Past Meetings

Brighton won 3-0 at Watford on the opening day of the season, and the Seagulls have lost just one of their five Premier League meetings with Nigel Pearson’s side.

Team News

Brighton are once again likely to be without defensive pair Dan Burn and Shane Duffy through injury, although the Irish international is back in light training.

The hornets are boosted by the returns of Tom Cleverley and Ismalia Sarr from injury, but Nathaniel Chalobah and Daryl Janmaat are set to miss out again.

Brighton vs. Watford Preview and Predictions

Brighton battled back to secure a vital 3-3 draw away at West Ham last time out, but their recent form is becoming increasingly worrying for Graham Potter.

The hosts have won just one of their last 11 Premier League games, and they are now just two points outside the relegation zone.

Watford’s revival under Pearson has stalled a little in recent weeks, as two losses and a defeat has seen them slip back down into the bottom three.

However their away form has been good under the former Leicester City boss, with just one defeat in three away from Vicarage Road.

Neither side can really afford a loss in this game with the pressure building on both managers, and a draw, priced at 3.35, looks to be a good option.

The goals have not exactly been flowing for either side of late, and that is again expected to be the case this weekend. That means that an under 2.5 total goals scored bet could be a profitable choice, at 1.83

Recommended Bets

A 1-1 draw at 6.25

Brighton need to stabilise themselves ahead of a tough run of games, and Pearson will be eager to get his side back on track and move out of relegation danger.

Troy Deeney to score anytime at 2.60

Deeney’s form has been vital to Pearson following his arrival at the club, with the Hornets skipper returning from injury to score five goals in his last seven games.
