BHA vs SOU Dream11: Southampton make the short trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday evening looking to hit back from their dramatic defeat to Manchester United last weekend. The Seagulls enter the contest unbeaten in their last three matches, highlighted by last week’s 1-1 draw against defending champion Liverpool. Those results were much needed for Brighton, which has accumulated just 10 points and sits in 16th place right above the relegation zone. On the other side, the Saints have enjoyed a decent start and finds themselves in eighth place on the table. However, Southampton is winless in its last two games, highlighted by a stunning 3-2 loss to Manchester United at St Mary’s Stadium in its most recent fixture.

BHA vs SOU Today Match Prediction:
This has all the makings of a game which should be easy on the eye with plenty of attack-minded football combined with frailties at the back. Brighton may dominate much of the ball, but we feel that the extra cutting edge from the visitors in the final third will prove to be the difference. We predict a 2-1 win for Southampton in the BHA vs SOU Today Match Prediction .
DEF: White, Dunk, Walker-Peters, Vestergaard
MID: March, Bissouma, Ward-Prowse
FW: Maupay, Adams, Walcott
