Hosts with five points less ( but two matches less, too) then Bournemouth and only five points far from relegation but could helped here by the bad away performances of the opponent ( 4-0-12 15/37) that adds, to the already second worst away defense and third worst one in whole league, huge problems at the back.
Rico ( 5+7) injuried against Burnley joins already out Daniels ( 17+4 1g) and the team remain without both recognized left backs probably till the end of season. Guests also without Francis ( def.13+4 S. Cook ( def. 26 1g), Surman ( midf.16+2), L. Cook ( midf.8+5) and is also under question regular keeper Begovic ( 24) after mistakes in two of the three goals suffered by Brighton in last round. In last eight rounds Bournemouth gained only two home draw and an away win against poor and now relegated last on table Huddersfield.
Brighton comes from two consecutive losses, but last one against Chelsea and latley probably disturbed also by final phasis of FA Cup, but now they out cause defeat against City and can be fully focused on safety.
For this round could return midf. Gross ( 18+1 2g) out since early february and key player last season in which scored 7goals and second assistman March ( midf.27+3 1g) out against Chelsea and in Cup, so other factor in their favour that probably they'll be full team, having no other players out.
Odds already started to drop for hosts.
