Brighton & Hove Albion vs AFC Bournemouth – Predicted Lineups and Betting Tips – 2019/20 Premier League

But Graham Potter has done a great job for the Seagulls this season, and a huge injury list has had its effect on Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth. But the Cherries will look to go for a victory with all they have, while Seagulls will try to sneak in the top half of the points table.
