In the battle of the south coast, Brighton take on neighbours Southampton in the third round of fixtures in the Premier League.
Saints kicked off their Premier League campaign with two straight defeats. A 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Burnley was followed up by a more encouraging 2-1 loss to Liverpool.
Brighton, on the other hand, won their first game in emphatic fashion as they tore through Watford in a 3-0 win.
A week later though, the Seagulls were unable to make it two from two as they drew 1-1 with West Ham at the Amex.
Looking at the head to head record, it’s Southampton who should be the big favourites. Brighton haven’t beaten Saints in five straight attempts. In fact, their last win over Southampton came in the Championship In January 2012.
Despite this, our recommendation is to back the in-form team. Brighton showed great ability in their opener and what’s more, they’ll be keen to impress at home following that bore draw with the Hammers.
