The Seagulls had been impressive in the league, having a good record against their South Coast rivals and can exploit Bournemouth's defensive weaknesses on the road.

  • Brighton have won 4 of their last 5 matches (Premier League)
  • Bournemouth have lost 3 of their last 4 matches against Brighton (Premier League)
  • Bournemouth have conceded 2+ goals in their last 3 away matches.

Head to Head


These sides have met 114 times in all competitions with 41 wins for Brighton, 44 for Bournemouth and 29 ending in a draw.

Last season, Brighton won both the matches against Bournemouth in the Premier League. They defeated the Cherries 1-0 at home before winning 2-0 in the reverse fixture.

Brighton Form


Brighton come into this off a 3-2 loss to AEK Athens in the Europa League with their first game in Europe ending in a disappointing defeat on Thursday.

Roberto de Zerbi's side have made an impressive start to the Premier League season with four wins and a defeat from five games to sit in fifth spot.

Last weekend, the Seagulls thumped Manchester United 3-1 away from home.

Brighton Team News


Brighton will be without Julio Enciso, who is out for an extended period. 

Jakub Moder is also out, while Evan Ferguson, Lewis Dunk and James Milner will undergo late fitness tests.

Bournemouth Form


Bournemouth are 15th in the Premier League and are without a win in five league games following three draws and two losses.

The Cherries held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw last weekend having also drawn 2-2 with Brentford in their previous match.

They started the season with another stalemate against West Ham before suffering defeats to Liverpool and Tottenham.

Bournemouth Team News


Bournemouth are still without Tyler Adams and Alex Scott due to injuries. 

Ryan Fredericks and Emiliano Marcondes are also unavailable.

Verdict

I'm backing Brighton to get back to winning ways as they return to Premier League action.

The Seagulls have a good record against their South Coast rivals and can exploit Bournemouth's defensive weaknesses on the road.
