Brighton v Aston Villa stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Brighton have endured a disappointing 2024 in comparison to the lofty standards they had previously set, accumulating just 14 points from 15 matches since the start of the year - only the bottom four teams in the division have accumulated less.

After excelling at home in the first half of the season, Villa's record on the road in 2024 has been impressive, with the 4-1 loss to Man City their only away defeat in the Premier League this calendar year.

Villa have won the last five meetings between the two sides, including the 6-1 demolition of the Seagulls in September 2023.
