Brighton vs Aston Villa: how to watch live, stream link, team news

Brighton host Aston Villa on Sunday, with the Seagulls looking to break out of their slump as Villa close in on Champions League qualification.


Roberto De Zerbi appears to have checked out of Brighton, and so does his team. Last weekend they lost 3-0 at Bournemouth and they have failed to score in eight of their 15 Premier League games in 2024. That was after scoring in 39 different games in 2023. The decline has been significant since the Seagulls dropped out of the Europa League and with The Zerbi It seems very likely that the venture will continue this summer, but there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Seagulls. Injuries have hit them hard all season and Brighton’s European performances have pushed their small squad to the limit as they have won just three of their last fifteen Premier League games.

The exact opposite is true for Villa as Unai Emery’s side inch closer to qualifying for the UEFA Champions League. After them Last weekend 2-2 draw at home against Chelsea they sit fourth in the Premier League and are seven points clear of Tottenham with three games remaining (Spurs have two games remaining) as their incredible season continues. They are also having a great time in Europe, as this match is sandwiched between the Europa Conference League semi-finals against Olympiacos. Villa beat Brighton 6-1 in the second leg at Villa Park earlier this season and have won five in a row against Brighton, defeating them 14-3.

Villa have been rolling out the same team for some time now and given Thursday’s Europa Conference League semi-final first leg against Olympiacos, Emery will certainly rotate a number of players in and out. But he has preferred to hold the line-up as the likes of Watkins, McGinn, Konsa, Luiz and Bailey are all due to start. Morgan Rogers has also been a revelation in recent weeks and Moussa Diaby plays a more prominent role.
