Aston Villa and the Draw

When you immediately think of these two’s fortunes to date, you focus on the stunning start made by Graham Potter and Brighton.

And then because you hated Steven Gerrard because he was better than the best central midfielder at your club in the early 00s, you laughed at Villa’s misfortunes.

Ironically, if Villa were to win this, there would be three points between the sides. Figure that.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The one thing both of these teams have is pace en-masse. This will be relentless from the off and given Villa are still loose in the early days of Unai Emery’s guidance, he’ll likely ride this wave until he gets his players back after Qatar.

Brighton themselves are in the habit of simply outscoring teams – their 4-1, 3-2 and 5-2 victories this season given you an indication of that – two of them coming in the last two games.

Over 3.5 Goals

Each of Villa’s last three games have seen four goals, while Brighton themselves have had four goals or more in their last three.

This feels like a forced identity from both and given the youthful nature of the squad, probably not something you can hone back in too easily.

Leon Bailey and Jacob Ramsey have burst onto the scene and for better or worse, their lack of devotion to calming the game down will see frenetic end-to-end chances.

Leon Bailey to Score Anytime

Speaking of the man, he’s now the focal point for Villa going forward. On one hand, that’s concerning given I’ve got sandwiches older than him in my fridge, but on the other, getting used to producing at this level on this stage so early is a real indicator of quality.
