Brighton team news

Graham Potter is one of only two managers that has named the same starting XI in all three Premier League matches this season owing to a lack of injuries in his squad. The English tactician made 11 changes as a youthful side breezed past Forest Green Rovers in the EFL Cup in midweek, singling out the Premier League regulars.

Jeremy Sarmiento isn't expected to be sidelined for nearly as long as Jakub Moder - who won't be featuring before the upcoming World Cup - but is also sidelined with a knee injury.

Brighton predicted lineup vs Leeds

Brighton Starting 11: Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; March, Gross, Mac Allister, Caicedo; Lallana; Welbeck
Bench: Steele, Lamptey, Colwill, Mwepu, Van Hecke, Alzate, Undav, Kitmoa, Estupinan

Leeds team news

Aside from long-term absentee Stuart Dallas, Leeds' treatment room could become refreshingly sparse in the coming fortnight. Full backs Junior Firpo and Luke Ayling are said to be "maybe a week or two away" according to Jesse Marsch.

Patrick Bamford is even further along in his recovery as Leeds' medical staff make their assessments "day-to-day".

Leeds predicted lineup vs Brighton

Leeds Starting 11: Meslier; Kristensen, Koch, Llorente, Struijk; Adams, Roca; James, Aaronson, Harrison; Rodrigo
Bench: Klaesson, Forshaw, Summerville, Sinisterra, Gelhardt, Fuhr Hjelde, Cooper, Greenwood, Klich

Brighton vs Leeds score prediction

Having watched Leeds smother Chelsea's ponderous build-up, Brighton are unlikely to fall into the same trap and may take a more direct approach - as they did on the opening weekend against Manchester United - to bypass the press.

As they reprise their strong conclusion to last season - Brighton's only defeat since March was away to Manchester City - Potter's Seagulls may well edge out their upcoming visitors in what could be a fascinating tactical affair.

Prediction: Brighton 2-0 Leeds
