Wolverhampton Wanderers have a genuine shot at Champions League football and will be targeting three points in their quest for a top four finish when they host relegation battlers Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

Wolves have never beaten Brighton in a top-flight match, losing 1-0 at the Amex last season, drawing 0-0 at Molineux and registering a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture on the south coast this season, with Diogo Jota putting them ahead and then equalising in a madcap first half. 

Going back to the Championship days, six of the last eight meetings in all competitions have finished as draws, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s men will back themselves for a win, nine places and 14 points better off than Brighton.

The Seagulls are just one point clear of the relegation zone and are now without a win from their last eight outings, and just one win from their last 13. Still, five of their last eight have finished as draws.

Only Wolves (12) and Arsenal (13) have drawn more games than Brighton, while only league leaders Liverpool, suffering their first and so far only league defeat last Saturday, have lost fewer matches than Nuno’s side (six league defeats).

Jonny is sidelined and the electric Adama Traore is a doubt due to a shoulder problem, but otherwise Wolves are at full-strength here. For Brighton, Berem Kayal and Jose Izquierdo remain concerns and will likely not feature.

The form guide points to a win for the hosts here. We recommend boosting your odds by backing Raul Jimenez to open the scoring; he’s scored 13 Premier League goals this season, seven more than anyone else in the squad.

Best bet

Raul Jimenez to score first and Wolves to win – 4/1 with bet365

 Wolves v Brighton Team News

Brighton have defender Shane Duffy available for Saturday's game with Wolves after he missed the defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend for family reasons.

Duffy is expected to go straight back into Graham Potter’s side as the Seagulls look to arrest an alarming run of form that has seen them slip to 15th in the table, just a point clear of the bottom three, having gone eight games without a win.

Adam Webster filled in at centre-back in Duffy’s absence but is likely to make way on Saturday.

Midfielder Dale Stephens, who has not featured since February 1, is available after recovering from a groin injury but Jose Izquierdo remains on the long-term absentee list with a knee injury.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Glenn Murray and Steven Alzate came off the bench in the 1-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace last time out and are all pushing for starts as Potter thinks about making changes.

The Albion boss admits his side need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible as he prepares to meet the survival challenge head-on.

He said: “You can’t predict the future in this sport. Togetherness is important, I have full confidence the lads will keep giving everything they can.

“I have been through a lot in life both inside and outside of football – it isn’t always an upward journey. We have a wonderful challenge ahead of us now.”

Meanwhile, Wolves winger Adama Traore could feature for the home side despite suffering a dislocated shoulder in the win at Tottenham last weekend.

Jonny Otto and Morgan Gibbs-White have both been ruled out through injury for Nuno Espirito’s side, who are sixth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

Wolves are unbeaten in four league games, winning the last two, and have designs on forcing their way into contention for the Champions League places in the final few months of the season.
