Leeds v Brighton live! Score, updates, how to watch, stream

Leeds vs Brighton is a huge game for the hosts on Sunday (watch live, 9 a.m. ET on Peacock bounty) because Jesse Marsch’s team really needs a win to keep their hopes alive.


After three straight defeats, Leeds sit 18th in the table and Burnley and Everton directly ahead of them have a game in hand against the Yorkshire club. Leeds have been their worst enemy in recent defeats, as Luke Ayling was sent off in the first half against Arsenal and Dan James was also shown an early red card against Chelsea. These rash decisions, along with a long list of injuries, toppled Leeds towards the end of the season and there is so much pressure on them. They just need to beat Brighton at home this weekend to give themselves the best chance of staying in the Premier League ahead of the final game of the season at Brentford. This is the critical moment for Leeds.

As for Brighton, well, they are sitting well and could move up to eighth in the table if they win. The Seagulls beat Manchester United 4-0 last time out and beat Wolves 3-0 before that as they fly late in the season. Graham Potter’s team has regained its clinical edge. They have a wonderful possession-based style and the big issue has always been scoring enough goals. If Brighton continue on this trajectory, they are strong contenders for a European spot next season. What a job Potter did. Some would say it’s magic…

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leeds vs Brighton.
