Brighton and Hove Albion take on newly promoted Brentford at the west London club’s new stadium this afternoon (Saturday 9 September).
Danny Welbeck and new signing Marc “Cucu” Cucurella start for Brighton in the mint green away strip.
Head coach Graham Potter’s selection has been constrained with a couple of players self-isolating under the coronavirus rules.
Under Thomas Frank, Brentford play a quick passing game and – to the envy of some Albion fans – have a proven goal scorer in Ivan Toney.
After beating Arsenal in their opening game, the Bees have drawn with Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.
The Seagulls have enjoyed their best top-flight start, with two wins – away to Burnley and at home to Watford – before losing to Rafael Benitez’s Everton at the Amex. Brentford are unbeaten.
The pre-match odds favoured a draw, with the bookies leaning more towards Brentford snatching a win than Brighton. Let’s hope the Albion upset the odds.
