THE TEAM NEWS

BRIGHTON

  • Brighton sit on four points from their opening two matches and they will be keen to build on their good start against Southampton at home.
  • Boss Graham Potter was pleased with the way his team played last week and it could have been better had Trossard not had a goal wiped out.
  • There is a good chance that they name the same starting line-up for this match although summer signing Maupay is pushing for a start.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Ryan; Duffy, Dunk, Burn; Montoya, Propper, Stephens, March; Gross, Trossard; Murray

Unavailable: Schelotto (Injured), Izquierdo (Injured), Bissouma (Injured)

SOUTHAMPTON

  • It has been a tough start for Southampton having lost their opening two games and they are desperate to get their first points on the board.
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl will consider some changes after some poor mistakes against Liverpool and Stephens will be keen to return at the back.
  • Danny Ings scored and had another great chance after coming off the bench last week and he could lead the attack ahead of Che Adams here.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gunn; Bednarek, Stephens, Vestergaard; Valery, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Bertrand; Ward-Prowse, Redmond; Ings

THE PREDICTION

Contrasting starts to the season for these two teams but this promises to be a hard-fought South Coast derby as has been the case in recent seasons. Maintaining discipline will be key to success here but there is every chance this will be a lively and open game with goals at both ends of the pitch.
