Brighton backed to inflict more away pain on Aston Villa

Brighton will fancy their chances when they face Aston Villa in an English Premier League fixture at the Amex Stadium. The Villans have been poor away from home this season and I am backing the hosts to capitalise on their road worries.

Brighton Form


Brighton are coming off a 1-0 defeat at Everton in their last Premier League fixture. They looked lively in attack as always, creating chances and forcing saves from the Everton goalkeeper.

The Seagulls will be pleased to return to the Amex Stadium where there they are unbeaten in seven of their last nine matches. Among their results at home is a 3-0 victory over Tottenham while Norwich and Bournemouth have also fallen at the Amex.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa were on the receiving end of a disappointing 6-1 defeat at the hands of champions Manchester City in their last Premier League fixture. They were outclassed in every department and conceded six goals before Anwar El Ghazi struck a consolation. 

The Villans have slipped into the relegation zone following a run of six defeats from their last nine Premier League matches. Dean Smith’s men also have an poor record on their travels having lost 12 of their last 15 away matches.

Aston Villa News


Aston Villa have plenty of injury problems with Tom Heaton, John McGinn and Wesley all sidelined. Jonathan Kodjia is expected to recover from the illness that kept him out of the defeat to City while goalkeeper Pepe Reina could be in line to make his debut after sealing a loan move from AC Milan. 

Brighton vs Aston Villa Head to Head


Aston Villa have an 8-1 advantage with four draws from 13 previous matches against Brighton. The Villans earned a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Villa Park. Adam Webster put Brighton around before Jack Grealish and Matt Targett turned things around.

Brighton vs Aston Villa Match Up


Alireza Jahanbakhsh has been the man in form for Brighton in recent weeks with two goals in his last three Premier League matches. With Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard also impressing lately, the Seagulls have enough to get the better of the Villa defence. 

Aston Villa looked lightweight without striker Wesley last Saturday and struggled to offer any attacking threat. Jack Grealish and Anwar El Ghazi will once again be tasked with providing the spark but are likely to find things difficult at the Amex.
