Dean Smith’s recovered from defeats against Leeds and Southampton with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Arsenal prior to the international break, and currently sit sixth in the table.
New signings Ollie Watkins, Matty Cash and Emiliano Martinez have all flourished individually, with Villa winning five of their seven matches so far, while Jack Grealish continues to produce match-winning performances.
Meanwhile, despite Brighton often playing impressive football, their performances are yet to yield the required number of points. The Seagulls have taken just six in total from their eight games, leaving them in 16th with the looming threat of a relegation battle.
Here is everything you need to know:
When is it and what time is kick-off?
The match will begin at 3pm on Saturday 21 November at Villa Park.
How can I watch it?
The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport, with the usual 3pm blackout suspended from Saturday until next year.
Aston Villa: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Luiz, McGinn; Trezeguet, Barkley, Grealish; Watkins
Brighton: Ryan; White, Webster, Dunk; Lamptey, Bissouma, Gross, March; Lallana, Welbeck; Maupay
Aston Villa have enjoyed a brilliant start to the season and should their momentum continue after the international break, they should have enough firepower to break down Brighton, who have shown great flourishes themselves but have often struggled to find the cutting edge to take three points.
