Brighton & Hove Albion vs FulhamEnglish Premier League, KO: 14:00 Oct 29, 2023, Amex Stadium
Brighton & Hove Albion will attempt to snap out of a difficult patch as they host Fulham in a Premier League fixture on Sunday. The Seagulls are still solid at home and should have the upper hand over Fulham, who have struggled on their recent travels.
It has been a tricky campaign for Brighton so far as they have struggled to replicate last season’s fine showings and are without a single clean sheet in nine matches. Things have been particularly rough in recent weeks as they are winless in their last three Premier League matches and suffered a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in their previous fixture.
While the defeat to Manchester City was disappointing, Brighton‘s performance showed signs of resurgence. The Seagulls will head into Sunday’s clash with some confidence after picking up a 2-0 victory over Dutch giants Ajax in the Europa League on Thursday.
In the midst of their recent struggles, Brighton have managed to remain fairly solid at Amex Stadium. They are unbeaten in four of their last five home matches across all competitions with 3-1 victories over Newcastle United and Bournemouth among their results in that run.
Fulham have also had their problems this season and are currently down in the bottom half of the Premier League standings. However, there is no present relegation danger as they hold a seven point gap above the bottom three.
The Cottagers have been more erratic than outrightly poor as they have claimed two wins and suffered two defeats in their last five Premier League matches. They were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham Hotspur in their previous fixture.
The defeat to Tottenham highlights a poor record on the road for Fulham, who are now winless in their last four away matches. Among their results in that run is a 5-1 defeat to Manchester City, although manager Marco Silva will be keen to channel the performance in the 2-2 draw at Arsenal.
How the bookies view it
Head to head
There have been 18 previous matches between Brighton and Fulham with both teams claiming seven wins each and four draws. However, the Cottagers did the double over Brighton last season with the clash at the Amex Stadium ending 1-0.
Players to watch
Ansu. Fati appears to be slowly finding his feet at Brighton and has found the net in his last two matches. The attacker could be worth keeping an eye on and is priced at 15/8 by bet365 to get on the score sheet on Sunday.
Fulham will be keen to take advantage of Brighton’s problems at the back and Bobby Decordova-Reid will be the one to watch on Sunday. The forward has two goals this season and is priced at 9/2 by Paddy Power to find the net on Sunday.
Anything else catch the eye?
Brighton have seen over 3.5 goals in eight of their last nine Premier League matches and a repeat could be on the cards at 5/4 with Paddy Power. They have also scored in both halves in their last five home matches and could be set for a similar pattern at 23/20 with BoyleSports.
