Predicted XI

Team News

Brightons’ first-ever European campaign got off on the wrong foot in midweek in a loss against AEK Athens, but the Seagulls can set the record straight this weekend against visiting Bournemouth.

Roberto De Zerbi remains without both Julio Enciso and Jakub Moder for this one, however, and the matchday XI could feature a couple of changes after Thursday’s Europa League clash.

Questions persist surrounding the availability of Lewis Dunk, Evan Ferguson, and James Milner as well, but if both Dunk and Ferguson pass fit, both should be starting from the off. Simon Adingra could start head of Solly March after the English midfielder featured prominently against AEK, while João Pedro could come into the second striker role for this one.
