Stadium: Amex Stadium

Brighton took a while to come to terms with a change of manager but now look firmly back on track ahead of hosting Aston Villa on Sunday.

The visitors have had mixed fortunes since their own leadership switch and may need the World Cup break before fully embracing fresh tactics.

We reckon Albion are a percentage pick to prevail at 17/20 for our first Brighton vs Aston Villa prediction.

Brighton Odds

Brighton took a few body blows during a tough run of fixtures last month but Roberto De Zerbi has come out fighting with a hat-trick of wins.

The Seagulls were very impressive in a 4-1 Premier League victory over Chelsea on home turf and then shaded a 3-2 success at Wolves.

Wednesday’s 3-1 EFL Cup triumph at Arsenal was another big boost to morale, even if both teams did make wholesale changes.

Forward Jeremy Sarmiento was one of several youngsters to come in and he said De Zerbi has made a good impression since replacing Graham Potter.

“It’s great playing under him,” commented the 20-year-old. “He’s giving opportunities to the younger guys and at the same time he is very demanding.

“It’s clear what he wants us to do on the pitch, but he gives the young guys the confidence to keep pushing for a place in the starting XI in the Premier League.”

Brighton showed during their bright start to the season, which yielded five wins in seven outings, that they are a side which feeds on confidence.

Pascal Gross has flourished during both hot streaks and Brighton vs Aston Villa odds.

Last Brighton EPL line-up: Sanchez, Webster, Dunk, Estupinan, March, Mac Allister, Gross, Lallana, Mitoma, Caicedo, Trossard.

Aston Villa Odds

Unai Emery enjoyed a dream start as Villa boss when beating Manchester United 3-1 in the league last Sunday, taking a 2-0 lead inside a dozen minutes.

The Spaniard looked on course to upset the Red Devils again in the EFL Cup on Thursday, when hitting the front twice at Old Trafford.

However, he got a glimpse of how fragile the Midlands outfit can be on the road as United eventually ran out 4-2 winners.

“For 75 minutes, we competed well and we were having chances,” said Emery. “In the last 15 minutes, we lost a little bit our mentality.

“We have to improve and work on this in the days before the match against Brighton.

“I learned a lot because the players gave me a lot of information in the performance.”

One notable aspect of Villa’s performance was that they defended with an incredibly high line and relied on catching United offside.

That gameplan may take some adjusting to, especially for a team which has picked up just two points from seven Premier League road trips.

Let’s add 19/5 for the hosts to oblige 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 to our Brighton vs Aston Villa betting tips.

Last Villa EPL line-up: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne, Douglas Luiz, Buendia, Dendoncker, Ramsey, Watkins, Bailey.
