Wolves vs Brighton: Predictions
It’s been a disappointing season for both clubs, with Wolves unable to build on their seventh-placed finish in the Premier League last season, currently languishing in 12th, while Brighton have been teetering on the brink of dropping into the relegation zone for much of the campaign, but now appear to be safe.
Having invested heavily in the summer window, notably recruiting Porto wonderkid Fabio Silva, Barcelona full-back Nelson Semedo and Lyon’s experienced and versatile Marcal, Nuno Espirito Santo will likely count this season as a huge damp squib, with the club currently six points off the top half of the table.
For Brighton, Graham Potter has delivered everything possible, except for results. Recruitment has been savvy, the football entertaining and attack-minded, completely at odds with his predecessor Chris Hughton, who was sacked on account of his style, but the points have not always been forthcoming.
The Seagulls have been locked in a relegation battle for much of the season, but Potter has navigated the South Coast club to relative safety in recent months, and he will now be hoping to see out the campaign with a flourish. There is little on the line for both clubs, so each dugout will be hoping to avoid complacency and the dreaded ‘beach mode’ for middling side at this stage of a season.
Wolves vs Brighton: Match Stats
The home and away fixtures of this contest have been chalk and cheese across the past three seasons. At Brighton the scorelines have read: 1-0, 2-2, 3-3. While in the West Midlands, both sides have played out consecutive 0-0s, so something must surely give here; third time’s a charm as the age-old maxim goes.
And this is a contest where Danny Welbeck will fancy bagging his 50th Premier League goal. The 30-year-old has scored five Premier League goals this season, last netting more in a single campaign in 2013/14 with Manchester United (nine), with three of those strikes coming in his six games.

These two clubs played out a blistering contest earlier this season, sharing the spoils in a six-goal thriller in which Wolves struck three times in the opening 45 minutes through Romain Saiss, a Dan Burn own goal and a 44th-minute Ruben Neves penalty. Brighton rallied after the break and came from 3-1 down to level proceedings, with Lewis Dunk’s 70-minute equaliser putting the gloss on a frantic showdown. Will the neutral be treated to another classic this weekend?
