Wolves v Brighton Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews

Molineux - Premier League

Brighton are in crisis mode as sit just two points clear of the relegation zone before their trip to Wolves on Sunday afternoon. The home side may have suffered a surprise loss to Southampton but have exceeded expectations this season and are full of confidence.

Past Meetings

A second half strike from Glenn Murray was enough to ensure a Brighton win when the sides last met, despite Wolves dominating 60% off possession.

Team News

Nuno Santo has a fully-fit squad to select from, and may well attempt to re-establish confidence by fielding a similar XI to that which lost last weekend. Morgan Gibbs-White could make another start in midfield, with the 19-year--old impressing in recent weeks.

Anthony Knockaert remains out follows his red card suspension, meaning Pascal Gross may start a second consecutive game. The midfielder hadn't played since February until Tuesday and Chris Hughton will hope that another game under his belt will improve his form.

Wolves v Brighton Predictions and Previews

Wolves may have dropped behind Leicester in the table last weekend, but regardless of how their game in hand plays out, the club will be delighted with their first season back in the Premier League.

An top-half of the table finish, whilst playing entertaining football, with a group of young players will have ensured that Nuno Santo's side play out their remaining five games in high spirits. Following their FA Cup defeat to Watford is was expected that Wolves would struggle against Southampton and they will look to make up for a poor performance this weekend.

Their hosts impressive season could well come at Brighton's expense, as following several seasons in the Premier League, relegation appears a possibility. The Seagulls have gone five games without a win, and more importantly, without a goal. Their overreliance on Glenn Murray has finally taken its toll, with the striker off form at just 3/1 to score, they appear toothless in attack, whilst the defence was torn to shreds by Bournemouth in recent 5-0 mauling.

Chris Hughton knows his team well, as the eighth longest serving manager in the English Premier League, but even he may be out of ideas on how to turn his side around. With a difficult run-in coming up, Brighton may be reliant on the poor form of Cardiff to keep them up.

It will take a monumental turn-around from the manager to achieve any points at the Molineux, especially with Wolves desperate for a win, but if anyone can mastermind the Seagulls' escape, its Hughton.

Reccomended Bets

Raul Jimenez to score anytime at 6/4

The Mexican has been a revelation for Wolves and will enjoy playing against a shaky Brighton back line.

Wolves to win to nil at 13/8

The hosts have a point to prove and will take Brighton apart if they play like they have in recent weeks.
