Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Leeds on Saturday for their Premier League match as Graham Potter looks for another win for his team. Brighton are currently ninth in the table, having picked up 17 points from their opening 12 matches, while Leeds sit 17th, collecting only 11 points from their first 12 games of the 2021-22 campaign.

Brighton have four wins, five draws and three defeats from 12 matches, which has seen them collect 17 points to sit ninth in the division in the season so far. But a bad run of games has left the Seagulls without a win since September this year, drawing five and losing two of their seven games since the 2-1 win over Leicester City. Graham Potter lost to new manager Steven Gerrard last week in a 2-0 defeat. 

The goals have been an issue for Potter’s team this term, finding the back of the net on just 12 occasions in 12 matches, with only Southampton (11), Tottenham Hotspur (11) and Norwich City (seven) netting fewer.

Leeds suffered their fifth Premier League defeat of the campaign, which has left them in 17th spot in the table. They took the lead against Spurs last week but Conte’s side turned it around to beat them instead. Marcelo Bielsa’s men might find themselves in a relegation battle this time round in the Premier League. 

Leeds have lost eight of their last nine matches against Brighton in all competitions, though, including both Premier League matches during the 2020-21 campaign.
