Brighton are having a very tough time of matters this season, sitting just one place and a couple of points above the relegation zone - having played more games than both Fulham and West Brom below them, as well as Burnley and Newcastle immediately above them. They did at least win in the FA Cup, albeit via a shoot-out against lowly Newport.
Graham Potter’s team were beaten by Man City earlier this week and haven’t tasted victory in the league since late November, meaning just one win in 90 minutes across the last 18 matches in all competitions.

Leeds remain without summer signing Robin Koch but Diego Llorente might make the matchday squad, while Kalvin Phillips is suspended and Tyler Roberts is injured.
Brighton have Yves Bissouma back from suspension but their injury list is growing. Adam Lallana, Danny Welbeck, Tariq Lamptey, Jose Izquierdo and Aaron Connolly are all out.
LEE: Meslier; Dallas, Ayling, Cooper, Alioski; Klich; Raphina, Rodrigo, Hernandez, Harrison; Bamord.
BRI: Sanchez; Webster, Dunk, Burn; Veltman, White, Bissouma, March; Gross, Tau, Maupay.
More misery on for the Seagulls, unless they can make the most of Phillips’ absence and attack with numbers and a far more clinical edge than they have done for most of this season. Leeds 2-1 Brighton
