PREVIEW: ALBION V STOKE CITY

16 November 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Stoke City to the south coast on Monday evening, as they return from the international break to play their first Premier League match under the new LED floodlights at the Amex, kick-off 8pm.

The Seagulls are four matches unbeaten in the Premier League, and Chris Hughton’s team will be looking to extend that streak to five, as Mark Hughes and his team make their first trip to the Amex.

Glenn Murray scored the winning goal against Swansea City before the international break, leaving Albion eighth in the Premier League, while the Potters sit in 14th position before the weekend’s fixtures.

TEAM NEWS:

Hughton has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Potters' visit to the Amex Stadium on Monday evening following the latest international break.

For Stoke, goalkeeper Jack Butland will miss the game after breaking a finger in training for England, Geoff Cameron is also expected to be unavailable, but captain Ryan Shawcross should be fit to face the Seagulls.

FORM:


ALBION:

Hughton’s men go into Monday evening’s televised contest looking to make it five matches unbeaten in the Premier League.

The Seagulls picked up a 1-0 victory away to Swansea City last time out, thanks to Glenn Murray’s first-half effort from close range – with the striker netting his fourth goal in three matches.

He could set a new personal Premier League record should he find the net on Monday evening – as we revealed in ‘Stats Amazing’ on Wednesday, which fans can read here.

Prior to that victory in Wales, Albion had secured two 1-1 home draws with Everton and Southampton respectively, as well as an impressive 3-0 away win over West Ham United at the London Stadium.

STOKE CITY:

The Potters picked up their first away win of the season the last time they were on their travels in the Premier League, with a 1-0 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road. Darren Fletcher’s first-half strike was the difference between the two sides as Mark Hughes’s men secured all three points.

Their last game on home soil ended in a 2-2 stalemate with Leicester City, as goals from Xherdan Shaqiri and Peter Crouch twice cancelled out goals from the Foxes duo of Vicente Iborra and Riyad Mahrez.

Prior to those two results, the side had suffered a disappointing home defeat to AFC Bournemouth by a 2-1 scoreline, as well as a heavy 7-2 defeat away to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Their other previous point of the road, aside from the win at Watford, came via a 1-1 draw away to West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns at the end of August, where a goal from Peter Crouch cancelled out Jay Rodriguez’s goal shortly after the hour mark.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Xherdan Shaqiri

Signed from Inter Milan in the summer of 2015 for a club-record fee on a five-year deal, the Swiss midfielder has nine goals in 58 league appearances for the side since making the switch to England – including two so far this term.

Prior to his time at the San Siro, Shaqiri plied his trade with Bayern Munich for two-and-a-half years, scoring 11 goals in 26 league appearances for the German side, winning eight domestic and international honours.

His homeland team FC Basel were the first club he played for - he won three Swiss league titles with his first professional side and was twice named the division’s player of the year in both the 2010/11 and 2011/12 campaigns.

He has claimed 11 trophies during his career overall, the most notable including three Bundesliga titles and a Champions League winner's medal.

Match Reports

REPORT: ALBION 2 STOKE CITY 2

20 November 2017

Paul Hazlewood
Pascal Gross scores the first equaliser.
  • Pascal Gross scores his third goal of the season
  • Jose Izqueirdo nets second-half leveller for the Seagulls
  • Albion occupy ninth place in Premier League table
  • Seagulls now unbeaten in last five top-flight matches

Brighton & Hove Albion played out a 2-2 draw with Stoke City in an eventful game at the Amex Stadium. 

Maxim Choupo-Moting and Kurt Zouma goals either side of Pascal Gross's smart finish in the opening period were followed by Jose Izqueirdo's equaliser after the hour mark in an entertaining contest.

Chris Hughton named an unchanged starting eleven from the side that beat Swansea City, while goalkeeper Lee Grant came in for the visitors, in place of the injured Jack Butland.

The first chance of the game fell to the Seagulls inside three minutes, and it owed much to the quick thinking of Davy Propper, whose free-kick found Izquierdo on the left-hand side. The winger delivered a dangerous low ball into the area, but the in-form Glenn Murray missed his kick as the chance came and went.

Dale Stephens then went close with a stylish volley from distance – and although the midfielder caught his effort sweetly, it swerved away from Grant’s right-hand post.

Maty Ryan was called into action to tip Ryan Shawcross’ goalbound header over as the game began to heat up, and Lewis Dunk did well to block Xherdan Shaqiri’s fierce shot following a slip from Propper.

Propper then headed Anthony Knockaert’s free kick into the grateful arms of Grant as the hosts created a succession of chances – and you felt as though they might be punished for not capitalising on their dominance.

Indeed, the visitors made Albion pay on 26 minutes when Shaqiri dropped a superb ball into the path of Choupo-Moting, who had got in behind the Albion defence.

The striker then contested Dunk before bringing the ball down and side-footing his effort into the bottom corner.

Murray then had strong claims for a penalty waved away by referee Lee Mason eight minutes before the break as he went down under a challenge from Shawcross - who admitted post-match that there had been contact. 

But there was to be better fortune just around the corner.

Propper’s reluctance to give up on a ball on the right-hand side resulted in him delivering a low cutback that Gross swept under Grant to bring the home side level – it was the German’s third goal in 12 games.

However, no sooner had Albion got themselves on the scoresheet, they’d fallen behind again, and it was Zouma who was quickest to head home from close range.

The opening stages of the second half were more reserved than the first, but shortly before the hour mark Hughton's men got themselves back on level terms once more.

Persistence from both Murray and Izqueirdo at the far post, following Stephens's deep cross, resulted in the latter steering a loose ball under Grant at the second time of asking.

Both managers made changes with just under 20 minutes to go as Solly March replaced Izquierdo on Albion's left flank, while Peter Crouch came on in place of Shaqiri for the visitors.

Crouch's knock down couldn't find a visiting player before Gross sliced wide at the other end. It was his final contribution before being withdrawn for Izzy Brown, while Ezequiel Schelotto was Hughton's final change of the evening as he replaced Knockaert in a double switch.

The home side looked the more likely to fashion what would have been a decisive winner - but a spell of late pressure and corners came to nothing as the final whistle blew.

The Seagulls are now unbeaten in their last five matches with Manchester United at Old Trafford next on the agenda on Saturday afternoon.

ALBION: Ryan; Bruno ©, Dunk, Duffy, Bong; Knockaert (Schelotto 82), Stephens, Propper, Izquierdo (March 83); Gross (Brown 83), Murray.
