Brighton & Hove Albion vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Amex Stadium is the venue as Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolvehampton Wanderers go head-to-head in a mid-table Premier League encounter.

Brighton had lost just one of their last six Premier League outings toward the end of 2023 (W2, D3) but commence this round in 8th, 12 points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, meaning their Champions League ambitions are dead in the water. However, their bid to secure back-to-back continental campaigns is still alive, largely thanks to their formidable record at the Amex (W5, D4, L1). Interestingly, each game featured both teams on the scoresheet, highlighting the potential for a high-scoring contest. Last season’s corresponding fixture followed that theme, with Roberto De Zerbi’s side thrashing Wolverhampton 6-0 to maintain their dominant home record against the West Midlands outfit (W2, D2, L1). With two of their three previous home league H2Hs seeing both sides score 2+ goals, this promises to be an enthralling contest.

Adding to this sentiment, visiting Wolverhampton got 2024 off to a winning start, overcoming Brentford in the FA Cup third round with a 3-2 extra-time win after a 2-2 draw in regulation time. Gary O’Neil’s men enjoyed an impressive spell of form at the tail-end of 2023, winning three consecutive Premier League matches to reduce the gap on Brighton to only three points. Though they can draw level on points with the ‘Seagulls’ with an unlikely win in East Sussex, ‘Wolves’ have fared terribly on the road, suffering four defeats on their last five top-flight travels (W1), with each loss seeing them concede 2+ goals. Connoisseurs of action-packed football will at least hope the ‘Wanderers’ can score and concede for the eighth time in nine away league games.
