Preview: Bournemouth vs. Brighton & Hove Albion – prediction, team news, lineups

Bournemouth play host to Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening with the opportunity to move significantly away from the Premier League relegation zone. At a time when the Cherries are one of the form teams in a congested survival battle, Brighton find themselves in sixth position in the standings.

Team News:

With their half-time introductions versus Fulham acting as the catalyst for Bournemouth’s comeback, Tavernier and Ryan Christie will expect to be recalled to the starting lineup. Jaidon Anthony and Dango Ouattara face losing their places in the side, and that may prove to be the only two alterations made by O’Neil.

Ryan Fredericks and Junior Stanislas are currently the only players unavailable for selection. Brighton will hope to be able to call upon Evan Ferguson who missed out at the weekend due to a knock.

If the Republic of Ireland international is passed fit, he could replace Danny Welbeck, while Adam Webster may be brought back into the defence. Tariq Lamptey is in line to return to the squad after no risks were taken with a knee issue on Saturday.

Bournemouth possible starting lineup:

Neto; Smith, Stephens, Senesi, Kelly; Ouattara, Rothwell, Lerma, Anthony; Billing; Solanke

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:

Steele; Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Estupinan; Gross, Caicedo; March, Mac Allister, Mitoma; Ferguson

Prediction: Bournemouth 1-2 Brighton & Hove Albion

While Bournemouth have pulled off some fine wins this season, very few have come in succession. With that in mind, we are backing Brighton’s superior quality to shine through in what should prove to be an entertaining fixture.
