'Buzzing with that' - Brighton fans predict victory at Sheffield United as Neal Maupay and Adam Lallana return

Graham Potter's team selection for tonight's Premier League clash at Sheffield United was largely given the thumbs up by Brighton fans

Neal Maupay scored against Sheffield United last season and returns to the starting XI

Albion are seven points above the drop zone with six matches remaining and a win at already relegated Sheffield United would just about see them safe.

Potter made three changes from their goalless draw at Chelsea in midweek as strikerNeal Maupay, Adam Lallana and Jakub Moder all start in place of Dan Burn, Alexis Mac Allister and the suspended Ben White.

Brighton XI: Sanchez, Webster, Dunk, Veltman, Gross, Lallana, Bissouma, Moder, Trossard, Welbeck, Maupay. Substitutes: Steele, Burn, Propper, Mac Allister, Izquierdo, Jahanbakhsh, Zeqiri, Connolly, Alzate.

NeilGraham10: Wouldn’t change anything here - come on Albion, let’s win this!

@Joebenno: Right, this is the night we can finish with any relegation fear... win tonight, pretty much job done. It is time this team and Potter got over this hoodoo of not being able to beat the teams in the bottom 3... let’s do this! #bhafc

@JournoHaff: Buzzing with that! I’m liking Moder and Gross as wing backs, especially against teams that let us have a lot of the ball

@TogetherBHA: Good XI that, knew it was a case of rotating the squad intelligently with the management on Tuesday. Hopefully Potters vindicated today with a convincing win! #BHAFC

@Brightonfan: Sheffield United away, our biggest game of our season. We can’t afford to underestimate them, they have pride to play for and contracts also. We can’t be complacent tonight. This is our Norwich away last season moment! #bhafc

@Brightonfan: Happy with that, feels weird not seeing Ben White on the team sheet, but took one for the team on Tuesday. #bhafc

@barhamstash: Loving the look of the lineup which can only mean one thing. Tepid 0-0 or stifling defeat... #bhafc

Sheffield United made just one change from their loss to Wolves as Paul Heckingbottom seeks his first point or victory as Blades caretaker boss and end a run of six straight losses.

Sheffield United XI: Ramsdale, Baldock, Egan, Bryan, Bogle, Norwood, Fleck, Osborn, Stevens, McGoldrick, Brewster. Substitutes: Foderingham, Lowe, Ampadu, Jagielka, Gordon, Brunt, Lundstram, Burke, Mousset.
