    Brighton and Hove Albion v Swansea City Betting Predictions and Match Preview

    Brighton and Hove Albion host Swansea City in matchday 28 of the Premier League on Saturday 24th February, 3:00pm at Amex Stadium. The hosts currently sit in 14th place in the table having drawn against Stoke City 1-1 last time out, while the visitors are in 16th after their 1-0 win against Burnley.

    Two teams still in the FA Cup, yet both facing a real battle to remain in the Premier League, lock horns at the AMEX Stadium, with a Brighton outfit who have been beaten only twice in 12 top-flight games on their own patch of late starting as 51% favourites for victory against a Swansea team who are unbeaten in five league matches themselves.

    Last Season's Score
    This will be the Swans’ first ever visit to what is a relatively new ground, though both Angel Rangel and Glenn Murray completed 90 minutes when the Welsh outfit ran out 1-0 winners on their most recent trip to this part of the world back in May 2008, with our Kickoff predictive algorithm rating the chances of a repeat performance at 8%.

    Team News For Brighton & Hove Albion
    Having made wholesale changes for the win against Coventry in the FA Cup, Chris Hughton must decide whether or not to include either Jurgen Locadia or Leonardo Ulloa in his starting XI for this encounter, after both strikers found the net against the Sky Blues.

    Team News For Swansea City
    Alfie Mawson is expected to shake off a minor knee injury to take his place in defence, whilst Andre Ayew could come into Carlos Carvalhal’s team.

    First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
    The aforementioned Murray (17% chance) boasts three goals in his last four competitive appearances, so the veteran finds himself amongst the contenders to break the deadlock here, along with Jordan Ayew (14% chance) for the visitors.

    This clash will take place at the AMEX Stadium at 3:00pm on Saturday 24th February. Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day later that evening at 10:30pm.
