Brighton v Watford: match preview

Brighton v Watford: match preview

Brighton and Watford pulled out perfect starts against tricky opposition and will be keen to start an early hot streak at the Amex Stadium. Graham Potter’s sider appear the better bet to do so as they are on a strong run – a positive result against Watford will make them six games unbeaten at home and equal their Premier League record. Xisco Muñoz has an ace in the hole with Ismaïla Sarr, though. The winger wreaked havoc in the Championship last season and will likely cause Brighton significant stress in defence. Graham Searles
