The Brighton vs. Stoke match will be played on Monday, November 20, at the American Express Community Stadium, Brighton. This is the last match of Premier League round 12. Brighton is currently 8th on the table with 15 points, while Stoke City is 14th on the table with 12 points at the moment.


  • Brighton is in a series of four matches without a defeat in Premier League. They recorded two draws at home and two victories in away games during that period.
  • Stoke is undefeated in their last two league games, but before that, they lost two matches in a row in the league.


These two teams played only nine matches against each other in the 21st century. Brighton recorded just one win, while Stoke won eight games in a row after that. However, they hadn't played a head to head match since their FA Cup clash in 2011, when Stoke easily defeated Brighton by 3:0.


Newly promoted Brighton started the season with only one goal - to avoid the relegation from Premier League. So far, they are performing well above the expectations, and they are nearer to the teams which will play in European competitions in the next season than the teams which are currently in the relegation zone. However, the season has just started, and they know that a winless streak in any part of the season can push them below the line. That's why is crucial for them to record wins against the teams which are below them on the table at the time, such as Stoke.

Stoke didn't have a great start of the season, but they are only three points behind Brighton. With an eventual victory, Stoke would climb the table and return in the battle for the seventh place on the table.

It is tough to predict the outcome of the upcoming game. Brighton is in a better form, but Stoke is a better team. We don't expect to see many goals, and the match might end in a draw.
