First Goalscorer Kaoru Mitoma 27/5 with Bet UK

Having knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup thanks to an injury time winner from Kaoru Mitoma last weekend, Brighton return to league action looking to continue their march towards European football.

Roberto De Zerbi’s men currently sit in 6th, just five points behind Tottenham, with two games in hand over the North London side. The Seagulls have scored 26 goals in 13 Premier League games under Italian, with only the top two sides Arsenal (28) and Manchester City (30) netting more than the Seagulls since his first game in charge.

Brighton have won nine of their 19 Premier League games this season – only in 2021-22 (12) have they ever won more in a single campaign in the competition, as they aim to qualify for a European competition for the first time in their history. 

Bournemouth, however, have struggled since football returned after the break for the World Cup, scoring the fewest goals (1), winning the joint-fewest points (1) and losing the joint-highest number of games (4). Meanwhile, only Everton (11) have conceded more than the Cherries in this time (10).

Gary O’Neil’s side currently occupy the final relegation spot, having lost eight of their last 10 matches in the Premier League (D1 W1) and will need to start picking up points sooner rather than later if they want to avoid going straight back down to the Championship.

Brighton vs Bournemouth match stats

Kaoru Mitoma is the name on everyone’s lips after his impressive performance against Liverpool in the FA Cup, with the forward scoring an injury time winner to send his side into round five. The Japanese international has either scored or assisted in five of his last six matches for Brighton (4 goals, 1 assist) and has really found his groove under De Zerbi. 

As well as being a goal threat, Mitoma is also a nightmare for defenders with his impressive dribbling skills and close control. 30% of his attempted take-ons in the Premier League this season have been in the opposition’s box (12/40), the highest share of any player with at least 30 attempted. The winger is averaging 1.5 take-ons in the opposition box per 90, the highest ratio of any player this season (min. 500 minutes played).

Both Brighton and Bournemouth have faced a league-high six penalties each this season, while the Cherries are one of just two sides yet to be awarded one this term along with Liverpool. As it stands, Bournemouth’s six penalties faced is the joint-most without also being awarded one in a single Premier League campaign (also Charlton Athletic in 2004-05).
