Brighton and Hove Albion striker Neal Maupay has seven Premier League goals this season and will hope to add to his impressive scoring run against Sheffield United

Albion, who are 13th in the table, have gained six points from their last three matches, having beaten Arsenal, followed by entertaining draws against Wolves and old rivals Crystal Palace.

Chris Wilder's Sheffield United have made an impressive start to life in the Premier League. They are fifth after 17 matches - above the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal - and are just four points off the Champions League places.

They arrive at the Amex on the back of consecutive victories against Norwich City and Aston Villa.

Neal Maupay celebrates his latest goal at Crystal Palace

The two teams didn't meet last season but the managers did. Graham Potter was in charge at Swansea and enjoyed a 1-0 triumph against Wilder's United at the Liberty Stadium in January.

Potter also got the better of Wilder in his first match in charge of Swansea in August 2018 as they beat United 2-1 at Bramwell Lane.
