Brighton are taking on Wolves at the Amex Stadium this evening where the Seagulls are hoping to turn around their dismal form. Brighton won only once at home in the Premier League in 2020 and could match that record here tonight in 2021, but they will have to overcome a Wolves side in mixed form with only one win in their past five league games. 

Brighton start the game with a back three and wingbacks, but there is no Tariq Lamptey who remains sidelined with a hamstring injury. Wolves deploy at back four with Nelson Semedo and Rayan Ait-Nouri as the full-backs either side of the captain Conor Coady and Romain Saiss.
