This is a must-win match for Leeds if they are to get out of the relegation zone. With two matches to play they are in the bottom three on goal difference, but Burnley have a game in hand. Three points here will go along way to helping them remain safe. Brighton on the other hand are in no danger and can play freely, something that will be of concern for the hosts.

Head-to-Head


Leeds and Brighton have won 18 matches each and drawn 12 in 48 meetings. 

Leeds Form


Leeds fell to a third consecutive defeat after a 3-0 home loss against Chelsea on Wednesday. The Whites previously lost at Arsenal (2-1) and at home against Man City (4-0).

Leeds were 1-0 down after four minutes against Chelsea and Dan James was sent off in the first half. They struggled to reply with 0.6 expected goals and then conceded two more in the second period.

Jesse Marsch’s side have lost six of their last eight at Elland Road. Poor form leaves them in the relegation zone on goal difference, having played a game more than Burnley in 17th. 

Leeds Team News


Midfielder Jack Harrison and forward Raphinha are doubtful.

Winger Dan James and defender Luke Ayling are suspended.

Strikers Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts are out.

Midfielder Adam Forshaw and defender Stuart Dallas are also unavailable. 

Brighton Form


Brighton thrashed Man United 4-0 last time out for their fourth win in six. The Seagulls also recorded recent away wins at Wolves (3-0), Arsenal (2-1) and Tottenham (1-0) during this run.

Brighton dominated United with 2.74 expected goals. Moisés Caicedo struck early before Marc Cucurella, Leandro Trossard and Pascal Gross scored after half time. 

The upturn in form has seen Graham Potter’s side move to ninth in the Premier League. 

Brighton Team News
