Brighton News and Form

It has been back-to-back league defeats for Brighton now after suffering the loss away at Chelsea in their last fixture. That leaves a bit of a relegation threat still hanging over their heads as they start the weekend five points above the drop zone. Brighton’s home record this season stands at W6 D4 L5 but they have won only one of their last five played at the Amex. In that sequence of five games, the only win that Brighton picked up was a victory against the bottom side Huddersfield. Three of Brighton’s last four wins on home soil in the top flight have been by a 1-0 scoreline.

All but one of Brighton’s home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin only. During the course of this season, Brighton have tallied 17 home goals and 40% of their home fixtures have finished under 2.5 goals. Brighton have picked up a clean sheet in one-third of their home games this season, taken a clean sheet in three of their last six at the Amex. There are only four teams in the Premier League this season currently who have produced fewer league goals than what Brighton have. The Seagulls have been leading at the halftime break just four times this season on home soil.

Bournemouth News and Form

The suffered a 3-1 loss at home against Burnley last weekend which will have been a hugely disappointing result for the Cherries. That is back-to-back league defeats for Bournemouth currently and they have only taken one victory in their last nine Premier League games, home and away. Their away form has been really poor this season, and currently, they have lost 10 of their last 11 out on the road in the top flight. During that sequence, the only game that they didn’t lose saw them take a 2-1 victory at bottom side Huddersfield.

The Cherries have averaged under a goal per game away from home this season. But still, 62% of their road fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. The reason for that is because the Cherries have been really poor in defence on their travels. They have conceded at an average of 2.3 goals per away game. Bournemouth have conceded at least two goals in 10 of their last 11 league fixtures. Away from home, of the 12 defeats that Bournemouth have suffered this season, 11 of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Bournemouth have also been losing at the halftime break in 10 of their 16 away games this term. Bournemouth have the third worst defensive record currently in this season’s Premier League.

Brighton v Bournemouth Predictions

Brighton to win: The Seagulls may well take their chance on home soil to get some important points under their belt. They have to raise themselves for this challenge and the weakness of the Bournemouth defence may just help them out. Home win.
