Brighton is coming into this match from a 1-0 win against Man United, an important 1-0 win for them. It was Alexis Mac Alister’s late penalty who helped Brighton to seal the win of that match.

In fact, they are one of the teams that have improved so much this season, being one of the best teams this season. Brighton have the potential to qualify for the European football next season. This is because they were able to establish themselves this season in the Premier League. However, for them to reach their goal, they need to win in this match to improve their chances.

Evan Ferguson is still a major doubt in this match, as Brighton is still unwilling to take a risk, since they have remaining games left. Pascal Gross on the other hand may need to face a late fitness test before playing in this match. Due to a hamstring injury, Joel Veltman will be on the sidelines with Adam Lallana, Tariq Lamptey, and Jeremy Sarmiento.
