Brighton’s season appears to be heading towards an underwhelming finish. The odds of repeating last season’s top-six finish are looking extremely remote, and the Seagulls are now six games without a win. That run includes a dismal defeat to Bournemouth, and losses against Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool. Like many teams in the EPL, Brighton have been impacted by injuries, and it’s shaping up to be a limp end to a disappointing campaign 

For Aston Villa, it’s been a season of (mostly) highs. The Villains are still in a strong position to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League. They now have a seven-point gap on fifth-placed Tottenham having played an extra game. However, the positive mood surrounding Villa Park did take a hit this week when the side were comfortably beaten in the first leg of the Europa Conference League semi-final by Greek team Olympiacos. 

Brighton vs Aston Villa is a particularly important match for the away side, but the Seagulls will be desperate to get back that winning feeling. Make sure you don’t miss this Premier League match, and down below we’ve got a guide to watching it online from anywhere. 

Also, make sure you don’t miss any of the remaining EPL action by checking out our full how to watch Premier League live streams hub.
