Brighton vs Aston Villa Prediction & Match Preview

Brighton vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.

Brighton and Aston Villa go head to head at Amex Stadium in the Premier League round 24. 

The Seagulls have been in a fine form of late as they are undefeated in the previous six games in all competitions. 

Brighton did well to beat Tottenham in their last home game in the national championship, and that is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Villa.

The Villans, on the other hand, returned to winning ways at the weekend, with the team beating Arsenal thanks to Olie Watkins’ goal. 

Dean Smith’s troops aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but given Brighton’s fine form, we are tempted to put our money on draw. 

In their last meeting at Amex Stadium the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.

Team News:

Brighton will again be without the services of Florin Andone, Tariq Lamptey, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Solly March on Saturday, but Adam Webster and Davy Propper could be involved following recent injuries.

Potter will make wholesale changes to the team that started against Leicester in the FA Cup, with the likes of Yves Bissouma, Alexis Mac Allister, Neal Maupay and Joel Veltman set to return.

Aaron Connolly was handed a start against Burnley last weekend but Leandro Trossard should be in the XI for this match, while January arrival Moises Caicedo could make the bench for the Seagulls.

As for Villa, Wesley and Kortney Hause remain unavailable for selection, but the visitors are otherwise in excellent shape heading into Saturday's contest.

There are not expected to be many surprises in the away side's starting XI this weekend, with Jack Grealish, Ross Barkley and Bertrand Traore again likely to operate behind Watkins, who scored his 10th Premier League goal of the campaign against the Gunners last weekend.

There could be an alteration in the middle of the park, though, with Douglas Luiz set to replace Marvelous Nakamba, meaning that January arrival Morgan Sanson should start on the bench once again.

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; White, Dunk, Webster; Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, Burn; Mac Allister, Maupay, Trossard

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
