Graham Potter’s side did the double over Leeds last season.

In January, Neal Maupay’s 17th minute tap-in was the difference as Brighton overcame a flat Leeds side at Elland Road.

On the reverse fixture, Pascal Gross converted a spot-kick to give the Seagulls the lead after Gjanni Alioski felled Danny Wellbeck in the area, and Wellbeck sealed the three points for a dominant Brighton side with a second goal in the closing stages of the game.

The clubs have met 47 times throughout their history and won 18 games apiece.

How are Brighton doing?

The Seagulls are ninth in the Premier League table after 12 matches.

Winless in five, Brighton fell to a 2-0 defeat against Aston Villa last weekend and could only take a point from basement side Newcastle before the international break.
