Brighton & Hove Albion are set to play hosts to Southampton at the American Express Community Stadium on Monday in their next English Premier League game.

Brighton & Hove Albion come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the English Premier League at the American Express Community Stadium.

Portugal international Diogo Jota put Liverpool ahead in the second half, but a late penalty from German midfielder Pascal Gross secured a draw for the Seagulls.

Southampton, on the other hand, lost 3-2 to Manchester United last Sunday at the St. Mary's Stadium.

Polish centre-back Jan Bednarek and England international James Ward-Prowse scored first-half goals to put the Saints ahead, but a goal from Portugal international Bruno Fernandes and a brace from veteran striker Edinson Cavani sealed a comeback win for Manchester United.

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Southampton Prediction

Brighton & Hove Albion have played some good football, but have not been able to procure the result they often deserved. Graham Potter's side have talented youngsters like Ben White, Tariq Lamptey and Aaron Connolly in their squad, and they will have to ensure that the Seagulls get a result that matches their performance.

Southampton, on the other hand, have impressed under the management of Ralph Hasenhuttl. The Saints sit sixth in the league table, and despite missing star striker Danny Ings due to an injury, the likes of Che Adams and Theo Walcott have filled in admirably.

Southampton were very close to securing a result against Manchester United. Given their current form, they could prove to be a stronger team than Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday night.

Prediction: Brighton & Hove Albion 1-2 Southampton
