, Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Norwich City and Everton. However, like the Seagulls, Villa have also lost their last two.

Gerrard’s boys head to the Amex having taken just one point from the last nine on offer. After an enthralling 3-3 home draw with Leeds United at the start of the month, the Midlands club have crashed to disappointing back-to-back defeats to Newcastle United and Watford.

Back in November, Gerrard’s Aston Villa reign started with a 2-0 home victory over Brighton. Late goals from Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings did the damage in that one.

The Seagulls have struggled in this fixture in recent times, winning just one of the last 13. The last meeting at the Amex ended in a goalless draw back in February last year.
