Following their 2-0 win at Amex Stadium in August, Brighton & Hove Albion are looking to secure their first league double over Watford since 1990/91 in the old second division.
Brighton have lost just one of their last 13 Premier League matches against promoted sides (W6 D6), keeping a clean sheet in each of their last five (W4 D1) since a 1-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion in February 2021.
The Seagulls have drawn 12 of their 22 Premier League matches so far this season (W6 L4), the joint-most by a side at this stage of a Premier League campaign, along with Ipswich Town in 1992/93. Their last six draws have all ended 1-1, with Graham Potter’s side coming from behind to draw in each of those contests.
This will be Watford manager Roy Hodgson’s 150th Premier League match as a manager since turning 65, becoming only the third manager to take charge of that many games aged 65+, after Sir Alex Ferguson (245) and Sir Bobby Robson (188).
