Brighton vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27th October 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium, Brighton.
Brighton have been notoriously tough to beat at home and they have lived up to that expectation so far this season.
The Seagulls started their Premier League campaign at the Amex with an incredible 3-2 win over Manchester United, and then picked up a win and draw from three subsequent games.
The only team to beat them at their own backyard is Tottenham Hotspur, still they manage a respectable 1-2 scoreline in that match.
It is clearly evident that Brighton are no more a defensive side as they scored 7 goals from their 4 home games so far this season.
Brighton is coming on the backend of consecutive 1-0 wins, the latest at Newcastle United. This will definitely boost the confidence of Chris Hughton and his men, they are
However, the Wolves come into this match in better spirits and this is why they are tagged as the favourites. Owing to their away form and the confidence of being the Championship winners last season. They have lost just 2 of their 9 games so far this season.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s men lost 0-2 at home to Watford last weekend, but I would like to remind you that this is the same side that held Manchester United and City to stalemates this season.
