Brighton Preview – Can Brighton pick up rare win?

Having picked up just the two league wins to date in this season’s Premier League campaign, Sunday’s hosts, Brighton, will know that they have a great opportunity to pick up an important three points when they entertain rock-bottom Sheffield United at the AMEX Stadium.

Brighton have failed to win any of their last four matches in the top flight following defeats to Southampton and Leicester City but they’ve also picked up points in draws with Liverpool and Fulham, but The Seagulls have found wins at home hard to come by.

Indeed, Brighton have failed to win any of their last 10 matches at home so the straight win markets may be risky but the lack of goals may be a better option especially as four of the previous six meetings against Sheffield United have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Sheffield United Preview – Can Blades halt losing streak?

Sheffield United bring a miserable eight-match losing streak down to the south coast when they prepare to face a stubborn Brighton outfit at the AMEX Stadium as The Blades can’t seem to take a trick at the moment.

The visitors have managed to muster up just a measly point for their efforts so far this season which was thanks to a 1-1 draw at home with Fulham, but Sheffield United are already in danger of being cast adrift at the bottom of the Premier League as they trail fourth from bottom Burnley by a margin of nine points.

Every game is now becoming a ‘must-win’ for Chris Wilder’s side but having already lost their opening six away matches on the trot, an away win here may seem out of reach; however, the visitors stand a good chance of grabbing at least a point here as Brighton aren’t expected to produce a deluge of goals.
