Wolverhampton Wanderers v Brighton and Hove Albion Match Preview & Trends

Wolves looking to prey on the struggling Seagulls

The Sunday lunchtime fixture this week comes from Molineux as Grahame Potter takes his Brighton side up to the Midlands to face Wolverhampton Wanderers. Nuno Espirito Santo will be all too aware of the pressure mounting on him after spending a lot of money prior to this lackluster season. Wolves have largely failed to adapt to the loss of star Mexican striker Raul Jiminez through injury and have looked lost at times since selling Portuguese wizard Diogo Jota to Liverpool. 

Wolverhampton have drawn their last 4-times against Brighton and have drawn 4 out of the last 6 matches against Potter’s side. Wolves have also drawn 5 out of the last 6 home matches against The Seagulls. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men haven’t won their last 7 matches in a row against Brighton nor have they picked up a victory in the previous 6 fixtures against the same opposition at Molineux. If Wolves win, they would increase their lead over Brighton to 8 points in the league table.

There has been at least one red card in 3 out of the last 10 games between Wolverhampton and Brighton at Wolverhampton’s ground. Brighton have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and only one of their last 5 Premier League away fixtures. There have been fewer than 3 goals scored in total in each of The Seagulls’ last 4 games. If Brighton win, they would reduce the gap with Wolverhampton to a 2-point difference in the league table.

Key trends

Wolverhampton Wanderers have picked up an average of 1.29 Points Per Game in their 17 matches played at home

Brighton & Hove’s average Points Per Game in their 17 away games is 1.18.

Wolverhampton conceded at least 1 goal in 71% of their home matches.
