Brighton and Hove Albion

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 08:17
In Brief

Last season went all the way to FA Cup semi-finals. Burn and Izquierdo sidelined. March welcomed back.

Looking Back

Brighton played at Wembley last season thanks to FA Cup run that saw team go all the way to semi-finals where narrowly beaten 0:1 by future champions Man City.

League form has been decent during the crazy festive period (W2 D3 L2). Started 2020 with slightly fortunate, but inspiring, 1:1 home draw vs. Chelsea.

Jahanbakhsh one to watch after scoring in back-to-back matches.

Looking Ahead

Coach Potter lost his main left-back Burn for up to 8 weeks on Wednesday, with several others looking tired and fatigued vs. Chelsea too. March passed fit, while Izquierdo back in light training, but won't be rushed.

Both Stephens and Gross benched in last 2 rounds in league, which could now mean they will start. Also 36-year-old Murray hasn’t started Premier League game since September, but this competition could be his chance to lead the line again.

Sheffield Wednesday

In Brief

Woeful form with three straight defeats. Keiren Westwood, Massimo Luongo and Liam Palmer doubtful.

Looking Back

Have had a terrible Christmas with three straight defeats and difficult to understand why.

Went down 1-0 at home to Hull on Wednesday, and offered little going forward.

Looking Ahead

Steven Fletcher may play after returning as a sub on Wednesday and making an impact.

Keiren Westwood, Massimo Luongo and Liam Palmer remain huge doubts though while Fernando Forestieri is still sidelined with injury.

Points of Interest

Have five wins, two draws and six defeats on the road this season.
