1 - 2

Aston Villa

Alexis Mac Allister 1 Danny Ings 20 [PK], 54

Villa go home with all three points after win over Brighton.

Alexis Mac Allister scored the match's first goal for Brighton in the 1st minute. Villa's Danny Ings then responded with an equalizer in the 20th minute. Ings then netted a 54th minute strike to give Villa the win.

The Overview

  • Without seeing a lot of the ball (35% possession), the Villans managed to muster eight shots.
  • The Seagulls didn't generate enough chances, only mustering seven total shots throughout the contest.
  • Although they got the win, the Villans were wasteful in front of goal, only getting 25% of their total shots on target.

The Details

For Brighton, Solomon March and Pascal Groß pushed hard to create chances, but their 7 crosses each weren't enough to affect the outcome, while it was a frustrating game for Julio César Enciso, who only registered 18 touches of the ball. The Seagulls moved the ball about nicely despite their loss, completing 240 more passes than their opponents.

Brighton finally taste defeat. Meanwhile, Villa take six points from their last possible six.

Preview | November 13

Brighton & Hove Albion-Aston Villa

Villa look to end Brighton's winning streak.

Brighton are flying after winning two straight Premier League games and will hope to extend the run at home against Villa. The Seagulls will need a good result to hold off Chelsea's push up the table and avoid falling to 7th. Brighton have hopefully learned from their most recent league meeting with the Villans, a 0-2 defeat.

Brighton | WWLDL | 6th | Top Scorer: L. Trossard (7)

Brighton's recent form has seen them move up to 6th in the table. With an average of 1.5 xG (expected goals) per game, Brighton rank 5th in the league and they're clearly one of the most clinical sides in the league. Pascal Groß's 34 passes into the box this season ranks 7th in the Premier League. His creativity will go a long way to securing success for Brighton in this match. Leandro Trossard will be front and center in their attempt to prolong success. He has led them this year with 35 shots taken (11th in the EPL).

Villa | WLWLL | 13th | Top Scorer: L. Bailey (3)

Due to impressive form, Villa have moved up to 13th in the table. Villa have a high long ball ratio of 6.6 (6th in the EPL) which could find success against Brighton who are one of the weakest teams aerially. Ollie Watkins takes the most shots at goal for Villa. So far this season, he's taken 27 shots (22nd in the EPL).

Brighton-Villa Prediction: 2-1

This one could go either way, but Brighton's firepower looks likely to be the difference between the two teams.

Did you know? Villa have recorded 0 wins, 5 losses, and 2 draws on the road this season.

Can Brighton win and make it 3 out of 3? Will this be the start of a winning streak for the Villans? Find your favourite market and place your bet at PokerStars Sports.
