Nickname: The Seagulls
Stadium: AMEX Stadium (Capacity 31,800)
Manager: Graham Potter (ENG)
Last Season: 9th
|Julio Enciso (Libertad) €11.6m||Yves Bissouma (Tottenham Hotspur) €29.2m|
|Simon Adingra (Nordsjaelland) €8m||Leo Östigard (Napoli) €5m|
The second half of last season saw Alexis Mac Allister earn a regular role in the side. Now he’s fully adapted to the Premier League, expect an improvement on the 5 goals and 2 assists he bagged in 2021/22. The talented midfielder will also have his sights on a place in the Argentina squad for the World Cup this winter.
Predicted Formation: 3-4-3
Brighton have a flexible style of play and are happy to adapt their formation around the strengths and weaknesses of their opposition. They love keeping the ball and have a clear ability to dominate games from a possession stance. When the Seagulls have the ball in midfield, don’t be surprised if they take on a 4-2-3-1 formation, where the wing-backs push on to start and support attacks.
|Man Utd (A)||Brighton dominated Man Utd 4-0 in their last contest. This will be Erik ten Hag’s first league game in charge.|
|Newcastle (H)||Premier League matches between these sides have never featured over 3.5 goals.|
|West Ham (A)||Six out of the last seven fixtures between these two have ended in a draw.|
|Leeds United (H)||Both clashes last season ended in draws.|
|Fulham (A)||When the teams met in the 2020/2021 season, both games finished 0-0.|
Brighton will be looking to narrow the gap on wealthier rivals by integrating smart tactics. If they inject some more tempo into their possession-heavy style, we could see a lot more opportunities in front of goal. They should also focus on the Amex becoming a fortress. A 16th place finish in the home-only league table last season simply isn’t good enough for a side that wants to challenge for the European places. If home form doesn’t improve, and without key names such as Bissouma and Burn, it’s hard to see Brighton meeting last campaign’s points tally.
Has Potter got the tactical clout to make up for a lack of transfer spending?

Did you know? The Seagulls were the only professional team in Sussex from 1920 to 2011. This was until Crawley Town were promoted to the Football League.
