- The Seagulls drew 3-3 at home to the Bees last season despite registering 15 shots on target - three more than in any other Premier League game in their history.
- Albion are unbeaten in their past five top-flight home games, though each of the last three have ended in draws.
- They have not drawn four consecutive Premier League home matches since November 2017.
- Brighton have won four of their past seven midweek Premier League games, as many victories as in their first 38 (D15, L19).
- Evan Ferguson has scored seven goals in his last eight league appearances at home.
- The Bees have won one of their 11 Premier League games outside of London in 2023 and are winless in their past eight such fixtures (D2, L6).
- Thomas Frank's team have scored at least twice in all five of their Premier League victories this season but are winless in the seven matches when they did not score multiple goals (D2, L5).
- Bryan Mbeumo has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 17 Premier League appearances, scoring nine and assisting five, meaning he has had a hand in half of the 28 goals Brentford have scored in that period.
