EPL: Leeds United vs Brighton




With only two matches left to try to complete the goal of staying in the Premier League, Leeds will have a very important welcome to Brighton at Elland Road. Despite being in poor form, being pushed into a situation has nothing to lose. Believe that coach Jesse Marsch’s team will wake up in time.

Although it is at a time when it is necessary to win to escape the relegation group, however, Leeds is too unlucky to face a schedule that is too difficult. In the last round, Leeds lost 0-3 when they welcomed Chelsea at home. Before that, they were also empty-handed when facing Arsenal and Man City. Confronting all 3 teams that are in the top 4, the scenario of Arsenal consecutive defeats has been predicted. It turns out that coach Jesse Marsch and his team have not won the last 4 matches in a row (draw 1, lose 3).

Leeds entered this match with 18th place on the rankings with 34 points. They won 8, drew 10 and lost 18 through 36 matches played in the Premier League this season. Conceding up to 9 goals in the last 3 matches has contributed to Leeds conceding a total of 77 goals throughout this season, only 1 goal less than Norwich. That’s bad, but Leeds is in a dead end situation in the relegation battle. Therefore, they will put all their energy in the last two matches and most likely make a difference against Brighton

The away team Brighton can completely play leisurely in the last 2 rounds and look forward to the next season. With a record of 11 wins, 14 draws and also 11 defeats. Currently, Brighton is in 9th place in the rankings with 47 points. They cannot compete for a ticket to the European Cup, nor get a score that is too safe compared to the lower group. Despite the end of the goal, “Seagull” still competed with determination in recent times. Even coach Graham Potter’s team won both previous matches.

Accordingly, Brighton has just had an unbelievable match when he smashed Man Utd to 4 goals without removing it. Statistics show that, Brighton has won 4/6 recent rounds and lost only 1 of them. Even Brighton has won the last 3/4 matches away, against Arsenal, Tottenham and Wolves. Moreover, Brighton has not conceded a goal against Leeds in the Premier League since the home team returned to the tournament in 2020. The theory is that, however, kicking a team in need of points. Relegation has never been an easy challenge for any name.
