THE TEAM NEWS

BRIGHTON

  • Brighton were unable to make it three matches without defeat in the Premier League as they were beaten by Everton last weekend.
  • The Seagulls have lost just three of their home matches in the league this season and will be confident of improving that record here.
  • Aaron Mooy missed the defeat at Everton with a slight knock but the midfielder should come back into contention for this game.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Ryan; Duffy, Webster, Dunk; Montoya, Propper, Mooy, Bernardo; Jahanbakhsh, Maupay, Trossard

Unavailable: Izquierdo (Injured), Burn (Injured), Balogun (Injured)

Doubtful: Mooy (Injured), Jahanbakhsh (Injured), Webster (Injured), Duffy (Injured)

ASTON VILLA

  • Aston Villa were outclassed by Manchester City but the manner in which they conceded goals will be a big concern for Dean Smith.
  • Villa conceded six goals against the reigning champions and Smith could look to change his side on the back of that heavy loss.
  • They will have a new man between the sticks after signing Pepe Reina on loan but still look extremely light of options up front.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Reina; Guilbert, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Nakamba, Hourihane, Douglas Luiz; Trezeguet, El Ghazi, Grealish

Unavailable: Steer (Injured), McGinn (Injured), Davis (Injured), Heaton (Injured), Wesley (Injured)

Doubtful: Kodjia (Illness), Targett (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Brighton have only won one of their last five home games in the Premier League but their overall record on home soil is solid. They host an Aston Villa side that were hammered last week and Brighton should be able to capitalise on their defensive issues to come out on top in this one.
