Southampton put to an end a two game winless run when they drew 2-2 with Leicester in midweek thanks to a goal each from Jan Bednarek and Che Adams. Adams goal was his sixth in his last eight in all competitions and the Scot is currently in great form. At home, the Saints have only lost once this season (to Wolves) winning two and drawing four times.
Brighton were thankful for an 89th minute Neal Maupay goal that earned them a point away to West Ham in a 1-1 draw. It stretched their winless run to nine matches although seven of these have finished all-square. On the road, the Seagulls are winless in their last five with four of these finishing honours even.
Southampton vs Brighton Predictions
Backing this game to be a draw looks the sensible play here as two of the last three Saints home games and four of the last five Seagulls road matches have finished all-square. These two are also not the highest scoring sides so the draw comes into play.
Tariq Lamptey will come back into the starting 11 for Brighton after starting on the bench in midweek. He basically played as a wide forward in a front three last week versus Leeds and was often the first man arriving in the box and he looks great anytime scorer value.
