Brighton & Hove Albion vs Fulham betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions, team news and odds


Match preview

This game is sixth vs seventh, and very few would’ve predicted that would be the case before a ball was kicked.

Brighton & Hove Albion are above their visitors on goal difference alone, despite still being unbeaten in 2023.

Last weekend, the Seagulls were held to a 1-1 draw by fierce rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Pervis Estupiñán had a first half goal incorrectly disallowed by VAR, who drew the offside line from the wrong player, before Solly March did break the deadlock after the interval.

This means Roberto De Zerbi’s team have taken 11 points from their last five outings, also beating Liverpool in the FA Cup during this period.

Newly-promoted Fulham’s position is even more surprising, given that their last three top-flight stints had all resulted in relegation.

The Cottagers were winless in three before this, but have now won five of their last eight.

Back in August, Fulham actually beat Brighton 2-1 in West London, extending their unbeaten streak against the Seagulls to five matches.

Will that sequence come to an end in Sussex by the Sea?

Brighton & Hove Albion team news

Roberto De Zerbi is likely to name an almost unchanged line-up.

Up front, Evan Ferguson could return in place of Deniz Undav, who’s scored only twice, both in cup competitions, since making the move from Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.

Ferguson suffered a serious looking ankle injury in the FA Cup win over Liverpool, but returned off the bench last weekend, which is great news.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Sánchez; Veltman, Dunk, Wesbter, Estupiñán; Caicedo, Groß, March, Mac Allister, Mitoma; Undav.

Fulham team news

Similarly, there’s little reason for Marco Silva to make changes to his team.

Willian is likely to have recovered from a knock picked up against Nottingham Forest.

Cédric Soares and Saša Lukić both made their debuts in that match, but both are likely to begin the afternoon on the bench here too.

Shane Duffy made his move permanent in January, so can feature against the club he made 150 appearances for.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Reed, Pereira, Decordova-Reid, Willian; Mitrović.
