Brighton and Bournemouth meet today, with South Coast bragging rights up for grabs. They have made rather contrasting starts to this season, and are hungry for wins for different reasons — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Brighton have been one of the stories of the season so far. Roberto De Zerbi’s side have taken up where they left off with their brand of attractive, attacking football now bolstered by the arrival of star name Ansu Fati. Their four wins in the EPL include notable victories against Manchester United and Newcastle but the home loss to AEK Athens in their first ever European encounter will be a blow from which they will need to recover quickly.
Things have not been going so well for their Bournemouth. Yet to win a game this EPL campaign, the Cherries have three points by way of as many ties. It's in attack where the problem lies with just four goals so far. Tyler Adams remains out due to injury. Alex Scott is still a long way away from full fitness.
Here's how they line up:
Brighton: Verbruggen, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Estupinan, Dahoud, Gilmour, Adingra, Welbeck, Ferguson, Buonanotte
Bournemouth: Neto, Kerkez, Kelly, Zabarnyi, Aarons, Cook, Billing, Christie, Tavernier, Kluivert, Solanke
All the details you need to watch from anywhere are down below. Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out how to watch Premier League live streams.
