Preview | November 13

Brighton & Hove Albion-Aston Villa

Villa look to end Brighton's winning streak.

Brighton are flying after winning two straight Premier League games and will hope to extend the run at home against Villa. The Seagulls will need a good result to hold off Chelsea's push up the table and avoid falling to 7th. Brighton have hopefully learned from their most recent league meeting with the Villans, a 0-2 defeat.

Brighton | WWLDL | 6th | Top Scorer: L. Trossard (7)

Brighton's recent form has seen them move up to 6th in the table. With an average of 1.5 xG (expected goals) per game, Brighton rank 5th in the league and they're clearly one of the most clinical sides in the league. Pascal Groß's 34 passes into the box this season ranks 7th in the Premier League. His creativity will go a long way to securing success for Brighton in this match. Leandro Trossard will be front and center in their attempt to prolong success. He has led them this year with 35 shots taken (11th in the EPL).

Villa | WLWLL | 13th | Top Scorer: L. Bailey (3)

Due to impressive form, Villa have moved up to 13th in the table. Villa have a high long ball ratio of 6.6 (6th in the EPL) which could find success against Brighton who are one of the weakest teams aerially. Ollie Watkins takes the most shots at goal for Villa. So far this season, he's taken 27 shots (22nd in the EPL).

Brighton-Villa Prediction: 2-1

This one could go either way, but Brighton's firepower looks likely to be the difference between the two teams.

Did you know? Villa have recorded 0 wins, 5 losses, and 2 draws on the road this season.

Can Brighton win and make it 3 out of 3? Will this be the start of a winning streak for the Villans? Find your favourite market and place your bet at PokerStars Sports.
