Aston Villa v Brighton team news

Aston Villa: Bertrand Traore will hope to be fit for this clash following a thigh problem. Kortney Hause, meanwhile, is rated 50/50.

Goalkeeper Tom Heaton could make the bench, while Ollie Watkins is expected to start up top once again, with Grealish, Ross Barkley and Trezeguet behind him.

Brighton: Boss Graham Potter is sweating on the fitness of four first-team players, with Solomon March, Aaron Connolly, Leandro Trossard and Christian Walton all pushing to return to the squad.

Lewis Dunk is back from a suspension and should slip straight back into the heart of defence. Jose Izquierdo may also miss out again.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Brighton

Villa’s goalscoring form this season has certainly caught the eye but crucially they have the joint-best defensive record in the Premier League to date.

And this puts them in good stead against a Brighton side that are labouring for goals of late. The Seagulls have made a habit of eking out draws recently but may struggle against this lung-busting Villa attack.

Indeed, even with Dunk back in the defence this could be a long day for Potter’s men. A home win – albeit not a walkover – appears inevitable.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 2-1 Brighton
