Brighton vs Aston Villa Preview and Prediction 2021

Brighton vs Aston Villa predictions for Saturday’s Premier League fixture at the AMEX Stadium. Brighton are unbeaten in five league games ahead of the visit of Aston Villa. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings between Brighton and Aston Villa.

Brighton are unbeaten in five Premier League fixtures.

Aston Villa has scored at least once in eight of their last 10 league games.

Brighton has scored exactly one goal in four of their last five matches.

Seagulls on the rise

Unbeaten in five assignments, Brighton are finally starting to pick up the results to match their excellent performances, and the confident Seagulls should provide a stiff test for Dean Smith’s dangerous Villa team at the AMEX Stadium.

Albion did suffer a midweek setback when they lost at the death to Leicester in a tight FA Cup tussle at the King Power Stadium, though Graham Potter’s decision to name a weakened side against the Foxes was an indicator of where his priorities lie.

In the league, Brighton’s spike in results included impressive victories over Leeds, Tottenham and Liverpool, and Albion look capable of trading blows with just about anyone at present.

Villa searching for consistency

Aston Villa meanwhile, are locked in a frustrating pattern of winning and losing every other game, and the Villains’ inconsistency has triggered a drop towards the midsection of the Premier League.

Dean Smith’s side carved out a 1-0 win at home to Arsenal last time out, though that victory followed hot on the heels of a 3-1 reverse to West Ham, highlighting just how hot and cold they have blown since the turn of the year.

Back goals at both ends

It’s difficult to know which Villa will turn up week on week, though the Midlands do at least offer a consistent goal-scoring threat.

The Villains, who are averaging the second highest attempts per game stats this season behind Man City, notched at least once in nine of their last 10 top-flight tests, and they will expect to register again at the AMEX Stadium.

Brighton are playing with enough confidence to strike back however, and it’s worth noting that Albion and Villa swapped goals in each of their last four encounters.

Backing both teams to score appeals again for their latest skirmish on Saturday, while our 1-1 correct score prediction tips the well-matched outfits to share the spoils for the second fixture in a row at Brighton.

The Seagulls (10) have drawn more often than any other Premier League club this season and they might have to settle for a point again against a Villa side that held them at home last year.

Brighton injuries and team news

Brighton will be without Florin Andone, Tariq Lamptey, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Solly March on Saturday, but Adam Webster and Davy Propper could return to the Seagulls’ squad for the game.

January arrival Moises Caicedo could also make the bench for Albion.

Aston Villa injuries and team news

Wesley and Kortney Hause remain unavailable for Villa, though Dean Smith has a strong squad to choose from elsewhere.

Jack Grealish, Ross Barkley and Bertrand Traore are likely to be deployed behind Ollie Watkins, though new signing Morgan Sanson could be kept on the bench again.
