Southampton face a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion at Falmer Stadium on Monday afternoon, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 9 of the 20 previous games, with the hosts winning just 4.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2011, with Southampton inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Seagulls in a League One match.
