    Brighton & Hove Albion - v - Leeds United *** Matchday Thread***

    5.30pm KO.



    TEAM NEWS

    Brighton head coach Graham Potter is optimistic Enock Mwepu will be available, with the midfielder back in training after a muscle problem.

    Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez has completed a one-game ban but Steven Alzate and Danny Welbeck remain sidelined.

    Leeds' top scorer Raphinha is fit after recovering from illness, while forward Rodrigo is back in contention following a minor foot problem.

    Jamie Shackleton also returns after missing two games with a muscle issue.

    This match comes too soon for Luke Ayling, who is instead expected to play for the under-23s on Monday, while Patrick Bamford and Robin Koch continue to recover from long-term injuries.

    MATCH FACTS

    Head-to-head

    Brighton have won eight of their past nine league games against Leeds, including victories in both meetings last season.

    The Yorkshire club have lost their five most recent matches away to Brighton, failing to score in any of those defeats.

    Their last win away to the Seagulls was a 3-0 victory in League One on 21 November 2009.

    Brighton & Hove Albion

    Brighton won four of their opening five league games this season but are without a victory in their subsequent seven attempts (D5, L2).

    It is the Seagulls' longest winless run in the league since a nine-match streak last season which ended with a 1-0 victory at Leeds on 16 January.

    Brighton have conceded nine goals in their past four fixtures and faced 23 shots on target - compared to five goals conceded and 21 shots on target faced in their opening eight league games.

    Neal Maupay has scored four goals in six league appearances against Leeds, his highest total against an English club.

    Leeds United

    Leeds have dropped 10 points from winning positions in the top flight this season, a total exceeded only by Burnley and Newcastle.

    The Whites are one of two teams - along with Chelsea - who have yet to concede a Premier League goal from outside the penalty area.

    The Yorkshire club could lose back-to-back top-flight matches for the first time in 2021-22.

    They have fielded five ****agers in the Premier League this season, two more than any other club.

    Marcelo Bielsa has won 65% of his Premier League games against English managers (13 of 20), compared to 23% of fixtures versus those from other countries (seven of 30).

    0 - 3.

    Must not lose - 4 points needed from the next 2 games minimum but realistically we need 6 points.

    Just love these relegation battles (Not!)

    Faith people have faith as I have! I look around us and the teams are all crap.
    Newcastle gone Norwich should have killed wolves but didn't Burnley can't win a game and the others above us are falling down the cliff.
    As they say, the ball is in our hands.
