Focus on Brighton, team news
The Seagulls’ 24 goals scored in the Premier League is respectable and worthy of European contention, but their 20 conceded is decidedly bottom-half. Injuries to Lewis Dunk and Pervis Estupinan returned against Ajax, and that can help quite a bit.
OUT: Julio Enciso (knee), Tariq Lamptey (undisclosed), Danny Welbeck (other – long-term), Solly March (knee), James Milner (muscular) | QUESTIONABLE: Jakub Moder (knee)
Focus on Sheffield United, team news
Blades are scoring less than a goal a game and conceding almost three per Premier League contest. The injury list is long, and Heckingbottom has his work cut out for him as he tries to get an undermanned United out of the bottom three.
OUT: John Egan (ankle), Anel Ahmedhodzic (thigh), Chris Basham (ankle), Tom Davies (thigh), Daniel Jebbison (illness), Rhys Norrington-Davies (thigh), Max Lowe (ankle), Rhian Brewster (thigh ) | QUESTIONABLE: Oliver McBurnie (groin), Anel Ahmedhodzic (thigh), Gustavo Hamer (thigh).
