Hello and welcome to the latest instalment of Brighton’s quest for just deserts. They have been comically unlucky this season, ever since Leandro Trossard hit the woodwork 47 times against Manchester United in September. If you’re into the whole Expected Goals thing, Brighton deserve to be fifth in the table with 45 points. But in the actual table they are 17th, with 26 points, and in serious danger of becoming one of the best teams ever to be relegated from the Premier League.
While Brighton’s bad luck has been on the field, Southampton’s has been off it. A grotesque injury list derailed them after a brilliant start to the season, and they have lost nine of their last 11 league games. They should have enough credit in the bank to stay up. For Brighton, there’s still a lot of work to do.
Kick off 12pm.
