PREVIEW: SOUTHAMPTON V ALBION

13 September 2018

Linton Rogers
Albion travel to St Mary's Stadium on Monday night.

Brighton & Hove Albion return to Premier League action after a busy international break, and the Seagulls come up against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Monday evening, kick-off 8pm.

A number of Albion’s players have been away representing their respective countries, but Chris Hughton’s side have returned and regrouped for Monday’s game against the Saints in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

The Seagulls came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Fulham before the break, while Albion’s south-coast rivals sealed a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

It will be the third Premier League meeting between the sides, after the spoils were shared in both games between the clubs last season, as Albion finished 15th - four points ahead of Southampton in 17th.

TEAM NEWS:

Hughton confirmed that everyone is back in training ahead of Monday's game in Hampshire, and striker Florin Andone will feature for the club's under-23 side on Friday evening.

Southampton forwards Charlie Austin and Shane Long are both injury doubts after not training throughout the international break, but the pair could return to training over the weekend.



FORM:

The Seagulls have taken four points from their opening four Premier League matches - a spell of games which included their impressive 3-2 victory against Manchester United at the Amex Stadium.

After a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Watford, Albion bounced back with a memorable display against the Red Devils, before a respectable performance against Liverpool at Anfield, despite a 1-0 loss.

The Cottagers then arrived on the south coast and put themselves 2-0 ahead after Pascal Gross’s saved penalty - but Glenn Murray replied with two goals after the break to secure a point.

The Saints began their season with a goalless draw against Burnley in Hampshire, but back-to-back 2-1 defeats to Everton and Leicester City followed, as Mark Hughes’s team took just one point from their opening three matches.

But a first league victory of the campaign came at Selhurst Park before the international break, as goals from Danny Ings and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg claimed all three points.

LAST TIME WE MET:

Albion drew Southampton in the second round of the Carabao Cup this season, and the match looked to be heading towards a penalty shootout at the Amex Stadium.

But Charlie Austin’s late header from Nathan Redmond’s cross won the contest for the visitors, on a night which saw the Seagulls give first-team debuts to a host of players.

Ben Barclay, Will Collar and Viktor Gyokeres all came into the starting line-up for their senior debuts, while David Button made his first Albion start between the goalposts.

LAST TIME OUT: ALBION

Subs not used: Gunn (GK), Yoshida, Davis, Ward-Prowse.



PLAYER TO WATCH: Danny Ings

The forward joined the Saints this summer on an initial loan deal which becomes permanent in July 2019 - and the 26-year-old has already scored twice for his new side in the Premier League.

Ings struggled to get his chances at Liverpool due to injury and competition for places, following his move from Burnley, but the striker fired home on his first start for his new employers.

After his strike against Everton at Goodison Park, Ings also found the back of the net in Southampton’s victory against Crystal Palace in south London.

The striker recorded double figures in back-to-back seasons for Burnley in the Championship and Premier League, and Ings will now look to reignite his career with the Saints.

Match Reports

REPORT: SOUTHAMPTON 2 ALBION 2

17 September 2018

Paul Hazlewood
Albion celebrate Glenn Murray's 90th-minute equaliser at St Mary's.
  • Albion draw 2-2 with Southampton
  • Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Danny Ings on target for Southampton
  • Shane Duffy and Glenn Murray's goals earn Albion a share of the spoils
  • Albion are next in action against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday

Brighton & Hove Albion recovered from 2-0 down to claim a 2-2 draw for a second time in a row, as Glenn Murray's stoppage-time penalty rescued a point against Southampton.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Danny Ings looked to have put the Saints into an unassailable lead, but Murray struck late on to claim a point after Shane Duffy had halved the deficit.

Hughton made one change to the side that drew 2-2 with Fulham, as Yves Bissouma replaced the injured Pascal Gross.

The first chance of the game fell to Saints as Ryan Bertrand was allowed to race down the left flank and pick out Shane Long at the far post, but the latter’s header was comfortably saved by Maty Ryan.

The game gradually livened up after a cagey start, and it was Gaetan Bong and Solly March that linked up well to tee up Anthony Knockaert with a chance, but the Frenchman saw his shot blocked.

Nathan Redmond made a driving run down the other end and picked out Long, whose shot was deflected wide - but the bigger scare came from the resulting corner.

Hojbjerg headed the ball back across the box and after several blocked attempts inside the area, Wesley Hoedt fired over the bar from just a few yards out.

Redmond continued to look lively down the left flank and this time picked out the towering Mohamed Elyounoussi, who headed wide at the back post.

The hosts took the lead in emphatic fashion with 35 minutes played through Hojbjerg, as he latched onto a loose ball and rifled in a low-driven strike from distance.

Hughton’s men had a golden chance to level the scores shortly after the re-start when Davy Propper headed wide from Martin Montoya’s drifted ball into the box.

But Southampton still carried a threat, as Long latched onto a searching ball over the top of the defence, but the forward put his effort wide of the target.

Moments later Knockaert pulled the trigger from the edge of the area and stung the gloves of Alex McCarthy with his strike.

Despite showing signs of improvement, Albion were dealt another setback when Danny Ings was sent tumbling inside the area and the Liverpool loanee’s subsequent penalty nestled into the bottom left-hand corner with 65 minutes played.

But the deficit was halved just two minutes later courtesy of Duffy, who rose highest to meet Knockaert’s in-swinging set-piece to make it 2-1.

Ings could’ve got his second and Southampton’s third after capitalising on a lapse in concentration in Albion’s defence, but the striker saw his speculative effort curl just wide.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh was brought on in place of March with 20 minutes remaining and nearly had the desired effect when the Iranian flicked Knockaert’s cut-back just wide.

Jurgen Locadia was introduced late on and the Dutchman was quickly involved in the action, as he narrowly missed Bong’s in-swinging cross.

But just when it looked like Albion would be beaten, referee Anthony Taylor spotted an infringement inside the box and Albion were awarded a penalty. Murray fired straight down the middle to claim a dramatic late point, and send the away end into raptures.

ALBION: Ryan, Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Knockaert, Stephens, Propper, March (Jahanbakhsh 71); Bissouma (Locadia 76); Murray.

Subs not used: Button (GK), Bruno, Balogun, Bernardo, Kayal.
