Brighton got the new Premier League season off to the perfect start with a 4-1 win over newcomers Luton and next face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Saturday 19 August.

Wolves were a touch unlucky to lose 1-0 to Manchester United in their curtain raiser last weekend and face another stern test against Seagulls this time out.

Wolves vs Brighton Prediction

  • Brighton & Both Teams To Score @ 5/2
  • Evan Ferguson – Anytime Goalscorer @ 6/4

Team News

Jakub Moder is a long-term absentee for Brighton, while Adam Lallana and Adam Webster are doubts after missing the season opener against Luton.

Gary O’Neil should have a full Wolves squad to choose from after his side came through their clash against Manchester United unscathed.

Brighton & Both Teams To Score @ 5/2

Brighton were one of the standout teams of last season in the Premier League, securing European football for the first time in the club’s history.

The Seagulls picked up where they left off despite losing Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo over the summer, beating promoted Luton 4-1 in their opening game of the new campaign.

Their conveyor belt of talent was on full display with the 21-year-old pair of Simon Adingra and Joao Pedro netting, while 18-year-old Evan Ferguson chipped in with a goal from the bench.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side recorded 27 shots, 12 of which were on target, in their dominant display and they look too classy for a Wolves side that could be vulnerable to the drop this season.

The aggregate score in the last three meetings between these two sides is 12-2 to the Seagulls, demonstrating the gulf between the two on paper.

However, Wolves did create plenty of chances against Manchester United, registering 23 shots in the process. O’Neil’s men could land on the scoresheet, although the class of the visitors is fancied to tell eventually.

Both teams scored in 61% of Brighton’s games last season and an away win with both teams finding the net is the pick.

Evan Ferguson – Anytime Goalscorer @ 6/4

Evan Ferguson scored from the bench against Luton but the young Irishman is likely to lead the line for Brighton in this matchup and looks to have a solid chance of netting his second of the campaign.

The 18-year-old scored 10 times in all competitions last season and with an increased attacking responsibility likely to come this way this term, he is fancied to flourish.

Take Ferguson to land on the scoresheet in this one.
