Why Brighton's current form should worry Leeds United as Whites continue to fight for Premier League survival

By Oscar Haley

Wednesday saw Leeds United slump to another frustrating defeat as Jesse Marsch's side lost 3-0 to Chelsea at Elland Road. And things do not look to be getting easier with Brighton & Hove Albion heading to Yorkshire to take on the Whites this weekend.

Graham Potter's side have earned plenty of plaudits this season for their easy on the eye playing style, with Brighton on track to secure their first ever top 10 Premier League finish. The Seagulls have won four of their last six games, with their only loss coming against Manchester City in a 3-0 defeat at the Etihad.

They embarrassed a haphazard Manchester United side 4-0 last weekend, running rampant at the Amex as they climbed to ninth in the table. In terms of Premier League away form, Brighton sit fifth in the table, having won 28 points from 18 games this season.

Only Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, all who will be in or are challenging for the Champions League, have earned more this season. Given Leeds' relative lack of firepower up front of late - four goals in their last five games - Jesse Marsch will be hoping to rely on striker Patrick Bamford who could return to the fold on Sunday.

Last time the two sides faced off, they played out a 0-0 draw in November which saw Brighton have 20 shots. Lots of talk has been dedicated over the last two seasons about where Brighton would be if they had an out and out goalscorer to finish the high number of chances they create.

That could offer Leeds some hope for Sunday, but given how the recent form of the two sides sits at opposite ends of the spectrum, and Brighton chasing their highest Premier League finish, the weekend clash could be another deflating afternoon at Elland Road if the Seagulls turn on the style.
