Brighton predicted the line-up against Brentford

13

Brighton welcome Brentford to Amex Stadium on Sunday afternoon for another Premier League match.

Leandro Trossard’s winner in the 90th minute for Brighton at the start of the season maintained Graham Potter’s fantastic individual record against Brentford, securing his fourth straight victory when he met the Bees. Potter has a 100% win rate against 26 different clubs in his managerial career, but he has never played against any of these sides as often as he has defeated Brighton’s future opponents.

Here’s the XI that the Seagulls boss can put in to keep his winning race alive.

Robert Sanchez (GK) – One of the division’s most commanding goalkeepers has stopped the highest percentage of crosses in his penalty area in the Premier League this semester (per FBref).

Adam Webster (CB) – Brighton’s record signing is set to return from his latest fitness problem to help fill the gaping gap left by injured club captain Lewis Dunk.

Shane Duffy (CB) – Only two players in Brighton’s squad have fired more shots than the ball magnet from corner kicks – yet Duffy has only netted once, in August.

Dan Burn (CB) – An injury-plagued campaign has limited Brighton’s stand-in captain for their final outing to just six top starts this season – Burn have yet to win from the start.

Tariq Lamptey (RWB) – Shortly tested in an advanced position, Brighton’s nimble full-back can resume his more defensive role.

Enock Mwepu (CM) – “Computer” – a long-lived nickname that has surprised Mwepu himself since a youth coach came up with it when he was just six or seven – is gradually establishing itself on the south coast.

Adam Lallana (CM) – The former Liverpool and Southampton player is a booking shadow for a suspension that has put teammate Yves Bissouma on the side that he can replace on Sunday.

Jakub Moder (CM) – Brighton’s Swiss Army knife from a Polish national team player has been exhibited across the breadth and breadth of Brighton’s ever-changing system.

Marc Cucurella (LWB) – The former Barcelona academy graduate received only seven first-team minutes from the Catalan giants – Brighton have barely gone seven minutes without him since Cucurella made his debut against Brentford in September.

Leandro Trossard (ST) – The only player to start each of Brighton’s Premier League matches this season is not ready to relinquish the ubiquitous status.

Danny Welbeck (ST) – With doubts about shooter Neal Maupay, Welbeck may well return to action for his first appearance since September – the last month that Brighton won a Premier League victory.
