Brighton racked up a historic 4-0 win over Manchester United, their first positive result against the Red Devils in their last eight meetings in all competitions.
It became a party in the south coast sunshine for the home side, as they put the visitors to the sword with a devastating display. Moises Caicedo got the ball rolling in the 15th minute, before an 11-minute burst of goals from Marc Cucurella, Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard broke United’s spirit. That fourth goal arrived with just an hour played and Ralf Rangnick was likely relieved that his side didn’t ship even more goals in the rest of the game.
It’s been a fantastic few weeks for Brighton who are now ninth in the Premier League table, and with their highest-ever points total in the competition.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Brighton – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.
When is the next Brighton Premier League fixture?
Brighton travel to Elland Road on Sunday to take on Leeds in a 14:00 kick-off. Brighton have an excellent recent record against Leeds, having won eight of the last 10 league meetings, although the previous match between the two this season finished 0-0.
Although the highest Brighton can finish is eighth in the Premier League table, that would still represent a fine season in charge for Graham Potter who seems to be building something special at the Amex Stadium. Brighton could potentially overtake eighth-placed Wolves with a win on Sunday.
What are the odds that Brighton win their next game?
Brighton have won five of their last seven away league games against Leeds, including their last visit to Elland Road, and are 8/5 to extend that record with another three points. A second draw of the season between both sides is 12/5.
Brighton are in outstanding goalscoring form, racking up nine in their last three Premier League games – as many as they had scored in their previous 14 beforehand. Brighton to score exactly three times on Sunday is 13/2 – if they were to do so and win, it could be the first time they win three consecutive league games by at least three goals since 1969.
Leandro Trossard has been a big part of Brighton’s recent goalscoring run. He has four goals and two assists in his last five Premier League games. Trossard is 15/8 to score anytime against Leeds, and 11/2 to get the first goal.

What is the latest Brighton injury and transfer news?
Talented young attacker Jeremy Sarmiento is still recovering from a hamstring injury but might expect a bigger role in the team in the final few weeks of the season when he returns. Zambian midfielder Enock Mwepu has a minor groin complaint but should be available for selection. Jakub Moder’s knee injury might keep him out for the rest of the campaign.
Who are Brighton’s key players?
Graham Potter has no new injury concerns after the win over Manchester United, although Enock Mwepu’s groin problem is expected to keep him out until the final game of the season. Jeremy Sarmiento is ready for more involvement following a hamstring injury, but Jakub Moder will be out for the rest of the season.

What are the Brighton odds to finish in the top half of the Premier League?
Brighton are now 1/3 to finish in the top half of the Premier League, which would be a fitting reward for their fine form in recent weeks. Their final two fixtures don’t look too imposing, although Leeds will be dangerous opponents given their relegation situation. A bottom-half finish for Brighton is now 9/4.
Who is the manager of Brighton?
When Graham Potter took over Brighton in 2019, they were in serious trouble of falling back down to the Championship, but he has managed to steady the ship and keep them in the Premier League on back-to-back occasions. This season, Graham Potter will be hoping to kick on and lead his side to a higher finish, but it will not be an easy task to do so. Despite speculation last summer surrounding his job and if he would leave for another Premier League club, Graham Potter is set to stay and keep Brighton’s top-flight run going.
Where is Brighton’s stadium?
Brighton play their home fixtures at the American Express Stadium, otherwise known as The Amex. With a capacity of 31,800, The Amex is the 22nd largest ground in England.
