A Brighton side who already seem to be on the beach host relegation-threatened Norwich on Saturday, as the Premier League resumes following the international break.

Prior to the pause, both of these sides had been in wretched form, each losing their previous six games. The Seagulls most recently lost 2-0 to Tottenham, while Norwich stumbled to a damaging 2-1 defeat against fellow strugglers Leeds all the way back on 13 March.

At least one of the teams is guaranteed to break their losing streak this weekend, and below is everything you need to know about the fixture...

Brighton team news

Brighton will be without Adam Lallana and Adam Webster, who have stepped up their recoveries over the break but are not quite ready to feature this weekend.

In addition, Graham Potter confirmed that Moises Caicedo will be sidelined with illness. It's better news for Tariq Lamptey and Alexis Mac Allister, who will both shake off issues picked up on international duty to make the squad.


Norwich team news

Irish pair Adam Idah and Andrew Omobamidele remain unavailable to Dean Smith, with the former not expected to feature again this season.

Starting full-backs Brandon Williams and Max Aarons are also out, as is Ozan Kabak after he picked up an injury on international duty with Turkey. There will also be a late decision made on Josh Sargent who rolled his ankle recently.

In better news, Christoph Zimmermann and Grant Hanley will return after sitting out of the Leeds defeat.


Brighton vs Norwich score prediction

Two horrifically out-of-form sides square off on the south coast on Saturday, in a game that does not suggest a great deal of excitement.

Then again, surely these teams can only get better after struggling for so long? Well, maybe not.

Norwich have not played for three weeks and with a number of key players out, they will need to be close to perfect to snap out of their funk here. Meanwhile, Brighton are close to full strength and will have used the international break to refocus their minds. We're going for a home win.

Prediction: Brighton 2-1 Norwich
