Both clubs could really do with a win to kick some positive momentum into their respective seasons. Wolves have only won one of their last six Premier League games, while Brighton are currently 10 without a win - although they were unbeaten in eight of those.

Brighton team news

Leandro Trossard has been described as 'fine' following a recent arm injury, while Joel Veltman could return after being considered a doubt for the Spurs game that was postponed.

But the Seagulls are facing a bit of an injury crisis elsewhere. Shane Duffy's suspension adds to existing problems at the back with Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster still ruled out.

Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate are making progress with their respective recoveries but won't feature here. Adam Lallana, however, could make it back onto the bench at least.

Raul Jimenez is suspended for this one as a result of his red card against Manchester City.

But Wolves at least have no new injury concerns to worry about beyond long-term absentees Pedro Neto, Jonny Castro and Yerson Mosquera.

Brighton vs Wolves head to head record

This is the fourth consecutive season in which Brighton and Wolves meet as top flight clubs, having typically only sporadically faced each other in the lower leagues for much of the last 40 years.

Their overall head to head record is very even - 15 Brighton wins to 14 for Wolves - and that is actually reflected in their recent Premier League clashes. Only twice in six games has there been a winner, with four consecutive fixtures ending in draws from April 2019 to January 2021.

Last time they met, which was in May 2021, Wolves secured a 2-1 comeback win at Molineux thanks to late goals from Adama Traore and Morgan Gibbs-White.


Brighton vs Wolves score prediction

Brighton ended up with an impromptu rest as a result of their last game against Tottenham being postponed and will automatically be fresher here as a result.

Wolves are hard to beat and will consider themselves unlucky to have narrowly lost to Liverpool and Manchester City in successive games. But the loss of Jimenez will further blunt an already goal-shy attack that may give the hosts just enough of an advantage to snatch it at the death.

Prediction: Brighton 1-1 Wolves
