Bet Prediction Best odds
BTTS? Yes 5/6
Correct score 1-1 6/1
First Goalscorer Leandro Trossard 43/5

A run of five straight defeats (including the latest being a 1-0 loss to Southampton) before the international break saw Dean Smith sacked as manager of Aston Villa. In his place comes Steven Gerrard who was in charge of Rangers and now inherits a side in 16th place just two points above relegation. At Villa Park, the Midlands outfit have lost their last two conceding seven times.

Brighton are drawing a lot of games at the moment with five of their last six finishing all-square and the other in a loss to Man City. Overall they will be pleased with their first 11 games which has seen them lose just two times and they sit in seventh spot. Away from the Amex, the Seagulls are unbeaten this season with the last three finishing all-square.

Aston Villa vs Brighton Predictions

The draw looks the best result to be backing here as Aston Villa will be looking to get off to a positive start under Steven Gerrard. Brighton are difficult opponents and have managed three successive road draws coming at Liverpool, Norwich and Crystal Palace.

Four of the last five Aston Villa games have seen both teams find the back of the net while this has happened in five of the last seven for Brighton. It is worth combining both teams to score with our previous prediction of the game to end in a draw.
