Brighton Prediction – Can Brighton avoid third defeat on trot?

Graham Potter’s side seemed to be building up a nice sequence of matches without defeat recently as The Seagulls registered a vital 2-1 win away from home at Arsenal which was followed by points picked up in draws with Wolves and Crystal Palace, both in 1-1 stalemates.

However, Brighton have since fallen to back-to-back defeats either side of Christmas with a 1-0 loss at home to ‘away specialists’ Sheffield United and Boxing Day’s 2-1 defeat at Tottenham, so Saturday’s hosts in this lunchtime clash with Bournemouth will no doubt be keen to stem the flow of losses here.

Brighton have also lost 2 of their last 3 matches on home turf at their AMEX Stadium with recent losses incurred against Leicester City and Sheffield United but it should be noted that both of these teams sit in the top seven of the Premier League.

A home record of 3-3-3 12/11 suggests Brighton have more or less held their own though at home this season and having beaten Tottenham 3-0, Everton 3-2 and Norwich City 2-0, The Seagulls should be able to get something here.

Bournemouth Prediction – Can Bournemouth build on Arsenal point?

A creditable point in their Boxing Day 1-1 draw at home with Arsenal should give Bournemouth plenty of encouragement as they prepare to make this trip along the south coast to face Brighton in this Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.

However, although The Cherries earned a decent point in that result against The Gunners, the fact remains that Bournemouth have managed just 1 win out of their last 8 matches, which was a surprising 2-0 win away from home at 4th placed Chelsea – go figure!

6 defeats within this last 8-match period suggest that Bournemouth can’t be trusted to register all three points at Brighton even though they’ve actually picked up more wins on the road than at their Vitality Stadium so far this season.

An away record of 3-1-5 10/12 includes just 1 win out of their last 6 matches on their travels, 4 of which were defeats at Arsenal, Newcastle United, Tottenham and Crystal Palace. The visitors have gained just 5 wins out of their last 23 matches on the road in the Premier League.


Key-Facts – Brighton vs Bournemouth

  • Brighton have lost 2 of their last 3 matches on home turf in the EPL
  • Bournemouth have lost 6 of their last 8 matches overall in the EPL
  • Bournemouth have gained just 5 wins out of their last 23 matches on the road


Betting Tips Verdict

Brighton have been quite steady at home this season and look the more likely to take the points against Bournemouth.
