Brighton will look to continue their impressive start to the new season when they welcome Leeds United to London this Saturday.

The hosts have taken seven points from their opening nine games having recorded wins over Manchester United (2-1) and West Ham (2-0) sandwiched between a goalless draw with Newcastle United.

They come into this tie on the back of a 3-0 win over Forest Green in the second round of the Carabao Cup. The result means that they have kept four clean sheets in their last four competitive games.

With Arsenal not playing till later in the day, Graham Potter’s men have the chance to go top of the league table if they win this game. Should they achieve that feat, it will be the first time they sit on top of the PL table since attaining promotion back in 2017. 

For a team that has conceded just one goal in the league this season (the fewest in the league), a win in this game is possible. Add the fact that they are unbeaten in their last five league home games (W2, D3) then it is easy to tag them as favourites for a win in this game. 

Possible Brighton starting line-up

Robert Sanchez; Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster; Solly March, Adam Lallana, Moises Caicedo, Leandro Trossard; Alexis Mac Allister, Pascal Groß; Danny Welbeck.

Injured: Jakub Moder, Jeremy Sarmiento

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None 

Leeds United 

After over six months of management in Yorkshire, Jesse Marsch finally announced his arrival to Leeds United fans last weekend as he led his side to a remarkable 3-0 win over Chelsea.

The American has begun his full season in charge of Leeds United with a bang, as he has recorded two wins and a draw to leave his side sitting comfortably in the top four places after three games. 

He will travel to Yorkshire this weekend looking to extend his side’s unbeaten run in the top-flight to six games having overseen a win and a draw in their last two games of the previous campaign.

The visitors also have the opportunity to go unbeaten in their opening four matches to a PL season, something they last did back in 2001/02 en route to their most recent European placing.

Possible Leeds United starting line-up

Illan Meslier; Nissen Kristensen, Diego Llorente, Robin Koch, Pascal Struijk; Tyler Adams, Marc Roca; Brenden Aaronson, Rodrigo, Moreno, Jack Harrison; Daniel James.

Injured: Junior Firpo, Luke Ayling, Stuart Dallas, Mateusz Bogusz 

Doubtful: Patrick Bamford

Suspended: None
