Southampton are undefeated in four Premier League (PL) matches (W2, D2), scoring the game’s opening goal before half-time in each. However, they managed to maintain that lead through to half-time just twice (HT: W2, D1, L1). Three of those opening goals came before the 20th minute.Although an improving side, the ‘Saints’ have the second-worst home record in the PL (W5, D2, L10). Their biggest issue in home matches remains their defence, which has conceded an average of 1.94 ‘goals against’ per home game. That average has dropped to just 1.14 per game since the start of 2020.Brighton & Hove Albion have won just one of their previous five PL matches (W1, D1, L3). They failed to score in three of those matches, and have in fact scored over 1.5 goals in just one of their previous ten PL fixtures.When Brighton do score, it tends to be after half-time. That is particularly the case when travelling, with 62.5% of their PL away strikes coming in the second half. However, they have failed to score in half of their 12 away matches vs sides above them in the table (W1, D5, L6).

Players to watch: Southampton’s Stuart Armstrong can now boast a record of three goals across his previous eight PL matches - two came after half-time.Brighton’s Leandro Trossard has scored two goals across his previous three PL matches - each came before half-time.

Stat attack: Southampton have scored the opening goal in just 29.41% of their PL home matches.

Brighton’s average of 1.73 offsides per game is the fifth highest in the PL.Brighton have failed to win on any of their previous four league visits to St Mary’s (D3, L1).
