Key Points to Consider

Last 6:

Norwich City, coming off a 4-0 road loss against Arsenal, had five losses, one draw and zero wins in their last six overall. Brighton and Hove Albion, coming off a 3-0 home loss against Manchester United, had three draws, two losses and one win in their last six overall.

Momentum: Norwich City had been on a downward trend -- losing their last four games in the Premier League.  Therefore it was easy to see why Brighton would walk away with the win.

Head-to-Head: These two teams last met in Premier League action on November 2, 2019 and Brighton and Hove Albion won 2-0.

The Early Projected Leaders

Simulations run in conjunction with Payperhead247 projected Teemu Pukki, Aaron Connolly and Emiliano Buendía as the players most likely to score (two of these three players are from Norwich City).  In the end, it was Leandro Trossard who scored the lone goal.

Heading into Saturday's match, this one appeared to be a very close matchup. In 10,000 simulations Brighton & Hove Albion won 32.3 percent, Norwich City won 30.6 percent and there was a 37.1 percent chance of a draw.

The leading scorer for Brighton and Hove Albion is Aaron Connolly with a 23 percent chance of scoring one or more goals. When he has at least one goal, Brighton and Hove Albion has a 63 percent chance to win on the road.  That obviously did not happen on Saturday.

These two teams have scored a combined two goals in their last six Premier League games prior to Saturday's match. Norwich City hasn't scored in their last four Premier League games and they have just one goal in their last six Premier League contests, counting this one.

We were backing the UNDER and it came through in a big way.

Soccer Pick By Gameadvisers : Under 2¼ (+110)

Speaking after the game, Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “It's one of those days when the result is the most important thing.

“To get three points and a clean sheet you need a little luck, and we had it at the end with the post.

“But we're absolutely delighted.

“We've got five more games to go, and we're still fighting for the points.

“This is a unique season and what has happened in the past, we can't take too much from that.”
