Southampton vs Brighton Prediction & Match Preview



Southampton vs Brighton Prediction & Match Preview

Southampton and Brighton, the two bottom-table sides, take on each other at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League round 28. 

The Saints desperately needed a win against Sheffield United, and they managed to get one. Southampton aim to keep on climbing the standings, but the match against Brighton will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. 

Danny Ings, who suffered an injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against Brighton.

The Seagulls, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Leicester City. 

Brighton’s Premier League status is in great danger, and, no doubt, they are eager to grab something from Sunday’s clash. Considering that the Seagulls have been anything but impressive in front of goal of late, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. 

Former Liverpool man Adam Lallana should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in the defeat to Brendan Rodgers’ troops.

Team News:

Ibrahima Diallo, Kyle Walker-Peters and Takumi Minamino recovered from injury to start against Sheffield United last week, but all three dropped out of the side to face Man City.

Hasenhuttl should recall the trio for this match, which takes priority over the trip to the Etihad Stadium, while Nathan Tella is another in line for a return to the starting XI.

That should be in place of Moussa Djenepo, who suffered an injury in midweek to join Danny Ings, Theo Walcott, William Smallbone, Oriol Romeu and Michael Obafemi on the sidelines.

Brighton have a number of injury issues of their own to contend with as Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone, Solly March, Adam Webster and Tariq Lamptey have all been ruled out.

Aaron Connolly missed the loss to Leicester but has a chance of being fit for this weekend's clash.

Lallana's goal against the Foxes was his first in the Premier League in 503 days, though he has not found the net in back-to-back league games since December 2016.

Southampton possible starting lineup:
Forster; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Armstrong, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Minamino; Adams, Tella

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