Brighton Prediction – Can Brighton continue impressive start?

With 4 points gained from their first two matches of the new Premier League season, Brighton manager, Graham Potter, will be delighted with how his team have started this new top flight campaign as they look to extend their unbeaten start to three league matches.

Brighton bagged all three points in what seemed an unlikely 3-0 win away at Watford on the opening day of the season, but The Seagulls were value for that win and they followed that up with a good point at the AMEX Stadium with a 1-1 draw at home against West Ham.

Next to visit the AMEX Stadium are south coast rivals, Southampton, who have held the upper hand in previous meetings but they’ve made a poor start to this season, losing back-to-back matches in the early stages of this new term.

Back to Brighton, and before we get too carried away, we need to remember that The Seagulls have won just 1 out of their last 11 matches in the Premier League and have lost 6 of these. Interestingly though, Brighton have been involved in 4 draws in their last 7 matches.

Southampton Prediction – Can Southampton take south coast honours?

Back-to-back defeats away at Burnley 3-0 and a 2-1 loss at home to Liverpool wasn’t the start that Southampton manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl had in mind before the season kicked off, and he now takes his Southampton side along the coast to Brighton where the visitors will be looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot.

We can probably say that the honeymoon period is over where Hasenhuttl and Saints are concerned too as the visitors have now gone 7 league matches overall without a win, which includes 4 defeats and 3 draws.

With just 1 away win out of their last 8 away matches, Southampton’s results away from home aren’t much better either, but that one victory was achieved against Saturday’s opponents, Brighton, in a 1-0 win at the AMEX Stadium in the last meeting between these two sides.

The Saints have lost 3 of their last 4 matches on the road though, so even a point against Brighton would be a more favourable outcome than a third defeat on the trot. New signing, Che Adams, has yet to hit his straps and it could be a case of safety first for Hasenhuttl on Saturday as he looks to tighten things up.


Key-Facts – Brighton v Southampton

  • Brighton have been involved in 4 draws in their last 7 matches in the EPL
  • Southampton have won just 1 of their last 8 away matches in the EPL
  • 3 of the last 6 meetings between Brighton and Southampton have ended in draws


Betting Tips Verdict

Brighton have momentum behind them while Southampton will be desperate to avoid a third defeat on the trot. It’s also a relative local derby so the points could be shared here.
