Brighton have only recently changed managers with Graham Potter being poached by Chelsea and Roberto Di Zerbi coming in. The Italian has had just two games in charge, away to Liverpool and at home to Spurs so this clash against underdogs Brentford should be the first real measure of Brighton’s level under Di Zerbi. If Leandro Trossard can put in another performance like his hat-trick against Liverpool at Anfield then the Seagulls might have too much for Brentford. Brighton are lucky to have a squad pretty much at full fitness, with the only significant absentee being midfielder Jakub Moder who will be out until the new year.

The Bees have had an interesting start to the season, winning just two league games. However the manner of these wins has been impressive. A 5-2 win over Leeds and the impressive 4-0 drubbing of Manchester United have reaffirmed that the Brentford Community Stadium is no easy place to visit. Forward Ivan Toney’s excellent goalscoring form has even seen him become the first Brentford player ever to make the England squad. On the other side of the coin, Brentford are not coming into this game with high spirits having lost 5-1 to Newcastle last time out. Captain Pontus Jansson could return from a hamstring strain for this game, and they may need him if they are to avoid a similar result against Brighton. 

Here's how they line up: 

Brentford:  Raya, Ajer, Pinnock, Mee, Wissa, Janelt, Onyeka, Jensen, Henry, Mbeumo, Toney

Brighton: Sanchez, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, March, Mac Allister, Caicedo, Estupinan, Gross, Trossard, Welbeck

Last season Brighton were one of just a few teams who did the double over Brentford, winning home and away. With just 4 points between the two sides so far this season, the Brentford vs Brighton live stream will be one not to miss.
