Brighton – Southampton Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

But taking into account the superiority that Southampton has displayed in h2h ties over the years, and the fact that they denied even the mighty Liverpool a clean sheet just the last match-day, coupled with Brightons return of just one clean net from the previous ten appearances in front of the home crowd, BTTS becomes a great option to back. As such, expect the home team to manage without losing.

The Seagulls are in the better form of the two sides and have been better in front of their own fans since being promoted to the Premier League. Southampton meanwhile have struggled somewhat away and although these two sides are well-matched we expect those components to play a part in a narrow home win by one goal at3/1 withPaddyPower. With the home advantage, we can see Brighton picking up three points in this game.

Hughes also confirmed there were no injuries picked up by the players that travelled over the international break. Shane Long and Charlie Austin have missed training, with toe and hamstring njuries respectively. Should they miss out, however, Manolo Gabbiadini who started the Carabao Cup win against the Seagulls could return to the starting line-up. Danny Ings is fit to start up front in their place, however, after recovering from a bad blister. Mark Hughes has refused to fully rule Long and Austin out, meanwhile, with the Monday night fixture allowing time over the weekend for the duo to prove their fitness.

Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross scored first-half goals as the Seagulls bounced back from their opening-day defeat to Watford. Since then, however, they have lost 1-0 to Liverpool in the league and to Southampton in the Carabao Cup before, last time out, drawing 2-2 with Fulham thanks to Murrays late double. Brighton have only won one of their five matches this season, but it was a big win defeating Manchester United 3-2 in their first home game of the campaign.

In their last game against a strong West Ham United, Brighton settled for a 1-1 draw but could have easily emerged as winners. clearly had a plan.
