Brighton were shocked last weekend when they hosted struggling Burnley and proceeded to lose the game 3-0. It means back-to-back defeats and just one win in six for Graham Potter and his side. They play Newcastle next before an awful run with eight of their 11 remaining matches against top eight sides. There should be no relegation issues but they could be in for a slump to end the season.

At the Amex, the Seagulls are struggling with no win in three and just one in their last nine games. Liverpool, Tottenham and West Ham still have to play here but then so do Norwich. Only one of the last five road sides to have visited this ground have failed to find the back of the net. In just one of their last six home matches have they managed to net the opening goal

Aston Villa are also struggling and a 1-0 home loss to Watford last time out means it is two straight defeats, three without victory and just one in eight. The Midlands outfit are in 13th place and while they should be ok the gap between them and Burnley in 18th is still only seven points. None of their next three are against top-eight sides but then the five that follow are. A lack of goals is the current issue with Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings looking short of confidence and no goal in 237 minutes.

Away from Villa Park, Villa have been a mixed bag of late with three defeats but also three victories. They still have to go to the Etihad, Molienux and West Ham this season but also have games at Leeds and Burnley. Each of their last two on the road and four of five have gone under 2.5 goals. The last six goals that they have scored away have come from different sources.

Brighton vs Aston Villa Match Stats

Both teams need to stop the rot that has set in this season and a share of points might be appealing to both. The Seagulls are draw specialists with a league high 12 from their 25 games. Aston Villa meanwhile have also drawn two of their last five so backing this game to finish all-square is sensible.

Brighton are the XG kings over the last few seasons and most of them comes from getting shots on target but not converting them. You would expect them to control the possession and the bulk of the chances here against Villa although whether that translates to a positive result is another matter. You can remove this issues by just backing the hosts to have the most shots on target.
