Aston Villa welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion at the Villa Park
Aston Villa welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion at the Villa Park in a game from the 9th round of the Premier League. We are going to discuss with you this match during our free English Premier League predictions for the coming weekend. Are you ready?
After eight games played since their return to the elite division, Aston Villa are 15th in the standings with 8 points. The former European champions are just one point above the relegation zone, so they surely could use some points right now. One thing is for sure – it’s going to be a difficult season for them.
Since the beginning of the campaign, Aston Villa have won just two matches. One of these games was in the previous round, when Dean Smith’s boys played probably their best game for the season. Aston Villa visited Norwich City at the Carrow Road and celebrated an amazing 5-1 win. It was a Brazilian spectacle by Villa, because Wesley scored a brace, while Douglas Luiz added one more. Jack Grealish and Conor Hourihane also put the ball behind Norwich City’s Michael McGovern’s back.
This was a great day for Aston Villa. They should continue like this in order to feel sure in their survival.
Brighton & Hove Albion are just one position above their next opponent, being 14th in the standings with 9 points. Just as Villa, Brighton & Hove enjoyed their second win the league before the break.
Two weeks ago Brighton & Hove hosted Tottenham Hotspur at the American Express, enjoying one of their best wins lately. Graham Potter’s boys crushed the Champions League finalists with 3-0. Neal Maupay opened the score for the hosts, while Aaron Connolly finished Spurs with two goals in Hugo Lloris’ net.
After such a convincing win against a powerhouse like Tottenham, Brighton & Hove should be confident enough to do well at the Villa Park on Saturday. But Aston Villa are also coming off a win, so in our free English Premier League predictions we expect a really competitive game between these two sides.
