Brighton take on Aston Villa at the Amex this Sunday, which is their last match before World Cup. Brighton’s strong recent results, as they have won three games in a row, including the games against Chelsea and Arsenal, are notable enough to raise their supporters’ hopes that Seagulls make their winning streak record four. It must be good news for Albion’s fans to see that their new manager’s effort has started to pay off.
On the other hand, it will be the second PL game for Aston Villa since Unai Emery started being in charge of their manager. This game could be a good opportunity for this 51-year-old Spanish to prove that the previous massive victory against Manchester United was more than coincidence.
He said: “It’s a challenge for us but I like to have challenges in front like on Sunday because I think the only way to improve and show our capacity to get good results is to play against good teams with good players.”
Brighton have won only once at their meeting with Villa since they were promoted. Many fans might be concerned about these previous stats and pay attention if RDZ can break this jinx.
