The Seagulls head into the game with six points from their opening three matches, and will be keen to rack up as many points as possible this month ahead of a brutal October which will see them take on the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool in quick succession.

Meanwhile, Brighton youngster Antef Tsoungui has been discussing making a strong professional debut for the club in their 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Cardiff City, and said: “I didn’t really think about what we had achieved initially after the game, but once I saw all the messages flashing up saying ‘a really young team has beaten Cardiff away’, I slowly realised what we had actually done.

“We didn’t concede against a team that had scored eight goals in their previous four games, they were all headers as well and I am not the tallest! So to be able to deal with that pressure was pleasing.

“I learned more in that game than I have in any other 90 minutes I have played in my career so far. I didn’t feel tired at the end of the game because of the adrenaline flowing through my body. It was only the next day that I was like ‘wow’, watching back the highlights and seeing how well we did."

He added: “It was also the next day when I have never felt as sore and mentally drained. It carried onto our next Premier League 2 game five days later. Every step I took I could feel a dead leg and bruises everywhere.

“To have Tsoungui on the back of a shirt though for a professional game was a dream come true. My family were very proud, they’ve supported me all the way through.”

Take a look at the latest news round-up from the Premier League, as the build-up to the weekend's action continues:
