Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Brighton & Hove Albion Tips and Prediction
Last weekend’s all-action match between Brentford and Wolves, in which Steve Davis’s team rallied from behind to rescue a draw at the Gtech Community Stadium, was summed up by two incredible goals and a red card for Diego Costa.
Ben Mee’s acrobatic effort gave Brentford the lead before Wolves’ leading goal threat Ruben Neves slid in a clinical equalizer. The latter was then involved in a last-ditch brawl with Costa, who moved his head in the direction of the Bees defender and was dismissed for his troubles.
Some people were surprised to find that Costa was sent off for the first time in the Premier League last weekend, but Davis was uninterested in learning about it because his team is still mired in the relegation zone, sitting in 19th position and two points from safety.
If Wolves were already having trouble scoring goals before attracting Costa back to the Premier League, their efforts to raise a league-low goal total of six have not been helped by the Spaniard’s red card, but 19 conceded is the fewest of the bottom seven teams.
However, Wolves have only lost two of their seven home games in all competitions this season, with the most recent one coming in that thrashing against Leicester City, so a trip back to Molineux is just what the doctor ordered for them as they look to end a three-game losing streak.
Graham Potter’s return to the Amex was not welcomed by all Brighton fans as he sought to show his former employers what they were missing, but the home crowd departed in ecstasy after witnessing the Seagulls thrash Chelsea last weekend.
Trevoh Chalobah and Ruben Loftus-Cheek both scored two own goals, and Leandro Trossard and Pascal Gross also scored in Brighton’s memorable victory. Brighton certainly picked the perfect time to end their five-game losing streak.
With three losses and two draws in his first five games, De Zerbi’s first win as manager came against Chelsea. As a result, the Seagulls are still in the race for a playoff spot, sitting eighth but only one point behind Fulham, who have played one more game.
De Zerbi’s next task is to turn around Brighton’s dismal recent road record, which has seen them drop three and draw one of their last four away games while giving up at least two goals on each occasion. If things go well, however, Brighton could become the first team to ever win three Premier League games by a three-goal margin or more.
Although the Seagulls defeated Wolves at Molineux last season after losing six straight Premier League matches against the visitors prior to that, it has been more than 30 years since the South Coast club recorded back-to-back victories on the Molineux field.
It might be argued that the hosts are playing Brighton at the worst possible time because Costa wasn’t exactly stepping up to the plate for Wolves’ attacking conundrum, but his suspension has just made Davis’s difficulties there worse.
We can only see the Seagulls completing their difficult road stretch with a professional performance and three points to go along with it since they have a nearly totally fit team and morale that is undoubtedly at its greatest point of the season thus far.
