Southampton vs Brighton: Predictions
Not helped by a terrible injury crisis, Southampton have been in freefall in recent months, winning just one of their last 11 Premier League games and taking only four points during that time. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men lost 5-2 against Manchester City last time out and have dropped to 14th in the table, just seven points clear of this weekend’s opponents, who are only above the relegation zone on goal difference.
Brighton aren’t in much better shape themselves after losing against Crystal Palace, West Brom and Leicester in their last three Premier League games, while they’ve taken just two points from their last five. Graham Potter’s side are hovering just outside the relegation zone thanks to their +3 goal difference advantage over Fulham, but will be well aware of the fine form the Londoners are currently enjoying. This could be a do-or-die clash for both sides with Southampton being dragged into trouble.
