Aston Villa vs Brighton live stream: match preview

Aston Villa entertain Brighton on the final day of the Premier League season as they look to secure European football for the first time in 12 years – while the visitors will be riding high having done so for the first time in their history.

It's as you were for Villa, with Unai Emery naming an unchanged side from last weekend's draw at Liverpool. Top scorer Ollie Watkins will be looking to fire the hosts into Europe.

Victory for Villa will secure seventh spot and a place in the 2023/24 Europa Conference League – although defeat won’t cost them if Tottenham and Brentford also lose, to Leeds and Manchester City respectively. Clinching European qualification would round of a superb recovery for the hosts – who looked dead and buried prior to Unai Emery’s appointment just before the World Cup. Under the shrewd Spaniard, Villa have taken 46 points from a possible 72 – with the latest of those coming by virtue of the 1-1 draw away to Liverpool last Saturday.

As for Brighton, with their place in Europe already confirmed, Roberto De Zerbi has handed a first start to 19-year-old midfielder Yasin Ayari. Pascal Gross continues to captain the side in the absence of Lewis Dunk.

Brighton, meanwhile, made absolutely mathematically sure of sixth place and Europa League qualification by holding newly crowned champions Manchester City to a 1-1 draw at home on Wednesday night (although the Seagulls’ goal difference is so superior to Villa’s that there was never any real doubt). Roberto De Zerbi has steered the visitors to the highest league finish in their history – but he’ll no doubt want his side to cap the campaign on a high note by avenging Villa’s 2-1 win in November’s reverse fixture.

Aston Villa vs Brighton kicks off at 4.30pm BST / 11.30am EDT at Villa Park on Sunday 28th May. Make sure you know how to watch an Aston Villa vs Brighton live stream from anywhere.
