Tip Reasoning

  • Southampton have lost just one of their last ten meetings with Brighton.
  • Brighton haven’t won at home since Boxing Day and have managed just three home league wins all season.
  • Four of the last ten head-to-head meetings have ended 1-1.

Pride at stake in south coast derby

Both Brighton and Southampton suffered midweek defeats in the Premier League but both will be hoping to restore some pride when they clash in this south coast derby.

Just a point separates these two rivals in the Premier League table and neither have anything significant to play for, with European football an unachievable goal and the relegation battle safely behind them.

Seagulls struggling at the Amex

Brighton are the side in better form thanks to recent wins at Arsenal and Spurs but prior to that they were winless in seven games and they haven’t won at the Amex Stadium since Boxing Day, taking just three points from a possible 21 since then.

In fact, the Seagulls have won only three Premier League games at home all season and have scored two goals there since the turn of the year.

Saints’ form falling away

Southampton also inflicted defeat on Arsenal recently but that is their only win in their last seven games, although they have only lost six of their last 17 in the top flight.

It’s a similar story on the road, with three losses in their last eight league away days but just three wins on the road all season.

History on Saints’ side

Brighton are favourites with the bookies but this looks a good opportunity for Southampton to get something. They have only lost one of their last ten south coast derbies and haven’t lost away to Brighton since 2012.

Four of these ten have ended 1-1 and Brighton have played out six draws at home this season, half of which have been 1-1 scorelines, so I’m backing Southampton double chance along with a 1-1 correct score prediction.

Brighton predicted lineup: Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Cucurella; Lamptey, Mwepu, MacAllister, Caicedo, March; Gross, Welbeck

Southampton predicted lineup: Forster; Valery, Lyanco, Bednarek; Walker-Peters, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Perraud; Armstrong, Elyounoussi, Broja

  • Seven of the last nine Premier League meetings between these sides have seen both teams score
