Leeds United vs Brighton Prediction & Match Preview

Leeds United vs Brighton & Hove Albion
England Premier League
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Elland Road, Leeds.


Leeds United will be looking to regain their spot in top ten when they welcome Brighton at their Elland Road on Matchday 19.

The first half of the season has been a mixed bag for the newcomers, but, one thing is for sure, Marcelo Bielsa’s men will stick to their attacking style of play.

The likes of Berardi, Forshaw, and Koch are sidelined with injuries, while Llorente should recover in time to face Brighton.

The Seagulls, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Man City.

Brighton are eyeing their first league win since November 21, 2020, and seeing that Leeds defeated both Newcastle and Burnley in the previous two home games, we predict that Graham Potter’s charges are going to return home empty-handed.

Andone, Connolly, Izquierdo, Lamptey, and Wellbeck remain in the recovery room, while trio Alzate – Jahanbakhsh – Lallana is rated doubtful for the game.

Team News:

Kalvin Phillips is suspended for this match after accumulating five yellow cards, explaining why he started against Crawley in the cup last weekend.

Robin Koch, Gaetano Berardi, Tyler Roberts and Adam Forshaw are also out of Saturday's game, but Diego Llorente may be back involved.

Striker Patrick Bamford has gone two without a goal, though he still has a more-than-respectable 10 in 17 Premier League appearances this term.

As for Brighton, Graham Potter is boosted by the return of influential midfielder Yves Bissouma after serving a one-match ban.

Danny Welbeck, Tariq Lamptey and Adam Lallana will play no part, but there is a chance that Steven Alzate and Alireza Jahanbakhsh could return to the squad.

Neal Maupay is expected to lead the line and will be looking to add to a return of three goals in four league matches against Leeds.
