and live on Freeview channel 276
The Whites currently sit third in the top flight table, having taken seven points from their first three matches.
For their part, Brighton have also started brightly, having also picked up seven points in their first three fixtures.
Last weekend saw Graham Potter’s men put West Ham to the sword in a comfortable 2-0 away win to leave Albion fifth in the table, separated from Leeds by goal difference alone.
And as two of the top flight’s in-form sides ready themselves for a mouth-watering clash at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, Sutton is predicting a tight affair on the south coast.
Speaking to BBC Sport, he said: “Leeds have really surprised me, in a good way. Their fans are quick in letting me know I haven’t predicted a win for them, yet!
“Their new signings have bedded in - Brenden Aaronson is getting a lot of attention, while midfielders Marc Roca and Tyler Adams have shown they are decent pieces of business as well.
“These sides drew both fixtures last season and Brighton do not concede many, but I fancy them to score. However, I also think Leeds will score as well, so we will go for 1-1.”
Sutton has predicted a 1-1 draw between Leeds and Brighton.
