Early team news …
Solly March and Jose Izquierdo are both sidelined with injury for Brighton, while Lewis Dunk missed their match against Tottenham with illness.
Bournemouth’s current list of the lame and halt is considerably longer, and Eddie Howe has had to plan for this game without Nathan Ake, Adam Smith, Arnaut Danjuma, Charlie Daniels, Lloyd Kelly and David Brooks. Simon Francis could return today after sitting out his side’s game against Arsenal with bad bruising.
Premier League: Brighton v Bournemouth
The games continue to come thick and fast and today’s festive action kicks off at the Amex Stadium, where Brighton host fellow seaside outfit Bournemouth. Brighton were perhaps a little unlucky to lose against Tottenham on Boxing Day, while Bournemouth shared the points with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.
Locked together in 15th and 16th place, the two sides are level on points and goal difference, but with Brighton having the edge by dint of having scored two goals more. With both sides looking nervously over their shoulders, we’ll find out what, if anything, gives between from 12.30pm (GMT). In the meantime, stay tuned for team news and build-up.
