Betting prediction: Brighton 0-0 Aston Villa

Many will expect Aston Villa to be relatively comfortable if not meant to grind out a close result against Brighton, but the Seagulls have registered four clean sheets in their last six, and their only loss in that period was a 1-0 away defeat at Manchester City. They’ve been much improved, and Villa’s up and down run of results could hold them back here potentially.

Brighton vs Aston Villa: Recommended bets

Halftime/Full-Time: Draw – Draw

On current form, Brighton has every chance to make Villa’s life difficult on Saturday and earn something against one of the better sides in the Premier League this season. Undefeated in their last five and boasting the second-best defensive record (two allowed) over that period makes them a decent bet to frustrate Jack Grealish and company this weekend.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Draw – No

It is a rare occurrence when Aston Villa struggles to create or find a goal against their opposition on the day, but they do in fact fail to be a consistent threat in the final third against sides that are good as a collective defensive unit. Brighton would be happy with a draw if asked, though more than that would never be argued with.

Brighton vs Aston Villa: Match preview

Fifth in the form table, defending well, and undefeated in their last five; it’s a line that reads like a club who are in contention for a credible top-half finish or better, but in the case of Brighton and Graham Potter, the Seagulls still languish in fifteenth.

After a 3-0 matchday two win against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park, Brighton went on two poor runs of form (six and nine matches respectively), with just the one win – ironically against Aston Villa – sandwiched in-between.

Though Neil Maupay, Leandro Trossard, Alexis Mac Allister, and Yves Bissouma have all performed well – not to mention the performances of Brighton’s backline – it just has not been enough to translate those shifts into enough three-point hauls to lift the club further up the table. But it could be enough for the remainder of the season that the Seagulls are organised well under Potter, and difficult to consummately consign to defeat in the process.

Some tactical tweaks when in possession could be necessary, however, and undoubtedly the long-term absence of Tariq Lamptey has hampered their effectiveness when attempting to drive forward at pace.

With their FA cup journey now over after their 1-0 defeat to Leicester City on Monday, Brighton’s sole focus for the remainder of the season is not only Premier League survival, but an improvement in its performances further forward. Once again they struggled to create, and Percy Tau did himself no favours with a performance that surely will not force himself into the team consistently. Against an Aston Villa outfit that has dipped in overall form, now is a good time to try to continue to build a platform of results; which hopefully would include more goals.

Aston Villa only need to keep faith in themselves to rediscover their consistency

It has been three wins and three losses for Aston Villa and Dean Smith over their recent period in the Premier League. After ending their three-match period against Chelsea and both Manchester clubs that results in just one point from a possible nine, the Villains bounced back against Newcastle with a 2-0 win. An unexpected loss to Burnley (3-2) immediately followed but was then again put to rest with an away win against Southampton. The same trend continued once more, with a loss at home to West Ham following the Saints result, only for Smith’s troops to best Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

Three wins from six is hardly diabolical, but a recent inability to string multiple results together has Villa slipping away in the form table, but overall, they remain in touching distance of a Europa League place while having matches in hand. But the answer could be simple if yet a cliché one regarding how Villa can get back to business in their very best iteration; just having faith in themselves as a collective.

Full credit must be given to the way Villa has recruited since their return to the Premier League on the back of direct investment from ownership, but most importantly, it has been how the signings have settled to life at the Birmingham-based club that has been a key to their success. Dean Smith recently reflected on this fact, citing the camaraderie at the club amongst not just the players but the staff as well as a key factor regarding how and why they are where they are.

The money spent has been excellent both in terms of quantity of funds brought to bear and the quality it has brought in, but core relationships from French-speaking players, to the Jack Grealish-Ross Barkley friendship, and the Brazilian connection between David Luiz, Wesley, and their translator signal a more familiar bond at the club that can so often help close the gap with bigger and better sides. These relationships on and off the pitch have certainly born fruit this term, and it could very well be at the root of Aston Villa kicking-on for the rest of the season.

Brighton team news vs Aston Villa

Graham Potter remains without the services of José Izquierdo, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Florin Andone, Tariq Lamptey, and Solly March.

Adam Webster should start if fit in time and recovered sufficiently from a rolled ankle.

19-year-old Ecuadorian international Moisés Caicedo will be available once again after completing his move from Independiente del Valle but is not likely to feature in the matchday XI.

 

Aston Villa team news vs Brighton

Dean Smith only has to contend with the unavailability of Kortney Hause and Wesley.

With a fully-fit preferred XI at his disposal, it is unlikely that Aston Villa will line-up in anything other than their usual deployment and personnel. Morgan Sanson and Marvelous Nakamba are likely to be on the bench of the back of it, and the same can be said for Trezeguet and Anwar El Ghazi.
