Although they both depend on themselves at the moment, Brighton is the one that has it best. But you can’t relax. In the first game (matchday 2), the match was settled with a 0-0 draw.

Fierce fight for Europe

Along with Manchester City, they are the least thrashed teams in the competition, having received 31 goals each. Although in recent days they have also been especially successful in attack, beating Tottenham, West Ham and Everton.

It is in their hands, but they arrive with a bad taste in their mouths after having added only one point in the two previous meetings. The defeat against Arsenal and the draw against Leeds have complicated an objective that seemed practically achieved.
