AFC Bournemouth vs Brighton & Hove Albion Both Teams To Score
AFC Bournemouth vs Brighton & Hove Albion Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
In December 2016, Bournemouth triumphed over Liverpool at home for the last time. Six previous Premier League meetings between the Cherries and the Reds all ended in losses for the Cherries, including both matches this season.
On August 6, Scott Parker’s team defeated Aston Villa 2-0 to kick off the season. However, they have since lost to Manchester City and Arsenal while giving up seven goals.
In its last two games, Bournemouth has battled against the top two Premier League opponents. However, they will enter the game with a win after defeating Norwich City in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night. On Sunday, the promoted team will face another challenging test while playing Liverpool.
With 88 points from their 46 matches and eight losses, Brighton, who will play Wolverhampton Wanderers at home to close out the month, came second in the Championship last season. However, they know the challenging task in England’s top division.
Bournemouth will be looking to establish themselves at the top level after spending two seasons, mostly in Championship and five consecutive seasons in the Premier League.
With their ninth-place finish from the previous season, Brighton earned their highest top-flight position in club history. This season, they have continued where they left off, with impressive away victories at Manchester United and West Ham United sandwiching a 0-0 home draw against Newcastle United.
Graham Potter has led the Seagulls forward significantly since he did take over in 2019, both in terms of their playing style and results.
However, that deadlock against Newcastle at the Amex Stadium exposed Brighton’s most persistent weakness under the former Swansea City manager: an inability to convert opportunities into as many goals as they must score.
Brighton managed to gain 29 of their 51 points away from home despite only having five victories and scoring 19 goals in 19 games at home the season before.
This has occasionally resulted in an unexpected discrepancy between the team’s apparent development and the mood of the home audience.
AFC Bournemouth vs Brighton & Hove Albion Team News
- AFC Bournemouth
Ryan Fredericks, Joe Rothwell, Junior Stanislas, and David Brooks will all be missing out on Bournemouth once more. Still, Jamal Lowe should be back with AFC Bournemouth after his illness has passed.
During his press conference, Parker also disclosed that Dominic Solanke, battling an ankle problem, is pushing to be available. The forward is expected to start the game on the bench.
The team made several adjustments for their EFL Cup match against Norwich on Tuesday, but those who were rested should be back in the lineup for this game. Kieffer Moore is anticipated to play at the attack’s spearhead.
- Brighton and Hove Albion
Potter made 11 substitutions in Wednesday’s 3-0 EFL Cup victory over Forest Green Rovers, indicating that he already has a settled starting lineup even at this early point in the year. Since none of those eleven players traveled to Gloucestershire in the middle of the week, Brighton has used the same starting lineup for each of their first three league games.
As a result, it would be surprising if Potter changed his mind after such a strong start to the season. However, he will undoubtedly be tempted to start Pervis Estupinan at left wing-back in the coming years, especially since doing so would allow Trossard to play even higher up the field.
Except for Jakub Moder’s cruciate ligament rupture, which he suffered during the conclusion of the previous season, Brighton is unharmed.
