Brighton will be looking at this fixture as a fantastic opportunity to get their first Premier League victory under their belt, and will do everything in their power to do so.

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

Chris Hughton was ultimately left feeling as if their draw against Watford last time out was a real missed opportunity, especially after Miguel Britos was sent off for a reckless lunge in just the 24th minute of the game. Despite the man advantage, Brighton were unable to find the breakthrough as their best efforts from Anthony Knockaert and Tomer Hemed struck the woodwork. It appeared that scoring goals would ultimately be the main struggle of the organised Seagulls and, judging by the fact they are yet to net in any of their opening three Premier League games, that may well prove to be the case. Even against League Two side Barnet they struggled to pose a significant threat, going through 1-0 in the League Cup, with youngster James Tilley netting their only goal of the campaign so far. However, Brighton boasted an impressive home record in the Championship last season, winning seventeen of their twenty-three games at the Amex, giving them the best home points tally in the division last term. Only Manchester City have visited Brighton in the Premier League so far this season, leaving them as somewhat of an unknown quantity at home in this division.

Biram Kayal (broken leg) is ruled out for Brighton, while Izzy Brown (hamstring) is doubtful. Bruno (back) and Glenn Murray (ankle) will hope to shake off knocks to feature, while Sam Baldock (calf) could return.

West Bromwich Albion Preview

Tony Pulis will still be wondering how his side haven’t taken maximum points from their opening three games as a defensive mix up cost them two points at home to Stoke a fortnight ago. The Baggies looked on course to win their third successive Premier League game by a 1-0 scoreline when Jay Rodriguez’s sharp movement inside the box enabled him to head home Allan Nyom’s cross at the far post. Usually so assured and decisive in defence, it was a real shock to see the nature of Stoke’s equaliser, as Ben Foster and Ahmed Hegazi failed to clear their lines, allowing Peter Crouch to nod into the empty net and, with it, take away the Baggies’ 100% start to the new season. Had it not been for that error, West Brom would currently find themselves level on points with Manchester United at the top of the table, although they can hardly complain too profoundly over their points return from the first three games. Winning at Burnley in their previous away game ended a run of no wins in nine away from home for the Baggies as they now look to win back-to-back away matches for the first time since September 2015.

New signing Grzegorz Krychowiak could make his West Brom debut this weekend. Gareth McAuley (thigh) will be assessed, but Hal Robson-Kanu is still suspended following his red card at Burnley.
