The supercomputer predicts how the first six Premier League matches will turn out with Brighton, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Fulham and Man United.

Brighton and Hove Albion hope to continue their good start to the Premier League season under Roberto de Zerbi

Brighton boss Tony Bloom described the 43-year-old Italian as a “natural fit” after former coach Graham Potter left for Chelsea.

Albion is currently flying high in fourth after a good start to the new season and De Zerbe admits the team is in a good position and isn’t planning to make big changes as he gets to know their players.

Albion is next in play after the international break in Liverpool on 1 October, and De Zerbe’s first match at the AMEX Stadium will take place on 8 October against Tottenham.

It’s a tough October for the new man in charge as they also face Chelsea Potter and Manchester City.

“Brighton really wanted me as a coach, and their style of play is very similar to my idea of ​​football,” said the 43-year-old.

“I think the right vision is to always try to improve. Of course we finished last season in ninth place so our vision is to stay in the top 10 in the league.

“For me this is a huge challenge. I am coming to work in the most important league in the world.

“I came here very modestly because I know where I came to work. But of course I came here with my character, to do what I know to do, and to bring here my experiences of what I know to do.”
