Leeds United is in 12th place in Premier League with 23 points after 17 matches. We can consider the team’s last 5 games as successful because the team of Bielsa won 3 of them. They scored 5 goals and beat Newcastle United 5:2. After that, however, they lost the derby against Man. United 6:2.
Their next clash was a minimal victory 1:0 against Burnley and after that another show when Leeds scored away from home 5 goals and kept a clean sheet against West Brom. Their last clash in Premier League was in London against Tottenham and the team of Jose Mourinho won easily 3:0. With the same result, the club lost against Crawley Town and was eliminated from FA Cup.
Brighton is in 17th place with 14 points after 18 games in Premier League. The results of the team are a disaster as they are without a victory in their last 9 matches. However, they lost only two of their last 6 games and the teams that beat them were Arsenal 0:1, and in their last clash on Wednesday Manchester City also with only one goal – 1:0.
The other 4 results were draws against Fulham, Sheffield, West Ham, and Wolverhampton when the club came back after losing 1:3 in the first half. The most impressive results so far for Brighton are their victory against Aston Villa away from home and draw against Liverpool.
Leeds is the favorite in the upcoming game. After the last two disappointing results, I think that the team of Marcelo Bielsa will be focused and will do everything to win at home against an opponent below them in the standings.
Brighton scored only in one of their last 4 visits in the Premier League and I think that they will not be able to avoid losing against Leeds. Most accurate soccer predictions: Leeds to win
