Brighton vs Southampton: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

22 April 2022 03:30

Brighton and Southampton clash in a south-coast derby (of sorts) as the two meet on Sunday afternoon.

The Seagulls will hope to get back into the good form they showed with impressive victories at Arsenal and Tottenham before seeing their winning run halted by Manchester City, who sent them back home with a 3-0 defeat.

Ralph Hasenhuttl will also hope to see his men get back to winning ways this weekend, having followed up their own 1-0 win over the Gunners with a lacklustre 2-0 loss at Burnley on Thursday night, leaving the Saints one point behind Brighton in the Premier League table.

Here's 90min's preview of this clash.

Brighton team news

Elsewhere, Leandro Trossard and Steven Alzate are doubts and will require late fitness tests to determine their availability. Jakub Moder and Shane Duffy are also missing for the hosts.

Brighton vs Southampton prediction

Coming up against a side that has demonstrated its capabilities against top opposition over the last few rounds of fixtures and having lost 6-0 to Chelsea and 2-0 to Burnley in their previous two away trips, Southampton can be expected to struggle here - despite having more first-teamers to boast then their hosts.

Brighton, though, will have to do well to pick themselves up from a 3-0 defeat last time out and beat a side that can admittedly trouble any opponent.

It should be a tight affair, with the most minimal of margins to decide the outcome.

Prediction: Brighton 1-0 Southampton
