Unai Emery started life at Aston Villa in the perfect fashion last weekend, earning a thumping win over Manchester United.

It was their first win at United at Villa Park for almost 30 years and signified the start of a new chapter for Villa fans under a manager who has tasted success across Europe.

While they lost their midweek Carabao Cup game, Villa will be optimistic about life in the Premier League going forward. They face a tough away trip here, however.

Brighton have finally found some winning form under new manager Roberto De Zerbi. While the Seagulls had started positively under the Italian, it took six games for them to claim their first victory.

A thumping win over Chelsea was followed up by victory against Wolves last weekend. Brighton also earned a fine 3-1 win against Arsenal in their midweek Carabao Cup game.

They now have the opportunity to end this period of the Premier League with a win going into the World Cup break. 

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Three wins on the bounce in all competitions

     10 goals scored in their last three games

Reasons to be fearful:

     Lost their last two against Villa

     Haven’t won three consecutive league games all season

Brighton’s hopes of ending the season on a high rest on them beating Aston Villa at home, with their opponents coming into this game full of optimism following a win over Manchester United last weekend.

The Seagulls are in good form too, of course, and will fancy their chances of claiming another three points and go into the month-long World Cup break on a high.

They could even push into the top five if Manchester United fail to beat Fulham in their game shortly after this one finishes.

Roberto De Zerbi will be pleased with how his side have found form of late. They now have three wins on the bounce in all competitions, but have not claimed three wins consecutively in the league so far this season.

Can they continue that good form here?

Star Man – Leandro Trossard

The Belgian received a callup to the World Cup squad this week, earned off the back of his fine performances so far this season. He has seven goals from his 13 appearances.

Aston Villa FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Super win over Manchester United will have boosted confidence

     Good recent record against Brighton

Reasons to be fearful

     Could struggle against Brighton’s intensity

     Poor away form in the league this season

Aston Villa fans couldn’t have hoped for a better start than the one delivered by Unai Emery last weekend, beating Manchester United 3-1.

Villa were excellent from start to finish and played a lethargic United off the pitch at times with their direct and fast-flowing football.

Yes, they lost the repeat of that fixture in the Carabao Cup in midweek, although there will be positives to take into this one.

The main problem for Villa is their away form – they haven’t won a game away from Villa Park this season, drawing two and losing five. 

On away form alone, Villa would be 19th in the table. They will need to improve this dramatically if they are to push up the table.

Star Man – Leon Bailey

Was sharp and took his goal brilliantly against Manchester United last weekend. Looks like he could kick on under this new manager.

     Will be chances at both ends

     Brighton will be favourites at home

     Can Villa come up with another surprise win?

Both of these teams come into this in winning form, but it is Brighton that have looked the more organised and together over recent months.

Aston Villa have the players to score goals against any team, although Brighton are well-coached and will be hard to break down.

With the home crowd behind them, you would back Brighton to edge this and claim three points.
