Chris Wilder’s side who are just 2 points behind Chelsea who are currently sitting at 4th spot on the PremierĀ  League table, will be looking to for nothing less than a win with the hopes that Chelsea and Tottenham draw their match today which would see his side overtake Tottenham and be level with Chelsea with goal difference deciding who will be in the top 4.

Brighton manager Graham Potter took over from Chris Hughton who managed to bring the club back into top-flight competition after topping the Championship League in the 2016/17 season.

Hughton was sacked May 2019 after a torrid spell which saw his side win only 3 of his last 23 games as manager.

Dale Stephens will likely be unavailable for Brighton’s game against Sheffield today. Brighton’s possible line-up for today would be:

Ryan, Schelotto, Duffy, Dunk, Burn, Propper, Mooy, March, Gross, Trossard, Murray, Lamptey, Webster, Jahanbakhsh, Button, Bernardo, Connolly, Alzate.
