BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
Norwich take on Brighton this weekend, with the hosts finally picking up their first point of the season in their last game.
It’s been a long season already for Norwich and we are only seven games in. They have one point so far but that came in their last game. Norwich drew 0-0 with Burnely but the fact it was their first point and clean sheet could give them a big boost of confidence.
Now, it hasn’t been the best of starts for Norwich, however they have now played Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City. These aren’t the games they will be expecting to get points from. They need to try and forget about these results and look to pick up points against the lesser sides.
The hosts will take anything from this game. The last performance was a big improvement defensively and one they will need to reproduce this weekend. Brighton will take the game to them and Norwich will be the underdogs in this one.
The Seagulls couldn’t have imagined this start to their season. They have lost just one of their seven games this season and are sitting 6th, two points off the top. Brighton drew with Arsenal in their last game, which was another good result.
Brighton’s aim for this season will now be a top ten finish. They are playing some fantastic football and if they can carry this on then a top half will just be the minimum.
Against Norwich, we’re expecting another exciting Brighton performance. They are playing with a lot of confidence, but have scored just eight goals. It has shown so far they have been clinical and will need to keep this up to keep the good form going.
Cantwell and Byram are out for the hosts, with Zimmermann and Normann doubtful.
Welbeck, Alzate and Webster are injured. Mwepu and Bissouma are both doubts.
This is going to be a close game and we think Brighton’s current form should be too much for the hosts.
