THE PREDICTION

Whilst newly promoted Leeds have struggled recently against sides towards the top end of the Premier League table, they have normally picked up positive results against sides struggling towards the bottom of the table. Marcelo Bielsa will be hoping for a similar outcome here against Brighton in what should be an entertaining affair, with both sides looking to get the ball on the floor and play their football. It’s difficult to see the Seagulls picking up anything from this contest though, having not won in their last nine games and coming into this encounter off the back of a physically tough affair away at Man City just three days earlier. A much fresher Leeds should be able to take advantage of this, overwhelming the visitors offensively and recording a relatively comfortable home victory.
