Brighton & Hove Albion Top-half Finish Odds: 5/4 odds taken 1706 GMT, Tuesday 28 June

Brighton & Hove Albion were one the Premier League’s surprise packages last season. Under the popular Graham Potter, who has been tipped to be the next England manager, the Seagulls finished in the top half of the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history. Repeating that feat will take some doing, but Albion are more than capable of doing so.

Brighton sold star man Yves Bissouma to Tottenham Hotspur this summer, so there will be funds available for Potter. They have already brought in Julio Enciso, but who else will be arriving at the Amex Stadium before the window slams shut?

In our in-depth Brighton 2022-23 Premier League preview, we check out any potential signings, the player to watch out for this season, and give you our predicted finish. We are also looking back on their excellent 2021-22 campaign.

2021-22 Review: Albion cause an upset

Brighton shocked many last season by finishing in the top half of the Premier League table for the first time ever. Potter’s troops made a stunning start, flirting with the UEFA Champions League spots in the early weeks. Albion kicked off their campaign with four wins from their opening five league matches.

They were incredibly tough to beat last season. In 2021, Albion lost just four league games and drew eight of ten at one point. They ended the campaign with only 11 defeats, with just Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea – the top three – suffering fewer losses. They were the draw specialists alongside rivals Crystal Palace.

Our betting prediction:
Brighton to draw with Man United

Brighton & Hove Albion Key Facts

  • Brighton finished in ninth last season
  • Only last term’s top three lost fewer games than the Seagulls
  • Until their promotion in 2017, Albion spent 34 years away from the top flight
  • The Seagulls were FA Cup runners-up in 1983


Brighton Transfer News: Will the Seagulls replace Bissouma?

The biggest bit of transfer news to come out of the Amex Stadium this summer is Bissouma’s move to Tottenham. The Mali international had several stellar seasons in East Sussex after arriving from Lille, and the 25-year-old midfielder certainly deserved a big-money move to one of the big boys. Marc Cucurella has been linked with Man City, while Jayson Molumby and Alex Cochrane have departed.

Brighton spent some of the £35m Bissouma money on Julio Enciso, who arrived in a £9.5m deal from Libertad Asuncion. Rangers man Glen Kamara has been heavily linked with the Seagulls, though they will have to beat several clubs to gain his signature.

2022-23 Key Fixtures: Albion travel to Old Trafford on opening weekend

Brighton kick off their 2022-23 campaign with a tough trip to Old Trafford to face Erik Ten Hag’s Man United. They then face European hopefuls Newcastle United and West Ham United in the next two.

Before the break for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the Seagulls host Aston Villa. They return to action on Boxing Day with a match at Southampton. On the final day of the 2022-23 season, Brighton take on Villa at Villa Park.

Who Are Brighton’s Biggest Challengers: Can Potter’s men break into the top half again?

Brighton had a very impressive 2021-22 season. Potter has done a superb job at the Amex Stadium since taking over, and the Seagulls were very hard to beat last term. They may have lost Bissouma to Spurs, but with the right business done in the transfer market, the Seagulls can be even stronger this season.

Albion finished in ninth position last term, and Potter will be looking to better that this time around. At the time of writing, the East Sussex club are priced at 5/4 for a top-half finish.

Crystal Palace Preview: Can the Eagles seal a top-ten finish?

Patrick Vieira had a fine first season at Crystal Palace. Before arriving at Selhurst Park, the Eagles were tipped to struggle, but they finished the 2021-22 campaign in a respectable 12th spot. Vieira made some shrewd signings last summer, rebuilding the squad after several first-team players had left.

Crystal Palace will be looking to finish in the top half of the Premier League table this season. At the time of writing, the south London club are available at 7/4 for a top-half finish.

Leeds United Preview: Whites to stay away from trouble under Marsch?

Leeds United looked to be heading for relegation last season, as the popular Marcelo Bielsa was sacked in February after a 4-0 hammering at home to Tottenham. Jesse Marsch lost his first two, but Leeds went on to win three and draw two of the next five.

United survived on the final day after an excellent 2-1 win at Brentford. Leeds have some excellent players, and the Yorkshire side should be nowhere near the bottom three. Marsch will be looking to stamp his authority at Elland Road, and Leeds could finish in mid-table this term.

West Ham United Preview: Europe again for the Hammers?

Under the experienced David Moyes, West Ham have been the surprise package in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons or so. The Hammers finished sixth in the 2020-21 campaign to book their spot in the Europa League.

West Ham have turned themselves into a genuine top-four contender, and they have qualified for Europe via their league position two years running for the first time in the club’s history. The Irons have a tough start against the Premier League champions, but West Ham will relish the opportunity of upsetting one of the big boys early doors.

Leicester City Preview: Foxes to improve this time around?

The 2020-21 season was a memorable one for Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City. The Midlands club beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final to win the trophy for the first time in their history. They finished fifth in the league, losing out on a place in the top four on the final day for the second season running.

Leicester failed to replicate those heights last season. However, Rodgers is one of the most experienced managers in the Premier League, and the Foxes will surely improve on last season’s eighth-place finish. Leicester will be hoping to be in the mix for the European slots this time around.

Newcastle United Preview: Can the Magpies to seal a top-six finish?

Backed by very generous owners, Newcastle have an open chequebook this summer. They made some huge signings back in January, and Eddie Howe’s Magpies won several matches to finish in 11th spot. It was a remarkable turnaround for Newcastle, who spent the first half of the season in the bottom three.

At the time of writing, Newcastle are the seventh favourites behind the top six to win the title. It may be too early to think about being top dogs in England, but the Magpies may just break into Europe this term, while the cup competitions could also take priority at St James’ Park.

Aston Villa Preview: Big season ahead for Gerrard?

After a solid season, Steven Gerrard is starting to build something at Villa Park. The boss has made some superb signings, and his legendary status as a player allows him to attract top players, with Philippe Coutinho already arriving from Barca this summer.

Many bookies and pundits alike have tipped Aston Villa for a mid-table finish, but can the Midlands outfit sneak into Europe this season?

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview: Top half again for Lage’s men?

Under Nuno Espirito Santo, Wolverhampton Wanderers played UEFA Europa League football, reaching the quarter-finals in 2020. They had a mixed 2020-21 campaign, finishing in 13th. However, they improved last term, with Lage guiding the club to tenth in his first year in charge.

Wolves were in the mix for the European spots at stages last season, but the squad ran out of steam in the latter weeks. Nevertheless, if they can get some fresh faces in, Wolves could be a force to be reckoned with in the race for Europe this season.

Southampton Preview: Where will the Saints finish?

Southampton will want to improve on the last few seasons. They have failed to secure a top-half finish since the 2016-17, when Claude Puel guided the club to an eighth-place finish. The Saints are certainly capable of finishing in the top half this season.

Southampton lived dangerously close to the edge at times last term, and they ended the campaign with a poor run of four straight defeats. Can they improve this time around?

Players to Watch Out For in the 2022-23 Season: Trossard to build on last season?

Leandro Trossard was joint top scorer with Neal Maupay for Brighton in the league last season, with the pair netting eight goals each. The Belgium international has enjoyed him time in England since making the switch in 2019 and has improved season after season. The No. 11 could be Brighton’s player to watch out for this term.

Our Brighton & Hove Albion Predictions: Potter to guide Seagulls to top half again

Brighton finished in their highest ever position in the top flight in their 120-year history last term, and they look a good bet to top that this time around. In Potter, Albion have one of the best young managers around in England, and their squad looks very capable on paper.

We are backing Brighton to secure another top-half finish this season – the bookies are offering the decent price of 5/4 for Albion to end in the top ten.
