Brighton tipped to get back on track when Leeds come to town

Brighton & Hove Albion will be eager to return to winning ways when they welcome struggling Leeds United to the Amex Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Seagulls have slipped to ninth in the table – six points outside the top four – having failed to win any of their previous seven league games.

On the flip side, Leeds find themselves seventeenth – two points clear of the relegation zone and six points behind Brighton.

Brighton made an eye-catching start to the Premier League season, winning four of their opening five games.

Since then, however, they have registered five draws and two losses and haven’t tasted victory for over two months.

That said, it is worth pointing out that Graham Potter’s side have lost just two of their previous 12 home games across all competitions.

Despite enjoying 63% of the ball on Saturday, Brighton conceded a couple of late goals and ended up suffering a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

More often than not, the Seagulls often enjoy the lion’s share of possession. But they often struggle to put the ball in the back of the net.

Meanwhile, Leeds were beaten 2-1 by Tottenham Hotspur last time out – despite taking the lead just before half-time.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side saw 57% possession and racked up 18 shots in North London, yet they conceded twice after the break and couldn’t produce a comeback.

Leeds have only managed to win two of their 12 Premier League outings this term, recording five draws and five losses in the process.

It is also worth noting that only four sides have conceded more goals than Leeds this season. They have conceded at a rate of 1.63 goals per game on their travels.

Head-to-head: Brighton did the double over Leeds last season without conceding a goal. After winning 1-0 at Elland Road, the Seagulls won 2-0 at the Amex.

When you look at the bigger picture, Brighton have won eight of the previous nine meetings between the teams across all competitions.

Team news: Steven Alzate and Danny Welbeck are both injured for Brighton. On a brighter note, Robert Sanchez is set to return between the sticks after serving his suspension.

As for Leeds, they will be without injured trio Robin Koch, Luke Ayling and Patrick Bamford on Saturday. Raphinha, Rodrigo and Jamie Shackleton are also doubts.

Given Brighton’s impressive recent record against Leeds, a home win is on the cards this weekend. Plus, Bielsa’s boys are struggling at the moment.

With that in mind, Forebet predicts that Brighton will score over 1.5 goals on their way to beating Leeds.
