Brentford vs Brighton has a lot riding on it. The Bees have slipped into the relegation mix while the Seagulls need a win to be in with a chance of European soccer next season — and you can watch it live today from anywhere with a VPN.   

The teams are in and Brentford are unchanged from their 1-1 draw with Manchester United at the weekend. That means Ivan Toney, Yoane Wissa and Mads Roerslev all start for the Bees, with Keane Lewis-Potter also in from the off. Bryan Mbeumo is on the bench with the returning Sergio Reguilon. Brighton make four changes as Joao Pedro returns alongside Igor Julio, Facundo Buonanotte and Adam Lallana. Simon Adingra is also in from the off, while Julio Enciso is back in a matchday squad after recovering from injury.

Brentford have struggled lately, winning just three games since November 4 despite the return of captain Ivan Toney at the turn of the year. The England man started well but has now gone six league games without a goal and the Bees haven't won since mid-February. Five points above the relegation zone, Thomas Frank's side need to pick up some wins soon and the boss will be hoping Kristoffer Ajer's equalizer nine minutes into injury time on Saturday against Man United will inspire his side.

Following a stellar start to the season, Brighton have returned to mid-table but still have European ambitions after their Europa League last 16 defeat to Roma in March. Manager Roberto De Zerbi will have been disappointed his side let an early lead slip against Liverpool on Sunday. Top scorer Joao Pedro remains absent, so Welbeck and in-form Pascal Gross again carry the creative burden.

There is so much riding on today's game, you won't want to miss it. Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out how to watch Premier League live streams.
