Brighton Super Fan previews Leeds United clash
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Super Fans on upcoming Leeds United games. Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Brighton and Hove Albion, we caught up with Damien Hills @dhillsalbion, a Brighton fan.
Leeds United visit Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday in search of their third Premier League win of the season, and they will fancy their chances.
The AMEX Stadium outfit have not won in their last seven league games, and the Whites can leave with all three points if they make the most of their opportunities.
Leeds have been handed some injury boost with both Raphinha and Rodrigo expected to be available for selection after missing last weekend’s loss at Tottenham Hotspur.
Ahead of the clash, we spoke with Damien Hills @dhillsalbion, a Brighton fan to gauge the mood amongst the opposition supporters.
What have you made of Leeds so far this season?
Honestly, I’ve been surprised about how poor Leeds have been so far.
Who will cause you the biggest issues?
I believe if Kalvin Philips is allowed to be dominant in midfield, he’ll cause issues.
What have you made of your season so far?
I’ve been overjoyed with our start as I tipped us to be in the relegation battle this year.
Who should Leeds watch out for?
I’d say Leandro Trossard and Marc Cucurella.
Is Graham Potter likely to make any big changes to the side?
No, apart from Robert Sanchez, who is back from suspension.
Are there any particular weak links in the Brighton side you fear may get exposed?
Our lack of cutting edge in front of goal could hurt us
Score prediction/what type of game will we see?
I’ll say 2-1 in favour of Brighton with a free flowing game
