Brighton - Southampton

The Seagulls are new champions in League One and they did it on impressive way. 17 wins and 4 draws at home, best attack in league (don’t count Peterborough, of course), best defence, eleven wins and a draw in last 12 games! Hats off. Biggest betting concern is will they “slow down” and play with the youngsters. Or will they try to reach 100 points as Poyet mentioned few times. I think they wouldn’t like to lose at home and to lose from big rivals. The matter of principles, I’d say.

The Saints are also in a great shape and are pushing for a direct promotion. Hudders won today and they dropped on 3rd place (two games in hand). They have eight wins of last ten (one draw and defeat) and considering scored and conceded goals they’re just behind Brighton. Key player Lallana will probably play (despite rated as in doubt), Chamberlen and defender Harding as well.

I guess there’s a possibility to Poyet send youngsters, lose the game and pretend he doesn’t care. I don’t believe in that and expect a fight. Two best attacks and two clubs that like to pass. Goals for me, once again.
