Brighton & Hove Albion form and stats

Brighton & Hove Albion's struggle is real here at The American Express Community Stadium with only 13 points collected from 15 Premier League games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 2-7-6.

The fans are hoping that Brighton will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 1-2 away loss in the Premier League game against Manchester United (placed 2nd). Before that, Brighton had a home game versus Newcastle United which ended with a victory 3-0.

This is expected to be a close game, with Brighton & Hove Albion perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Brighton & Hove Albion as a small favourite), we find ten games. Brighton has won one of these, drawn four and lost five.

The Brighton fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 16 in 15 matches. On the other hand, Brighton have conceded 19 goals.
