Brighton and Hove Albion remains in the top half despite an eight-match winless run across all competitions, something that Leeds United hopes is in its favor when it visits the Amex Stadium on Saturday (start time 12:30pm ET on NBC and online via NBCSports.com).
All that said about Brighton, the Seagulls haven’t lost consecutive games since March and beat Leeds the last time these two met.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds has been struggling, too, but Kalvin Phillips is back and will hope that a visit to Brighton brings a second win in six across all competitions.

Embrace beautiful football, at least the hope of it, as Potter and Bielsa are purists and will relish the opportunity to go for goal. Raphinha’s possible absence, while slight, is a big concern for Leeds, and whether he plays changes our prediction by a goal. That’s how influential the Brazilian’s been at Elland Road (and away, of course). So we’re saying Brighton 2-1 Leeds, but 2-2 could be in the cards if Raphinha (and/or Rodrigo) are ready to go.
