The beautiful American Express Community Stadium will be the venue has Brighton & Hove Albion host newly-promoted Watford on matchday two of the Premier League.
Brighton would have had mixed thoughts heading into their first game of the season. Of course, there are harder teams to face than Burnley in the Premier League, but Burnley can never be discounted, either. Turf Moor is always a challenging venue to visit, however Brighton did manage a 1-2 away win after going 1-0 down in just the second minute of the game.
Currently sitting in eighth place in the Premier League, Watford are the next opponents, a game Brighton should be able to win as long as they approach the game in the right way and do not underestimate a Watford side that may have only just returned to the top flight but are certainly capable of doing some damage.
Watford will also be pleased with their start to the season. The Hornets beat Aston Villa 3-2 – a scoreline that doesn’t flatter them as much as it could have given that they were 3-0 up until the 70th minute and Villa’s second goal was a 97th-minute penalty courtesy of Mike Dean.
Watford will be looking to take this form to the American Express Community Stadium on Saturday evening where they face Watford, before welcoming Crystal Palace to Vicarage Road three days later in the EFL Cup.
Head to head, Brighton and Watford last clashed in the Premier League the season before last, where it was Brighton that got the upper hand between the two fixtures. Brighton won 0-3 away at Vicarage Road towards the start of the 2019/20 season, then it finished one apiece at the AMEX in the reverse fixture.

Of course, neither of these teams will be tipped for the Premier League title this year, in fact, quite the opposite, with a relegation battle being a possibility for both sides. However, Leicester were in the same boat in 2016 when they won the title. Here are the current outright odds for the Premier League title this campaign:
Brighton v Watford Teams
The Seagulls have been very smart with their transfers this summer. They managed to rake in an incredible £52.65 million from Arsenal for centre-back Ben White, and they’ve gone on to buy central-midfielder Enock Mwepu from RB Salzburg for a fee of around £20.7 million, as well as goalkeeper Kjell Scherpen from Ajax for a fee of around £4.5 million.
Great news for Brighton boss Graham Potter as the squad is currently without any injuries or suspensions heading into the second Premier League weekend of the season.
Watford on the other hand have had a number of players in and out of the club this summer, however, only three cash purchases, including central-midfielder Imran Louza from FC Nantes for a fee of around £9 million, and two cash sales, including centre-back Craig Dawson to West Ham United for a fee of around £2.07 million.
Watford boss Xisco Munoz also has no current injury woes or player suspensions to deal with as they travel to the south coast to face Brighton and Hove Albion.
