Man Of The Match :
- Brighton have only lost one of their last nine home league games against Cardiff (W3 D5), and are unbeaten in five (W1 D4) since a 1-2 defeat in the Championship in October 2005.
- Cardiff haven’t done a league double over Brighton since the 1998-99 fourth tier campaign; they won 2-1 in the reverse meeting in November.
- Brighton are unbeaten at home to newly promoted clubs in the Premier League (P4 W2 D2 L0), and have only lost two of their 15 previous top-flight matches overall against such opposition on home soil (W7 D6 L2).
- Brighton have lost consecutive home Premier League games for the very first time. They last lost three in a row at home in league competition in January 2016.
- Only already relegated Fulham (6) and Huddersfield (4) have won fewer Premier League points in 2019 than Brighton (8).
- 50% of Cardiff’s away wins in the Premier League have come on the south coast (2/4), beating Southampton in both 2013-14 and this campaign.
- This will be the seventh managerial league meeting between Brighton’s Chris Hughton and Cardiff’s Neil Warnock; Hughton has seen his sides keep a clean sheet in five of the previous six (W4 D1 L1), but lost this season’s reverse fixture 2-1 in November.
- Brighton striker Glenn Murray has failed to score in seven of his eight league matches against Cardiff City. However, the one game he did find the net was his last such appearance at home against the Bluebirds, scoring a hat-trick for Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the Championship in September 2012.
- Brighton’s Glenn Murray has failed to score in his last nine Premier League home games. Despite this, he’s still scored five more league goals at the Amex Stadium this season than any other Brighton player (7).
