PREDICTION
Carlos Carvalhal’s appointment as Swansea manager until the end of the season is looking to be a shrewd one as the South Wales outfit start this weekend outside of the bottom three, but with only one point separating them and the relegation zone the Swans cannot stop to admire their recent hard work.

Saturday sees them make the trip to East Sussex to face a Brighton side who are just doing enough to keep their heads above water, as they lie in 14th while just a point clear of their upcoming opponents. Chris Hughton’s men have been stronger at home but with the form that Swansea are in as of late, do not be surprised if this one ends up with honours even.

MEMORABLE MEETING
There has been only one previous Premier League meeting between the two sides, one that took place back in November of last year. The Liberty Stadium was the setting, but it was to be the travelling Brighton side that returned with all three points thanks to Glenn Murray who scored the only goal of the game on 29 minutes.
