Leeds United host Brighton and Hove Albion at 3pm in the Premier League with the visitors desperate for points to move away from the relegation zone.

While Marcelo Bielsa’s side will look to consolidate their position in mid-table as they eye a place in the top-half of the league. Leeds have lost their last two games, including a 3-0 upset against Crawley Town in the FA Cup, while the Seagulls showed promising signs against Manchester City, but ultimately failed to pick up a point after Phil Foden’s strike.

Pep Guardiola has lauded Brighton’s performances, but Graham Potter knows they need to turn those into points if they are to avoid the drop: “We have had 18 games and - apart from one and a half games - our performance level has been, I would say, better than at any point last year. The problem we have had is that we haven't had the points and the results that follow that. You can talk about performance, performance, performance but at the end we know we have to get results. We know we have to get points. We have to believe we are on the right path. We are fighting for each other, which is clear, and we keep moving forward.”

Be sure to check out live goal and score updates from Elland Road, including reaction and analysis, plus follow the end of Wolves vs West Brom, a game that will be of great interest to Brighton in the battle to survive in the Premier League:
