Brighton will look to return to winning ways after their 3-2 defeat to Chelsea when they play host to Brentford on Wednesday in the Premier League.

The Seagulls were edged out by the Blues in an incident-packed encounter at Stamford Bridge, while Brentford defeated Luton 3-1 to snap their two-game losing streak.

Team news

Lewis Dunk is once again missing from Brighton's squad for this game

Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi is still without midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud and defender Lewis Dunk through suspension.

Solly March may be able to prove his fitness and return to the bench, while Tariq Lamptey, Ansu Fati, Adam Webster, Pervis Estupinian, Danny Welbeck and Julio Encisco are all still sidelined through injury.

Brentford coach Thomas Frank will be unable to call upon Christian Norgaard due to suspension, while fellow midfielder Mathias Jensen is a doubt due to a groin problem.

Nathan Collins and Aaron Hickey are not expected to return until the New Year, while the game should come too soon for Joshua Da Silva.

The stats

Brighton have not lost any of their previous five matches at home across all competiton, although they have drawn three of those games.

In the Premier League, they have only lost one of their last nine matches, a run that dates back to the end of last season.

Defensively, the Seagulls have been vulnerable at home, keeping just one clean sheet all season in a 2-0 success over Ajax.

After failing to score in defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal, Brentford put three past Luton last time out to return to winning ways.

The Bees have won just twice in six away league games this term, but they have scored in four of those contests.


Brighton have been an exciting team to watch this season, scoring 30 goals and conceding 26 times in their 14 league outings.

Attacking football has been the focus for De Zerbi's side and while this has helped them to progress in the Europa League, they have been fragile at the back.

The Seagulls have conceded in every top-flight fixture this term and they last kept a clean sheet in the league in May when beating Arsenal 3-0 at the Emirates.

Brentford have shown plenty of attacking prowess and they have failed to score in just three of their 14 Premier League assignments this season.

This promises to be an entertaining affair and it could be a smart play to back a share of the spoils with plenty of goals.
