Brighton Prediction

Brighton will come into this 4th round FA Cup tie in reasonable spirits despite losing their last two matches on the trot, as the hosts look to book their place in the 5th round and gain some welcome additional funds for the club’s bank balance.

The two defeats were in tough fixtures against Premier League leaders Liverpool where they lost 1-0 at home and against a rejuvenated Manchester United outfit, losing 2-1 at Old Trafford. Nevertheless, Brighton had previously picked up points against the teams around them in the league recently with wins against Everton and Bournemouth, as well as drawing with Arsenal and West Ham.

The Seagulls have lost just twice in their last eight home matches in all competitions which were to two of the ‘Big 6’ clubs, Chelsea and Liverpool but had recorded wins against West Ham, Wolves, Crystal Palace and Everton.

Brighton registered a resounding 3-1 win away at Bournemouth in the 3rd round.

 

Key-Facts – Brighton v West Brom

  • Brighton have lost just twice in their last eight home matches in all competitions
  • Brighton registered a resounding 3-1 win away at Bournemouth in the 3rd round
  • West Brom have kept just 2 clean sheets from their 14 away matches

 

West Brom Prediction

West Brom find themselves just three points behind the automatic promotion spots in the Championship and are still in the FA Cup thanks to a 3rd round 1-0 home win over Wigan Athletic at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies are in good form overall too as they’ve lost just once in their last 13 matches in all competitions which was a 2-1 defeat away at Blackburn Rovers, while their results and form away from home have been very good in recent weeks.

West Brom have won five of their last six matches on the road with wins gained at Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Sheffield United, Rotherham United and Bolton Wanderers, but they’ll face perhaps their biggest test yet on their travels when they make their way down to the south coast to face a stubborn and well organised Brighton outfit under manager Chris Hughton.

The west midlands club have been lauded by the media as one of the most entertaining clubs in the Championship as goals have never been far away where they’re concerned, but the downside to this is that West Brom have kept just 2 clean sheets from their 14 away matches in all competitions.

Betting Tips Verdict

Brighton are a well organised unit under Hughton and the hosts should edge past West Brom to progress to the 5th round.
