Reason For Brighton vs Wolverhampton Predictions

  • Brighton have scored just three goals in their last five Premier League matches.
  • Wolves have only scored four goals in the six matches since Raul Jimenez was injured.
  • Three of Brighton’s last six league games at the Amex have ended 1-1.

Seagulls lacking cutting edge

Brighton’s struggles continues in midweek as they fell to a drab 1-0 defeat at home to Arsenal, and for all the early-season clamour about Graham Potter’s progressive brand of football the Seagulls really haven’t been able to live up to the billing.

They sit 17th in the Premier League table and head into the New Year in the midst of a seven match winless streak. In fact, they have only won twice all season and, worryingly, both of those victories came away from home.

Brighton’s main issue is undoubtedly their lack of cutting edge up front. They play attractive football but have no bite in the final third, and that has contributed to them scoring just three goals in their last five games.

Wolves struggle to replace Jimenez

Unfortunately for the neutrals among us, Wolves aren’t doing much better in that regard at the moment. The sickening injury suffered by Raul Jimenez at the end of November has hit them hard, and they’re really struggling to replace his eye for goal.

Wolves have scored only four goals in the six matches since Jimenez’s injury, winning once and most recently losing to a dreadfully unfortunate injury-time goal at Old Trafford.

Low scoring affair expected at the Amex

In any case, with both teams struggling for goals it’s not exactly a shock that we’re backing the unders here. These two scored only eight goals in their combined 12 league matches in December, so under 2.5 goals is our pick of the bunch.

We’re expecting another stalemate at the Amex as well. Brighton have drawn four of their last seven league games and three of their last six at the Amex have ended 1-1. Wolves have played out three 1-1 draws in the league this season, so that looks a good choice for our correct score prediction.

Brighton injuries and team news

Tariq Lamptey and Adam Lallana are two big misses for the home side, but they are expected to welcome back Solly March, Neal Maupay, Ben White and Danny Welbeck after they were rested against Arsenal.

Wolves injuries and team news

Raul Jimenez and Jonny remain the only confirmed absentees, but key midfielder Leander Dendoncker is still a doubt and Willy Boly is also not fit. Daniel Podence is likely to start in a supporting role behind teenage striker Fabio Silva.
