Sheffield United will host Brighton in their Premier League encounter today as Sheffield looks for a top 4 spot while Brighton fights off a relegation.
Chris Wilder’s side who are just 2 points behind Chelsea who are currently sitting at 4th spot on the Premier 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.
Sheffield have won their last 2 Premier League encounters and will be the favourites today as they already beat Brighton 1-0 when they last met in the first half of the season.
The possible line-up for Sheffield would be as follows:
Henderson, Eastwood, Moore, Egan, Basham, O’Connell, Robinson, Jagielka, Retsos, Stevens, Fleck, Besic, Baldock, Norwood, Lundstram, Rodwell, Freeman, Berge, Mousset, Sharp, McBurnie, McGoldrick, Zivkovic
Brighton & Hove Albion FC
Brighton are currently 15th on the Premier League table an adjust 3 points away from Relegation. If they win their match today they will be able to extend their gap and push themselves further away from the danger zone.
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.
