Team News: Brighton
Solly March (Knock), Aaron Connolly (Unknown Injury) and Tariq Lamptey (Hamstring Injury) will be missing for Brighton gaffer Graham Potter.
Team News: Leeds United
Thanks to a completely healthy squad available to select from, Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has zero fitness worries whatsoever before this match.
We believe that Leeds United must be fancied to break down this Brighton side, however it realistically won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for Brighton by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Should be an interesting one.
