Brighton v Stoke

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Only seven first-half goals have been scored in Brighton’s 11 league games
Expert verdict
Defensive excellence was the hallmark of Brighton’s promotion charge last term but the goals have started to flow with Glenn Murray inspiring recent away wins at West Ham and Swansea. The Seagulls have also claimed creditable home draws with Everton and Southampton and, having already beaten West Brom and Newcastle at the Amex, should be confident against an underwhelming Stoke. The Potters claimed a much-needed 1-0 win at Watford in their last away fixture. However, they had just 30 per cent of possession.
