Brighton Vs Swansea city
Brighton & Hove Albion go into theirs EFL Cup third round tie with Swansea City want to build on their excellent start to the new Premier League season. While the Seagulls are in the top four in the premier league of English football, Swansea is currently in 21st place in the championship. According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur were among a number of clubs that opted not to withdraw when they were appointed Graham potter during summer.
Their loss, however, was Brighton’s gain as Potter and his squad apparently moved up a level in the first five weeks of the season. The Seagulls have been efficiently over entertaining, only scoring seven goals in their four wins, but it has given the club the springboard for better things in 2021-22.
Potter has always taken a different approach to EFL Cup matches and has on many occasions named teams made up entirely of prospects and U23 players. However, with some of the players who appeared in Cardiff City’s win last month on loan since then, Potter could potentially see this competition as one his team could win. Despite the likelihood of changes being made for this competition, we still expect Brighton to make it through this game. Swansea has the potential to surprise, but competition for spots should inspire a strong performance from the Seagulls.
Predictions: Brighton Albion win.
