Latest Brighton & Hove Albion News
After a run of seven games unbeaten across all competitions, Brighton came unstuck on Sunday, going down 3-2 to 10-man Chelsea, though there was encouragement to be taken from the performance.
It came on the back of a 1-0 win away at AEK Athens that saw Roberto De Zerbi’s side qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League and though they have a game against Marseille next week before European football wraps up for the festive period, they now have a prolonged period to focus on domestic matters.
They will be keep to shore up at the back in the absence of Lewis Dunk having shipped five goals in their last three leagues matches - against Chelsea, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United - and so back-to-back home games against Brentford and Burnley should be the right sort of challenge for the Seagulls to string a couple of good results together.

Brighton Betting Odds
Brighton & Hove Albion are debuting in European football this season, following last season’s sixth-place finish.
Roberto De Zerbi himself has admitted they may struggle to balance domestic and continental commitments, although this doesn’t appear to have affected the Seagulls much so far.
Brighton Premier League Top Four Odds
Having finished sixth last season, it doesn’t feel to farfetched to suggest that Brighton could challenge for a top four spot.
They’re currently priced at 15/8 to enjoy back-to-back top six finishes, while you can get Brighton at 8/1 to break up the established elite and claim a Champions League spot, which would be some achievement.
Brighton Europa League Odds
Albion are currently priced at 18/1 to win the UEFA Europa League, fourth-favourites, behind Liverpool, Roma and Bayer Leverkusen, all of whom have won Europa-based competitions in their history.
These odds have taken since the start of the group stages, with the Seagulls first suffering a shock 3-2 home defeat at the hands of AEK Athens on matchday one.
Brighton did get off the mark last time out, coming from 2-0 down to draw with Olympique de Marseille at Stade Vélodrome, but go into their double-header against Ajax realistically needing to win.
Nevertheless, given that Ajax are a complete basket case, currently third-bottom of the Eredivisie, this is more than achievable, so get in now and back Brighton while they’re still 18/1.

Latest Brighton Stories
Originally established in 1901, Brighton were initially known as Brighton & Hove United before changing their name to Albion later that year, and they replaced the defunct team Brighton & Hove Rangers. And in 1910, they won the Charity Shield when they beat Aston Villa, although staunch supporters might not count it as a piece of silverware.
After a 30-year absence from England’s top-flight division, Brighton took their place in the Premier League for the first time for the 2018/19 campaign, and they survived, finishing two points above the drop zone in 17th place.
Over the past couple of seasons, Brighton, who play their home games at the AmEx Community Stadium, have enjoyed a rapid ascendancy over the past few years. Graham Potter guided them to ninth in the 2021/22 campaign with a tally of 51 points.
But last season, De Zerbi who took over the reins in September provided lift-off as Brighton finished sixth to earn a coveted Europa League spot, and the Seagulls were at one point in contention for a top-four finish with a 3-0 victory away to Arsenal at the Emirates one of the undoubted highlights of their campaign.
Although Brighton have never won a domestic piece of silverware, they have come close a couple of times in the FA Cup, and they went out in the cruellest of manners against Manchester United in the semi-finals via a penalty shoot-out.
There have been some eye-catching signings made this summer, including Mahmoud Dahoud from Borussia Dortmund, while James Milner’s vast experience (619 Premier League appearances and counting) could overtake Ryan Giggs and move into second spot. He will give the younger players a lift in the dressing room, and he could well play out his career at Brighton having signed a one-year deal at the grand old age of 37.
De Zerbi will be hoping to push on to greater heights this forthcoming season, and with Europe too, it will be fascinating to see how Brighton fare.
