What Trueform says for Southampton vs Brighton
Southampton have gone 11 Premier League games without a win but are playing well enough to put that right when hosting Brighton, according to our Trueform ratings.
The Saints have ranked well with three recent draws, notably when taking a point off both Manchester United and Tottenham.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
On top of some solid Premier League efforts, Southampton have also made good progress in the FA Cup, winning 1-0 at Fulham in round three and then beating Watford by the same scoreline on Saturday.
“In the dressing room, our feeling is we are growing as a team and little by little playing much better with and without the ball,” said manager Mauricio Pellegrino.
Guido Carrillo, the club’s £19million record signing, made his debut as a late substitute in that game and should be a useful asset after showing some promising signs at Monaco last month.
Looking at the Southampton vs Burnley odds, we believe Saints can dominate possession and like 31/20 for a home win to nil.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton can also take heart from a couple of decent cup victories, beating Crystal Palace 2-1 and then snatching a last-gasp 1-0 triumph at Middlesbrough.
However, Chris Hughton’s side have struggled to find the back of the net away from home in top-flight fixtures. Albion have gone six Premier League road trips without scoring, picking up only one point in those matches.
Having also lost 4-0 at home to Chelsea last time out in this competition, Brighton have reacted by re-signing striker Leonardo Ulloa on loan from Leicester.
“He’s scored goals at Premier League level and will further strengthen our attacking options,” said Hughton.
“I wasn’t here during his first spell at the club, but I know he was very well thought of by all concerned, including the club’s supporters.”
This game begins a crucial period for Albion, with West Ham, Stoke and Swansea the next three opponents.
We need to see some more encouraging signs before supporting them, though, and 25/4 for Saints to win 2-0 is the last of our Southampton vs Brighton betting tips.
