Brighton will hope to keep their hot start to the season going when they square up with Leicester City on Sunday.

Three wins from four games is an outstanding return from Graham Potter's men, who picked up a 1-0 win over Brentford last time out to keep themselves three points ahead of Sunday's opponents.

Here's how Potter could set up for this one.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Robert Sanchez (GK) - The undisputed star in Brighton's goal, Sanchez has enjoyed an impressive start to the season.

Dan Burn (CB) - With Adam Webster out until after the international break, Burn could slot back into the team after recovering from his own injury.

Shane Duffy (CB) - Duffy has been excellent after returning from his loan spell with Celtic. He's played every minute so far and will expect to keep that spot here.

Lewis Dunk (CB) - Another of those to have played every minute, Dunk is among the first names on the team sheet.

2. Midfielders

Joel Veltman (RM) - Pushed into a more advanced role, Veltman has put in a good shift at wing-back.

Adam Lallana (CM) - Lallana didn't have his best outing against Brentford but still has the class needed to make an impact here.

Yves Bissouma (CM) - The self-proclaimed 'best midfielder in the league', Bissouma has been sensational thus far and is adding to his price tag with each passing second.

Marc Cucurella (LM) - One of the most exciting signings of the summer, Cucurella is starting to find his groove in England.

3. Forwards

Leandro Trossard (RW) - The saviour of the Brentford game, Trossard will keep his spot in the starting lineup here.

Neal Maupay (ST) - After scoring in the first two games, Maupay is without a goal in his last two appearances.

Danny Welbeck (LW) - Having recovered from his hamstring injury, Welbeck might be ready to play his first 90 minutes of the season.
