Almost the perfect away performance from Brighton They didn’t give a clear chance and always looked dangerous on the counter White and Webster were particularly good at clearing space by running the ball forward from below

Brighton keeps the ball in the corner when half-time approaches Leeds has a chance to counter but Rafinha’s choice of pass was poor Brighton is on break again and Trossard is crashed in full flight and Ayling is booked

Leeds are under pressure but they are not threatening to turn this into clear chances. Potter will be very pleased with his team’s performance so far.

Brighton had less possession than Leeds but they took good care of it when they were on the ball. This time Webster steps forward and puts the ball in so much space in midfield Leeds looked vulnerable to Brighton players who did

A little better than Leeds, but Alioski’s cross was tame. Sanchez has had no real reasons so far. This time around, Dunk is there to go around a corner

Leeds are really struggling to control both the ball and Brighton – they look stretched every time Brighton regains possession So much space in the pitch for the away team Mac Allister almost pushes a pass to Maupay

Brighton threatens a free kick Cooper’s header bounced in the air to allow Dunk to come back over goal but Burn was unable to point the ball on the track then White drives through Leeds midfield but looks like his Shot is fired

Brighton swings in a corner, but Casilla hits it clear Brighton sustains the attack and Trossard jumps to the right side of the box and his shot is deflected by Ayling and hits the crossbar! Part of Brighton’s football has been really smart so far

Fast feet from Rahinha and he tried to give Rodrigo a through pass but Dunck shuffled over to cut him out. Ben White makes a forward run from midfield to win a throw for Brighton

Almost a quick response from Leeds when Bamford comes over the near post but failed to aim his shot attempt Leeds will still imagine they have the firepower to reverse this

What a wonderful move, picture book football from Potter’s team Mac Allister was just about to shoot on the edge of the box but he played a one-two with Trossard and placed the ball for Maupay to turn the ball into an empty net that is the kind of goal Brighton previously threatened without converting

Maupay faces Casilla as he fights for a cross but the Leeds goalkeeper has held up well with the Brighton striker pestering himself in a characteristic way

Brighton with a strong appeal for a penalty after Maupay went down under Ayling’s challenge Brighton striker ran across the front of the defender but there was very little contact Maupay went looking and got lucky not to be booked for the simulation

Leeds try to get Harrison behind them but Sanchez gets off his line to rally Brighton will fall into the back five if Solly March doesn’t play at left full-back

The playing field on Elland Road looks very heavy, a close-up of the lawn looks more like something from Doncaster Racecourse Bielsa can’t be satisfied with that, it’s an ongoing problem in Leeds

The home team launch their first threatening attack, but Alioski’s low flank along the six-yard line dodges Rodrigo’s right foot

Ben White is playing central midfield, it looks like Bissouma on the bench. He could fall back in a back four, although Dan Burn was pushed to the left in certain phases of the game. Maupay starts in the middle Both sides have early possession of Webster Brings Brighton to attack with a driving run, but Cooper clears Trossard’s flank

Marcelo Bielsa and Graham Potter are looking forward to an afternoon on Elland Road See Leeds v Brighton in the Sky Sports PL picture on Twittercom / QTPf9khiVU

“We all admire him as a player and we respect him and love him as a person,” Bielsa said in his pre-game press conference about White

“He was both an excellent professional and a teammate I hope his career will allow him to grow because he deserves it”

If the Premier League were awarding points for commendable performance, impressive stats, and good aesthetics, Brighton and Leeds would be spot on

As it is, both teams appear to be divided, despite Brighton’s 17th Position in the league is far more dangerous.Depending on your personal philosophy about football and life, Graham Potter and Marcelo Bielsa are either more style than substance and pull the wool over people’s eyes thanks to a reputation for tactical inventions, or are two great coaches, who have improved their players and given their clubs a fresh identity

Despite all the issues with Bielsa and Leeds who haven’t changed their style to tighten defensively, they have won three of their last five league games and are 11 points ahead of the relegation zone, it seems remarkably indecent to say that this is anything but a good place for a newly promoted crew is when we approach halfway

Brighton has been around since Jan. They haven’t won a league game on November 11th when they took all three points from Villa Park and we keep being told that scoring goals is a problem, which means seven teams have scored fewer than them, including Arsenal but only two Teams have collected more

???? We had 18 games and? apart from one and a half games â ???? I would say our level was better than at any point in the last year said Potter

The problem we had is that we didn’t have the points and results that followed “

All team news will be on the way soon Brighton welcome midfielder Yves Bissouma back from suspension while Steven Alzate could emerge after an illness Six players are absent, including new signing Jakub Moder and Danny Welbeck Leeds welcomes Kalvin Phillips back to midfield after suspension
