Southampton host Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday as the Seagulls scrap for points.

The Seagulls are winless in their last five Premier League fixtures and could end the weekend in the bottom three.

Boss Graham Potter oversaw a 2-1 defeat at home to Southampton when these sides last met in December – a late Danny Ings penalty proving the difference that day.

Both sides come into this clash on the back of miserable form, with Southampton recording to a 5-2 loss to Manchester City in midweek just days after ending their nine-game winless streak.

Potter would likely take a draw from this encounter, while Saints would see it as an extra point gained in their battle to stave off a plummet down the league.

Southampton v Brighton team news

Southampton: Neither Ings or Theo Walcott are expected to return until April, while Oriol Romeu could be out for the season with a broken ankle.

There remains little chance of seeing Michael Obafemi or Will Smallbone return to the field any time soon, but there is slight hope Moussa Djenepo will have recovered from a groin injury to make the bench on Sunday.

Brighton: Florin Andone and Adam Webster won’t be back until next month but Potter could welcome Aaron Connolly into the fold if the player recovers from a back problem.

Solomon March and Tariq Lamptey are out with knee and hamstring injuries respectively.

Our prediction: Southampton v Brighton

Saints will hope to forget Wednesday’s nightmare outing against City and inflict a second victory of the season over Brighton here.

But the Seagulls look set to dig in and scrap for a point on the south coast.

Potter needs defensive stability and the absence of Ings certainly blunts Saints’ attack. Don’t be surprised if this game features few chances.

Our prediction: Southampton 0-0 Brighton (13/2 at bet365)
