Leeds Utd v Brighton Matchday Thread

Afternoon All and Welcome to the last Home game thread of the season, a more than massive game for us and one that I'm pretty sure will more or less define our future .
Hopefully the Real Leeds United will turn up for this and play the way we all know they can.

Venue...Elland Road...Date...15th May...Kick Off...1400hrs

Team News
Leeds United
Leeds have Jack Harrison and Raphinha available despite them both being forced off against Chelsea on Wednesday.

Patrick Bamford could return, but Stuart Dallas, Adam Forshaw and Tyler Roberts are injured and Luke Ayling and Daniel James both suspended.

Brighton
Brighton head coach Graham Potter has no new injury concerns.

However, they will again be without Jakub Moder, Enock Mwepu and Jeremy Sarmiento. (read somewhere that Maupay may be out, not sure )

MATCH FACTS
Head-to-head
Leeds have lost eight of the past 10 league meetings, failing to score in eight of those games.
They have not scored in any of their three Premier League matches against Brighton.
The Seagulls have won five of their past seven away league games at Elland Road.

Leeds United
Leeds have lost nine Premier League home games this season, and conceded 37 goals at Elland Road. Only in 1946-47, with 10 defeats, have they lost more, while only in 1959-60 have they conceded more at home in a top-flight campaign - they were relegated at the end of both seasons.
They have lost their final home game in just one of their past 18 top-flight campaigns, with that defeat coming against Spurs in 1995-96.
Leeds are averaging 9.7 shots per league game under Jesse Marsch, compared to 13.7 during Marcelo Bielsa's time in charge this season.
They are the first team in Premier League history to have received 100 cards in a season: 97 yellows and three reds.
The Whites have also committed 440 fouls, more than any other top-flight side this campaign.

Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton have won four of their last six league games, more than they had managed in their previous 25 attempts.
Only the current top three have earned more Premier League away points than Albion's tally of 28 this season.
The nine goals they have scored in their last three league matches is as many as in their previous 14.
They are aiming to win three consecutive league fixtures by at least three goals for the first time since February 1969.
Leandro Trossard has more league goal involvements this season than any other Brighton player, with eight goals and three assists.
Neal Maupay has scored just once in his last 16 league games. He needs one goal to become Brighton's outright leading Premier League goalscorer.

If you lot are owt like me you'll be "brickin It", do I do my usual optimistic prediction or do I get real (for a change) Sod it..................
Brighton have been pretty good on their travels and Elland Road has been a happy hunting ground, hopefully we can put an end to that and nick a 2-1 result with Raph and Cooper getting the Goals 🤞🤞 🙏 (jeeeez I gibber when I'm nervous )

Over to You..................................Predictions etc....................................

Seeing Joffy up front today makes me wonder why we persisted in James up front for so long!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Too true, absolute madness when everyone could see it was not working. Bet DJ would still have been up top today if he wasn't suspended
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This has been one of the biggest misjudgments of the season across two managers in my opinion. Yes he is by no means the finished article but his contributions to goals per minutes on pitch scream that he needs to be involved and used way way more than he has. What he lacks in certain aspects of the game that James was doing up front I am utterly convinced would have been made up by more goal involvements.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
100%. Playing DJ up front rather than on the wing is criminal. As was picking Tyler Roberts all season over Joffy. He has talent!

Can't see DCL playing again this season either. Looks injured and only going to aggravate it playing on.

Us or Burnley

If we had won today, think pressure would have been on Everton even more going into next week. But think they’ll be alright
