- Southampton were twice pegged back at home against Leicester in midweek, ultimately drawing 2-2 with the Foxes, which does see them remain having been beaten just once in seven games so far this season at St. Mary’s in the Premier League.
- Centre-back Jan Bednarek was withdrawn on Wednesday with a knock and will miss out here Lyanco or the returning Jack Stephens ready to step in if needed, while Fraser Forster has picked up a minor issue.
- Whilst a 1-1 draw away at West Ham was Brighton’s ninth successive Premier League game without victory, the Seagulls can take heart from never giving up against the high-flying Hammers, coming from behind late on to pick up a well-earned point.
- Ecuadorian youngster Jeremy Sarmiento’s Premier League debut lasted just 13 minutes as he was forced off with a hamstring injury which will keep him out of this one and he wasn’t the only Brighton player injured in midweek, with Adam Lallana and Adam Webster both suffering knocks and all are set to join the likes of Stephen Alzate and Danny Welbeck on the sidelines.

Southampton will have been disappointed to have not picked up all three points against Leicester, but it was a performance in which they can take heart from and the Saints will be confident of taking a step further against Brighton, who are out of form from a results perspective. The wastefulness of the Seagulls in front of goal has been a huge factor in their recent decline and the absence of creative midfielder Adam Lallana won’t help Brighton when it comes to fashioning chances against their opponents here. With home advantage in their favour where they have scored twice in two of their last three league games, Southampton may just have that clinical edge that sees them overcome Brighton, however be sure to back the hosts via the draw no bet market for extra security.
Tip: SOUTHAMPTON DRAW NO BET
