Brighton News and Form – Can the Seagulls stop Leciester?

The Seagulls have banked three wins in their last five league games (L2) and those have been important wins to ease a lot of pressure. They were looking in serious trouble before that. All three of the wins for them in that sequence of games did happen on home soil where they have taken a W3 D2 L1 record this season. They are on a three-match winning sequence at the Amex.

The only team to have won at Brighton this season in the top flight has been Southampton. Surprisingly the goals have been flowing from the Seagulls recently, putting together a five-match scoring streak and netting at least two goals in each of their last three on home soil. Just before the intentional break they visited Old Trafford and took a 3-1 loss against Manchester United to stop a bit of momentum.

Just two of Brighton’s six home games have made it over 2.5 goals, with the Seagulls averaging just a goal per game against them. Of the four league wins that they have taken in this campaign, three of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. 70% of Brighton’s home goals this season have been in the second half of games. But they have conceded 83% of their home goals after the break as well. Can they do enough to disrupt the charge of Leicester?
