What Trueform says for Brighton vs Bournemouth
Brighton and Bournemouth have similar peaks and troughs on our Trueform ratings chart and we reckon they are hard to split heading into their encounter at Amex Stadium.
The Cherries have claimed narrow wins in two previous Premier League and EFL Cup meetings this term, but the Seagulls were competitive in both fixtures and now have home advantage.
A Look At Brighton’s Betting Odds
Brighton’s only loss in their last four matches came at Chelsea after a dour 0-0 stalemate at Newcastle on Saturday made it 22 points from 21 games.
Striker Glenn Murray commented: “We work on (the basis that) if we get more points than games played, then we’re almost on target.
“If towards the end of the season we are on 38 or 40 points, then we’ve got what we’ve come to try and get.
“At the minute, we’re on course for that and we’ve just got to keep our form up.”
Having picked up four points from their last two home games, drawing 0-0 with Burnley and beating Watford 1-0, the Seagulls will be scrapping hard for another positive result here.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth climbed out of the relegation zone when securing their first win in nine Premier League games by beating Everton 2-1 at Vitality Stadium.
Ryan Fraser received some help via a hefty deflection off Michael Keane for the second of his goals, but Eddie Howe was quick to praise the former Aberdeen winger.
“Ryan is really beginning to show just how good a player he is,” said the manager.
“What’s important for me is his performances, the level of his game technically, it was excellent.”
