Brighton vs Southampton: The Premier League’s mid-table royal rumble is set for another chapter when the Seagulls and Saints meet for a south coast derby at the Amex Stadium on Sunday (Watch live at 9 am ET, on Peacock Premium).
The gap between 9th-place Newcastle (43 points) and 15th-place Aston Villa (37 points) is currently six points, with Brighton (40 points – 11th place) and Southampton (39 points – 13th place) squarely in the middle of the mess. Before hitting a six-game losing streak beginning in mid-February, Brighton were looking like nailed-on top-half finishers with an outside shot at pushing for European qualification. Graham Potter’s side has since rebounded in recent weeks, though, beating both sides of north London in back-to-back weekends before succumbing to the might of defending champions and leaders Manchester City midweek.
Southampton, meanwhile, turned their wayward season around and experienced something akin to a rebirth when Serbian billionaire Dragan Solak purchased 80 percent ownership of the club at the start of the new year (5W-4D-1L in 10 games), before losing four of five games (with 15 goals conceded). A victory over Arsenal, followed by defeat to Burnley, has left Southampton, and the outside world, wholly unsure of what’s to come next.
