Picking the Best Potential Brighton Lineup to Face Huddersfield in the Premier League on Saturday

Brighton will be looking to secure a second away victory of the season on Saturday when they make the trip to West Yorkshire to face Huddersfield Town.


The Seagulls looked set to clinch a fourth home win of the season last week against a Leicester City side who had been reduced to ten men following Glenn Murray's early strike. 


However, the Foxes piled the pressure on Brighton in the second half with substitute Jamie Vardy equalising from the penalty spot, ensuring that both sides would share the spoils at the Amex.


Despite the disappointment of conceding a late goal against Leicester, Chris Hughton is not expected to make too many alterations to his team.


Here is how the Albion could look against Huddersfield on Saturday.

1. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Mathew Ryan (GK) - One of Brighton's most impressive players this season, Ryan has kept three clean sheets in his last six games and is guaranteed to start for the Albion against Huddersfield.


Bruno (RB) - Club captain Bruno has been a reliable defender for his club since joining in 2012 and is expected to start over fellow Spaniard Martin Montoya.


Shane Duffy (CB) - Ireland international Duffy has started every game the Seagulls this year, forming a solid partnership with Lewis Dunk at the back, and is likely to keep his place on Saturday.


Lewis Dunk (CB) - A product of the club's youth academy, Dunk has risen through the ranks since making his debut in 2010 and is now an integral part of Chris Hughton's squad, missing just one game this season.


Gaetan Bong (LB) - Despite missing out last week to fellow full back Bernardo, Bong should make a return to the starting 11, having featured 11 times this season for the Albion.

2. Midfielders

Anthony Knockaert (RM) - A tricky winger who can operate on either side of the field, Knockaert has re-established himself as a starter for Brighton this year after a tough campaign last term. The 27-year-old has scored 24 goals for the club since moving from Standard Liege in 2016 and will be looking to add to his tally at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.


Davy Propper (CM) - After returning from injury last week against Leicester, Propper is expected to make his tenth league start against Huddersfield. A solid, if not spectacular midfielder, the 27-year-old brings much needed experience to Chris Hughton's midfield having played for PSV Eindhoven and Vitesse Arnhem during his time in the Eredivisie.


Beram Kayal (CM) - A defensive midfielder who also has an eye for a pass, Kayal has settled in well at Brighton since moving from Celtic in 2015. The Israel international has played nine teams already this season but is at risk of a one-game suspension if he picks up a yellow card at the weekend.


Jose Izquierdo (RM) - A revelation last season for Brighton, Izquierdo has had a slow start to this year's campaign following his World Cup exploits with Colombia in the summer. Known for his incredible speed and technical dribbling, Izquierdo's presence could prove vital for Brighton as they look to improve their away form.


Pascal Gross (CAM) - Arguably Brighton's best all-round midfielder, Gross made his first appearance in over a month for the Seagulls against Leicester and should feature against Huddersfield. Since moving to the south coast from Ingolstadt in 2017, the German has scored eight goals and has become the club's designated set piece taker.

3. Forward

Glenn Murray (ST) - The top scoring Englishman in the Premier League this season, Murray has shown no signs of slowing down for the Seagulls. A fantastic goal-scorer, the 35-year-old  will be looking to add to his tally of seven on Saturday and will be crucial to Brighton's hopes if they are to beat Huddersfield.
