Brighton vs Brentford odds
*Odds correct as of 07:00 on December 6
Brighton returned from the international break with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest to end a six-game winless run which had seen them lose twice alongside four draws. But they were unable to build on that victory, losing 3-2 to 10-man Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It was a defeat that Brighton fans felt aggrieved about, with Chelsea awarded a penalty after VAR review when James Milner collided with Mykhailo Mudryk in the box. For many, this was a soft decision, with others also believing Chelsea should have been reduced to nine men. It leaves them eighth in the table, seven points outside the top four.
Brentford, meanwhile, ended a two-game losing streak after defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal either side of the international break. In those games, Brentford failed to find the net, but they bounced back with victory last time out. Sure, it was struggling Luton, but Brentford were made to work hard for their 3-1 victory at home, with the game goalless at half-time. The win leaves the Bees 11th, but they are just three points behind eighth-placed Brighton and they would overtake the Seagulls with a victory.
