Brighton to win the game

Brighton are aiming for a fifth win in the last six matches. Meanwhile, Swansea head into the match without a victory since the last League Cup game against Plymouth. The Welsh outfit have had a disappointing scoring touch over the last few games and they have struggled to find the back of the net until the recent game against Luton. Brighton are a strong defensive unit that can be hard to break down even for top teams.

Total goals under 2.5

Swansea’s lack of clinical finishing has led the team down on a couple of occasions in recent weeks. The goalless draws against Hull City and Millwall might have paved way for a 3-3 result during the weekend against Luton, but it still does not give confidence that the Welsh team will score a lot of goals. Brighton are more about being solid at the back.

Brighton clean sheet

The Seagulls continue to be a strong team at the back. It has been one of the primary factors that have driven their positive results over the last few weeks. Everton and Leicester have been able to score the only goals against Brighton in the last five matches. Swansea might have scored three goals during the weekend, but they are generally struggling for goals.

Brighton vs Swansea: Can Brighton extend their wonderful winning streak?


Brighton have had a good run in the EFL Cup and they could have certainly progressed into the latter stages last season if not for facing Manchester United in the fourth round. So far, the team has had a relatively easier run. The injury news for Brighton does not get any easy with Adam Webster and Kjell Scherpen ruled out, while Tariq Lamptey, Jürgen Locadia, Pascal Gross, and Yves Bissouma rated as doubtful.


Swansea do have the important objective of trying to avoid relegation from the Championship, as a poor start to the domestic campaign means that the Welsh team are only goal difference away from the bottom three. There are no injury problems for Swansea ahead of this game.
