Brighton vs Aston Villa

Brighton head into the meeting with Aston Villa on a pretty dire run of form. A Europa League exit at the hands of AS Roma was sandwiched between a run of six games without a win in the Premier League.

The Seagulls’ last victory in the league came on March 10th at home to Nottingham Forest. Despite this, the South Coast outfit can still end 2023/24 in the top half of the Premier League.
