Both Brighton and Southampton are happily nestled in mid-table safety, and that would surely have been the aim for both at the start of the season. 

There's only one point between them, and both have been frustratingly inconsistent of late — although Brighton probably have the upper hand in terms of form, having beaten both Arsenal and Tottenham. Southampton also beat Arsenal last weekend, but then again they lost 6-0 to Chelsea not long ago, so this one is hard to call. 

With neither side in danger of relegation and with no hope of European qualification, there's only points and pride to play for — which should make it an open, entertaining game. 

Here's how they line up:

Brighton: Sánchez, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Trossard, Mwepu, Mac Allister, Caicedo, Cucurella, WElbeck, Maupay

Southampton: Forrester, Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters, Tella, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond, Adams, Long

How to watch the Brighton vs Southampton live stream wherever you are

The Brighton vs Southampton live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.

Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to NBCSN, Peacock or another service and watch the game.

Canadians can watch the Brighton vs Southampton live stream on DAZN
