They may only have been facing Exeter, but the Baggies’ first win for 137 days will have provided some light relief in what has been a terrible campaign, though being drawn away to Liverpool in the next round of the FA Cup was hardly an ideal follow-up.

Although West Brom remain without a victory in 20 Premier League matches, ten of those encounters have been drawn (29% chance), so there is every prospect of this contest ending all-square against opponents who have finished on level terms three times in five top-flight games of late.

Last season’s score

In a bizarre quirk of fate, the most recent three meetings between these sides have all resulted in a 3-1 success for the home team, including the Seagulls’ first win following promotion at the AMEX Stadium back in September.

The superstitious amongst you might therefore be keen to know that Alan Pardew’s men are given a 3% chance of winning 3-1 by our KickOff predictive algorithm, though 1-1 (13% chance), 1-0 (11% chance), 0-1 (11% chance) and 0-0 (10% chance) are much higher in the pecking order.

Top betting tips and predictions

Concentrating purely on the facts, it seems that this clash is destined to serve up under 2.5 goals (58% chance), with this being the case in 15 of the previous 19 Brighton away games, as well as in ten of the Baggies’ last 15 matches on their own patch.

Salomon Rondon (15% chance), fresh from scoring in the FA Cup at the weekend, is a major contender to break the deadlock for the hosts, whilst Glenn Murray (11% chance) is the Seagulls’ leading scorer this season with six top-flight goals.
