Aston Villa 23/20 to beat Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Aston Villa win
Odds: 23/20 @ 888sport
Looking to continue on what has been a stunning start to the new campaign, Aston Villa will host a struggling Brighton from behind closed doors on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, managing to make a thumping return to winning ways before November’s international break, Aston Villa will find the mood in their camp at a real high. In their opening seven Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded five wins against a pair of defeats, scoring 18 and conceding nine in return. Managing to collect a points tally of 15 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat with just their goal difference stopping them from breaking into the European positions, it should also be noted that Aston Villa hold the third-best attacking record in the division. As for their previous run of results, collecting a 3-0 victory against Arsenal last time out, Saturday’s hosts have bagged six strikes in their back-to-back Premier League outing and also landed that stunning romp against Liverpool on home soil last month.
As for the visitors, still struggling to find any real signs of form since opening the 2020/2021 campaign, Brighton find themselves once again battling it out at the foot of the table. In their opening eight Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a single win, three draws and four defeats, scoring 11 and conceding 14 in return. Managing to collect a points tally of six, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 16th and holding just a three-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, Brighton have failed to win any of their last seven straight contests across all formats and they have also failed to secure a victory on the road in their last three Premier League away fixtures. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a home victory on Saturday afternoon.
