Southampton vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 4 December 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.

Brighton had a great start to their season, and it resulted in them racing to the top tier of the table. However, they were unable to sustain that form, and are currently on a long winless streak.

There are no signs which indicate that their dismal run would be over anytime soon. And the desperate Southampton will be ready to pounce on this opportunity.

They are at home this weekend, and after a tough schedule, they finally have an easier game on sights.

Moreover, they have been on a rather great run at home lately, and also have the better h2h record over the years.

By the looks of things, expect a win for Southampton this Saturday.
