Albion head coach Graham Potter ahead of today's game at Wolves

Alireza Jahanbakhsh has impressed from the bench in recent weeks and the Iranian gets a rare chance to shine at Wolves today in place of Joel Veltman, who is missing from the squad.

Brighton are 10 points above the relegation places with four to play and victory at Molineux Stadium would guarantee their safety in the Premier League for another season.

Adam Lallana is out once more due to a calf injury while Tariq Lamptey (hamstring), Solly March (knee) and Florin Andone (knee) are the long term absentees.

Brighton: Sanchez, White, Dunk, Webster, Jahanbakhsh, Gross, Bissouma, Burn, Trossard, Maupay, Welbeck. Subs: Connolly, Mac Allister, Moder, Alzate, Izquierdo, Tau, Steele, Propper, Zeqiri.

Here's how Brighton fans reacted to Albion's starting XI on social media

@ryanadsett: Alireza has definitely warranted a start based on recent performances. Nothing to lose now really. Veltman must be injured, but happy with that team. UTA

@NorthStandChat: Today could be your day #BHAFC Ali J fans. Soak it up!

@BhaBowman: AJ has massively deserved his call up, good team let’s see what comes from it. UTA #bhafc

@longie66: Really don’t know what he sees in Ali, we have a lot better players than him.

@GeddesChris: His cameo at Bramall Lane was impressive! He fully deserves a chance show his worth.

@MandisiNgcetane: I wish Percy get a chance today just 10 or 15 min

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has made five changes following his side's 1-1 draw at West Brom.

Ki-Jana Hoever and Maximilian Kilman start in defence and Joao Moutinho returns to midfield, alongside Morgan Gibbs-White.

Adama Traore is on the bench as Daniel Podence returns to the starting XI.

Wolves: Rui Patricio, Hoever, Coady, Kilman, Ait Nouri, Joao Moutinho, Neves, Vitinha, Gibbs-White, Daniel Podence, Silva. Subs: Willian Jose, Ruddy, Nelson Semedo, Saiss, Dendoncker, Traore, Cundle, Richards, Corbeanu.
