Brighton Preview – Can Brighton pull away from bottom three?

15th placed Brighton continue to flirt with the bottom three and the relegation zone as The Seagulls have failed to win any of their last 5 matches overall in the Premier League and the south coast club have picked up just 1 win out of their last 10 matches in the top flight.

That win came in the shape of a 2-0 home win against Bournemouth, but otherwise, Brighton have tended to deal in either draws or defeats in recent times which has seen them take residence in the bottom half of the division and just 2 points above third from bottom club, West Ham, prior to this weekend’s action.

Turning to results at home and these have generally been pretty reasonable for Brighton under manager, Graham Potter, as the hosts have lost just 3 of their 12 matches at their AMEX Stadium to date, but Potter’s remit of bringing attacking football to the AMEX has been a challenge.

An overall home record of 4-5-3 16/13 looks reasonable enough, but 9 of Brighton’s 12 matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Watford Preview – Can Watford avoid third defeat on trot?

After seemingly being down and out and just playing out time before being relegated, Watford staged a remarkable recovery under their third manager this season, Nigel Pearson, as The Hornets produced an encouraging 6-match unbeaten run in the Premier League.

This impressive turnaround in form resulted in wins against Manchester United, Aston Villa, Wolves and Bournemouth as well as picking up points in draws with Sheffield United and Tottenham, but the visitors are in danger of undoing all of their previous hard work.

Watford head into this clash down on the south coast having suffered back-to-back defeats to Aston Villa and Everton in 2-1 and 3-2 defeats respectively, and although they’re so close to pulling themselves out of the bottom three, these recent losses may start the alarm bells ringing once again.

Watford possess a poor looking away record of 2-3-7 10/22 and goals have been hard to come by too as 8 of Watford’s 12 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals, despite their earlier 8-0 mauling at the hands of Manchester City.
