Brighton & Hove Albion vs Leeds UnitedBelarusian Premier League, KO: 15:00 Aug 27, 2022, Amex Stadium
Brighton & Hove Albion host Leeds United in a Premier League fixture with both teams looking to build on promising starts to the new season.
After securing their first ever top 10 finish last season, Brighton & Hove Albion appear to be pushing to take things a notch higher. They are unbeaten after three matches and have already won at Old Trafford and the London Stadium this season.
Brighton claimed a 2-0 victory at West Ham United in their previous Premier League fixture. They were largely untroubled for much of the contest with goals in each half from Alexis MacAllister and Leandro Trossard sealing the win.
Graham Potter’s men warmed up for the visit of Leeds United with another victory as they triumphed 3-0 victory over Lower League side Forest Green Rovers in the Carabao Cup. The one blemish in an otherwise fine start to the season is that they are yet to win at home this season having played out a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United in their only fixture at the Amex Stadium so far.
Jesse Marsch could not have wished for a better start to his first full season as manger of Leeds United. Having barely survived relegation last season, they have looked a completely different side and are unbeaten after three matches.
Leeds United earned an impressive 3-0 victory over Chelsea in their previous Premier League fixture. They were all over the blues from the first blast of the whistle with goals from Brendan Aaronson, Rodrigo and Jack Harrison sealing the win.
Goals are clearly not a problem for Leeds United this season as they travel to Brighton off the back of a 3-1 victory over Barnsley in a midweek Carabao Cup fixture. However, they still look slightly suspect at the back and let a two goal lead to slip in a 2-2 draw with Southampton in their only away fixture so far this season.

Brighton are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 10/11 by William Hill. A victory for Leeds United is valued at 16/5 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 14/5 by bet365.
Recent head to head

Players to watch
