Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Bromwich Albion – Prediction (Premier League – 26.10.2020)

H2H: Brighton vs WBA – Comparison.

Neal Maupay’s three goal scoring appearances this PL season saw him register Brighton’s first goal in each. Midfielder Grady Diangana remains West Brom’s only player to record their opening goal of a PL 2020/21 away fixture. Seven of Brighton’s last eight PL home games against newly promoted clubs have produced two or fewer total goals.

Brighton Insights.

Brighton’s equal-worst start to a Premier League (PL) season since their return in 2017/18 includes two home defeats to members of the league’s ‘big six’, suggesting they are likely to welcome a clash against struggling West Bromwich Albion. However, Brighton’s last two PL seasons have seen them record victory from just two of their six home contests with newly promoted clubs (D2, L2). Furthermore, their win rate of just 25% as a home favourite (W3, D6, L3) last PL season – the second-worst of all 20 clubs – fails to inspire confidence.

West Brom Insights.

Fortunately for the hosts, promoted West Brom are one of the few clubs facing even greater struggles in their worst beginning to a PL season of the last decade. The visitors have failed to score in consecutive PL fixtures, despite a total of eight shots on goal across the two matches. However, it is their defending – which has seen them concede at least two goals in four of five PL games and has shipped margins of multiple goals in all three PL defeats – which must be of concern. Notably, the visiting side of the day has failed to score before HT in four of West Brom’s five 2020/21 PL matches – a pattern which they’ll be hoping to snap, not least because they lament a league-worst second-half goal difference of -9 at all venues. Despite that, the second half has been the highest scoring half in just two of their five PL fixtures this season.
