Brighton News and Form
All credit due to Brighton for starting the season undefeated after two games. They put in an electrifying start to the new campaign producing a 3-0 away win at Watford, a result which not many punters will have seen coming. They consolidated that with a point in their first home game of the season, which was against West Ham.
All four of their goals in the top flight this season have come from four different players. But this has been a fantastic start for Graham Potter and his Seagulls. Brighton had heaps of relegation trouble hanging over them last term so this is a bit of cheer that the South coast club really needed. Last season and the Amex Stadium Brighton picked up a record W6 D5 L8.
In last season’s campaign, Brighton averaged exactly one goal per home fixture. Carrying over their home form from the back end of last season, the Seagulls have failed to win in their last six Premier League home fixtures. In that sequence, they have taken two points only, both from 1-1 draws. The game which kicked-off that poor sequence was a 1-0 reverse against Southampton at the end of March.
Brighton v Southampton Head to Head
The Saints earned four points in the Premier League last season against Brighton
Brighton lost an EFL Cup home tie against Southampton last season too
Four of the last five meetings in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals
The Seagulls are winless in three home games against the Saints (D1 L2)
Southampton News and Form
This hasn’t been the start that Southampton would have imagined for themselves. Two games down and no points on the board is what they have. In their two games, they have conceded a total of five goals as well so it has been a very rocky start. Southampton lost their opening game 3-0 out Burnley but did show a fair degree of competitiveness in their home game against Liverpool. Southampton went down 1-2 against the Reds, but they didn’t play badly at all.
Like Brighton, Southampton had big struggles last season and only finished one place above them in the bottom five. Southampton won only four away games last season in the top flight (D4 L11). They ended the season averaging under a goal per away game and they only managed a clean sheet in 21% of their away fixtures. In total Southampton have not managed to keep a clean sheet in their last nine Premier League fixtures. This becomes an early important South coast derby for them.
