Brighton – Southampton Match Prediction | 24-08-2019

Danny Ings Two goals in his first four games and looking back to his best up front as he continues to put his injury hell behind him.Alex McCarthy Form in goal earned an England call-up, albeit without playing, but it does highlight his importance to this Saints side.Ryan Bertrand Scored against Leicester in their most recent home game and will be out to prove a point after being overlooked for the England squad again.

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. 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. 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.

Southampton Predicted Starting Line up

Glenn Murray His two goals against Fulham earned Brighton a point, and took him to three from four so far this season.Pascal Gross A missed penalty against Fulham was a rare negative for Gross, having become an integral part of the Brighton line-up since the start of last season.Alireza Jahanbakhsh The Iranian winger has had to be patient, but even if he remains a substitute for now it is quality from the bench that many other teams would love to have.

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. 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. With the home advantage, we can see Brighton picking up three points in this game.

Having already beaten Brighton in the EFL Cup this term can the Saints overcome them in the Premier League this time at 11/5 withBet365. His replacement, former RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hassenhuttl, has instilled a more positive approach in his players so far but they remain struggling towards the bottom end of the table with just two points separating them from 18th placed Cardiff City with eight league fixtures remaining.

Moreover, the hosts only lost two of their last 10 matches and will be highly motivated for the Saturday showdown. As a result, its fair to say the Seagulls, as people call them back home, have enjoyed a solid start to the campaign. A 3-0 win over Watford and a 1-1 draw against West Ham are the results which demand respect and thats exactly what I have for this team. The hosts scored 4 goals and conceded only one during their first two matches in the new Premier League season.

Moreover, three of the last 5 H2H matches resulted in a draw none of which were goalless! A draw with a goal on each end is what I aim for here. Its this piece of information that provides further backing behind my betting choice. Its now been 13 successive home matches in the Premier League that Brighton have scored over 1.5 goals.

Brighton vs Southampton: Premier League Preview and Predictions

This campaign, they started with a win against Watford on the road, and in the process kept a clean sheet as well. And in their next fixture, they held West Ham to a draw. Meanwhile, Southampton lost both of their opening two games, and to be frank, only one of them could be considered a lopsided match-up (which was against Liverpool).
