On Saturday the 2nd of February Brighton are at home against Watford in the Premier League with a kick off time of 15:00.
Brighton is 13th in the Premier League on 26 points and 7 from 18th place Cardiff City. It means they only need to get a few more wins from now until the end of the season to secure safety and against Watford is a great chance to get some more vital points on the board. They have had a tough run in lately as they have face both Manchester United and Liverpool which they lost both. The more disappointing result was in their last match in the EPL which they lost to 2nd from bottom club Fulham 4-2. They are at home against Burnley and play away at Leicester City in their next 2 matches.
Watford is having a great season so far as they sit in 9th place on 33 points which is equal to Everton in 8th and only 2 points from Wolves in 7th. They were beaten away at Spurs in their last match in the EPL 2-1 which they were unlucky not to secure a point. They play at home against Everton and are away at Cardiff City in their next 2 league matches.
Prediction – Draw
Both teams are having good seasons and are well matched which will make it an even game. Watford will have more confidence as they are on better form but Brighton has the home advantage which could play a part in the result. I think that the first half will be played out cautiously while they feel each other out before we see both teams going for it in the second half. I think both teams will manage a single goal each to make it a 1-1 score draw.
