Match Preview

  • Brighton & Hove Albion have lost just one of their last six in the Premier League (PL) (W1, D4, L1), and most recently saved a point against Liverpool with an injury time penalty. Indeed, they’ve scored five PL goals after the 80th minute so far – in addition to being shown seven yellow and three red cards in the same timeframe!
  • Though tough to beat in recent weeks, Brighton are nonetheless one of just two teams still winless at home ahead of this round (D3, L2) – but they are at least trending right, going unbeaten in three. Since 2017, however, they’ve not been able to beat Southampton here in a competitive match (D1, L3), losing three in a row without once finding the net.
  • Southampton visit after letting a 2-0 lead slip and losing 3-2 against Manchester United in the last round, marking their first defeat in eight league matches (W5, D2, L1). Impressively, they scored 2.13 goals on average across those eight matches, while at the other end, they kept a clean sheet in four.
  • Away from home, Southampton are unbeaten in four (W2, D2) in matches that have averaged 4.0 total goals. In those, they conceded 1.5 goals on average per second half, but just 0.5 per first half. Contrary to Brighton’s ‘card magnetism’, the saintly ‘Saints’ have been fairly clean with just 1.3 yellow cards dealt to them on average per game.
  • Players to watch: Pascal Gross converted a late penalty in the last round, and also has two assists across the Seagulls’ last four PL matches.
  • Instrumental to the Saints’ success, James Ward-Prowse has scored four goals across their last five in the league, with three of those being direct free kicks!
  • Hot stat: Not counting the stalemate against Burnley, there’s been at least one goal scored in 17 of 18 PL halves when Brighton have played this season.
