Aston Villa vs Brighton Match Preview
After a superb win apiece two weeks ago, the international break came at the wrong time for these clubs and it’s all about who still has the momentum when they meet at Villa Park.
Aston Villa, who knocked out Brighton in the latest round of the Carabao Cup, made it back-to-back away victories when they followed up on the road with a 5-1 rout of Norwich.
Dean Smith’s side have been full of goals recently, but they find keeping them out more difficult and that cost them in their last home match which they drew 2-2 with Burnley.
Brighton, meanwhile, had not won in the Premier League since the opening full day of the season when they hosted Tottenham a fortnight ago and ran out 3-0 victors after opposing goalkeeper Hugo Lloris had suffered a dislocated elbow when conceding the first goal.
The problem the Seagulls have been encountering is scoring goals on their travels having drawn three consecutive blanks but, like Villa, they should have received a major confidence boost from that latest success.
Villa are among the easier Premier League teams to score against and in what appears a fairly evenly-matched contest, a share of the spoils looks likely.
