West Brom vs Brighton: Predictions

West Brom have spent the majority of the Premier League season languishing in the bottom three and with every passing week their survival hopes diminish, but Sam Allardyce is famed for having never tasted relegation in his managerial career and three points this weekend could be the adrenaline shot his side needs to kick on.

The Baggies looked rejuvenated after a thrilling 3-2 win in the Black Country derby over Wolves in mid-January, but seven winless games on the spin have followed that five-goal spectacle at Molineux and now they sit perilously in 19th, and some 11 points adrift of safety.

Brighton by contrast have looked brilliant in spells under Graham Potter this term, but the league table seldom lies and their current 16th-place standing will have one or two fans on the South Coast in a state of nervous apprehensive. They are very much looking over their shoulders with Fulham finding recent form.

The west Londoners have turned a corner under Scott Parker and are now just four points off Brighton, coupled with Christian Benteke’s late winner in the M23 derby, and things are starting to look nervy for the Seagulls, which places a huge emphasis on this contest.

West Brom vs Brighton: Match Stats

Brighton can be a very enjoyable side to watch when they are in full swing and in the mood. Potter has created a very fluid and functional unit despite what their position in the league table would suggest, but it’s not just about attacking hell-for-leather, the Seagulls have found a balance between slick, flair players and hard workers. One of those that brings order to the side is Yves Bissouma, who has registered the fourth-most tackles of any player in the league this season (65).

‘Big Sam’ needs to start accumulating points, and fortunately for him, he faces a very favourable opponent. Against no side has he faced more often without losing in English league football than he has Brighton, and he will be determined to maintain that streak on Saturday.

With Fulham racking up points at a considerable pace, the Baggies will have to find a way of going one better than their away visit to the Amex and secure maximum reward this weekend.
