Leeds v Brighton Prediction

Leeds United will be giving it one last swing in their attempt to stay up in the Premier League for next season as if they lose here they will have one foot in the Championship as Brighton & Hove Albion aim for the top half.

Leeds have six points left to play for in the league, but with them trailing Burnley by goal difference, if the Clarets win away to Tottenham Hotspur as the Seagulls lose, the club will have to win their last game and overturn more than a 19+ goal difference. Whilst that's a near-impossible feat, Burnley are also not favoured to beat Spurs, so there is a great chance for Leeds to get the upper hand here.

There is, however, very little hope for Jesse Marsch's men right now. Since sacking Marcelo Bielsa, the club have only got worse and they have rocketed into the drop zone after conceding nine goals in three games and scoring one as they lost to Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea. They are back to playing those not competing for the top three, however, and with Brighton up here and then an away trip to Brentford, the Whites should still have some confidence.

Leeds need to recover the form they showed back in April now, a time where they beat Norwich City, edged past Wolverhampton Wanderers, draw with Southampton, and then hammer Watford 3-0. They also drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace, and it looked as if they were set to fight right until the final bell.

Brighton, on the other hand, are coming off the back off arguably their greatest ever Premier League day as they hammered Manchester United 4-0 in a ruthless and clinical display from Potter's side. It has now moved Brighton up into ninth, and although they cannot get into the Europa Conference League spot, Wolves are still out of the win column and Brighton will be eyeing an eighth-placed finish.

Leeds team news

Leeds are not helped on the injury front in their fight to stay up in the Premier League. Tyler Roberts is "feeling good" according to Jesse Marsch, but he will not play this season and is bound to get a good runout during preseason. Raphina is facing a late fitness test, and even if he is 70%, there might be no choice for Marsch to play him. Patrick Bamford is so close to returning but he's going to struggle to get fit for this one. Adam Forshaw is out, alongside Crysencio Summerville, and the club will be sweating on the fitness of Jack Harrison with Daniel James suspended. Luke Ayling is suspended too.

Brighton team news

Jeremy Sarmiento is unlikely to play here but he could return for the next game. Jakub Moder is unfortuenly out for some time and will need focus on getting fit for the next season, Enock Mweup is out for the season as well after his excellent form. There are no other suspensions or injuries to deal with as Graham Potter can field some youngsters with little to play for.
