Brighton v Bournemouth: match preview

Brighton and Bournemouth are 15th and 16th respectively and have identical records at the halfway stage of the season. But with only two wins between them from their last 16 matches combined, Graham Potter and Eddie Howe know nothing is guaranteed yet in terms of survival. Brighton were thumped 5-0 by the Cherries at home last season – their heaviest home league defeat since December 1973 – while Bournemouth are hoping to record successive away league victories for the first time since October 2018.
