Brighton transfer news: Seagulls enter race for Bundesliga striker, Euro boss responds to Albion raid rumours

Brighton will be looking for a vast improvement on their last result when they come up against Leeds United on Saturday afternoon.

The Seagulls were beaten 1-0 by bottom club Sheffield United last Saturday, but did pick up all three points when they travelled to Elland Road earlier in the year.

For much of the intervening period, they have been embroiled in a relegation battle, but manager Graham Potter is still optimistic that the unpredictable nature of the Premier League could work in his side’s favour as they bid to secure their safety once and for all.

Speaking in a press conference, he said: “We’ve seen from our record over this season and last that we’re capable of picking up points against any team.

“At the same time, you are capable of losing to any team and that’s the challenge of the toughest league in the world.

“I wouldn’t say it (the fixtures) concerns me because all the games in the Premier League are tough, there’s no easy ones.”

Reflecting on Albion’s previous win at Elland Road, he added: "I’m expecting similar, a tough match, a high-tempo game and we have to be really good to get the points.

“Leeds have got threats all over the pitch. They can attack you through the sides and through the middle.

“The intensity they play at is well documented. They defend and attack with aggression and if you don’t match that it’s going to be a tough afternoon.”
