Leeds host relegation-threatened Brighton on Saturday in a crunch Premier League fixture at Elland Road

Leeds v Brighton

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa will be expecting a response from his players when they face Brighton on Saturday after the Whites’ FA Cup humiliation to Crawley last weekend.

Leeds were dumped out of the competition by the League Two club and now only have their Premier League fixtures to focus on for the rest of the season.

Bielsa’s men welcome Brighton to West Yorkshire with the Seagulls themselves in need of a victory to ease concerns of the drop. 

Brighton sit just above the relegation zone following a reasonable run of results over the Christmas period.

However, their defensive lapses have become an issue in recent weeks and that means we’re likely to see goals at Elland Road, considering how Leeds also tend to neglect duties at the back.

Leeds v Brighton team news

Leeds: Kalvin Phillips is suspended for this tie, so Pascal Struijk could sit in front of the defence again. Centre-back Robin Koch is still out with a knee injury but Diego Llorente is set to be fast-tracked back into the first team and could feature here.

Question marks linger of Tyler Roberts’ inclusion, with Bielsa expected to bring Patrick Bamford back into the starting XI, as Rodrigo drops into midfield.

Brighton: Graham Potter’s sprawling injury list isn’t clearing up any time soon. Aaron Connolly, Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone, Tariq Lamptey, Adam Lallana and Danny Welbeck are all definitively out of this weekend.

Steven Alzate and Alireza Jahanbakhsh are close to returns, while Yves Bissouma is back from a ban.

Our prediction: Leeds v Brighton

Leeds have blown hot and cold this season and are susceptible to a defensive meltdown at times. Yet this should be a game they win by a goal or two.

Brighton’s own defensive frailties mean they will have to try and match Leeds going forward if they are to claim anything from this trip to West Yorkshire.

And Bielsa will hope that by rolling the dice enough times with waves of attack that his men simply outscore the Seagulls here.

Our prediction: Leeds 4-2 Brighton
