    Johnny Cantor - who covers everything that goes on at Brighton for BBC Radio Sussex - feels the Seagulls and manager Graham Potter will be "prepared" for the exit of Neal Maupay, who is being pursued by Everton.

    Maupay scored eight league goals last season and on his Albion Unlimited podcast, Cantor has detailed how that contribution helped secure a dozen points.

    Everton are close to signing Brighton forward Neal Maupay.

    Toffees boss Frank Lampard is keen on bringing in attacking reinforcements after losing Richarlison to Tottenham in the summer and an early-season injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

    In his Friday news conference, Lampard would not confirm if Maupay was due to arrive at Goodison Park.

    But when asked if there would be signings in attack by the end of the window, he told BBC Sport: "It will happen."

    Maupay has scored 26 goals in 102 appearances for Brighton, having signed for the Seagulls for ÂŁ16m from Brentford in 2019.

  3. Who will finish higher in the league table?published at 16:00 25 August

    Brighton: Stuart Matthews, Proud Seagulls, external

    This is a tough one. Both sides have won two and drawn one so far, so we're level pegging on points, with just goal difference to separate us.

    Leeds are certainly marching on. They struggled last season - scraping into 17th place, while Brighton finished ninth - and I feel their bubble this season will burst sooner rather than later. Don't get me wrong, they are a good side, but I just think that previous performance speaks for itself.

    Both squads lost star players over the summer, but has it shown? Simple answer: no. They have both started the season fantastically well. If they were going to struggle with the departures, it would have shown by now - but they have both beaten top-six sides in Manchester United and Chelsea.

    Perhaps it's not actually been a loss, but a gain.

    Maybe Brighton will get lucky and actually make the top six, but it's more likely to be seventh or eighth. I can't seeing Leeds bettering that - even though it's early days and there is plenty still to happen.

    Leeds: Jess Furness, Her Game Too, external

    This will be a close one in the final standings, but Leeds will edge it. We've had a superb start to the season - currently in third, with Brighton just a couple of places below and both sides taking seven points from nine.

    I think we will beat Brighton this weekend and, ultimately, end the season a few places above them. I don't want to get too carried away by our start, but I do wholeheartedly believe we will have a much more positive campaign overall.

    Brighton have lost a couple of their top-quality players in the transfer window. We did too, but we have now enhanced our ranks with the likes of Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Adams, Marc Roca and Rasmus Kristensen. I'd take our squad over Brighton's all day long. We are younger, hungrier and much more exciting - and that will be the reason why we finish higher.

    Jesse Marsch has created something special. He has improved our squad with summer signings who are so eager to please the Elland Road faithful.

    Anything can happen in the Premier League - as we have seen most recently with us beating Chelsea - so could a top-six finish be on the cards? Why not?

    Brighton have loaned midfielder Kacper Kozlowski to Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem for the rest of the season.

    Kozlowski joined the Seagulls in January and spent the second half of last season on loan at Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in Belgium.

    Brighton's pathway development manager Gordon Greer said the move was a "great opportunity" for the 18-year-old.

    “It’s also World Cup year and I’m sure, having featured for Poland at last year’s Euros, he will be keen to play regularly," said Greer.

    “We will be watching and monitoring his progress closely as the season unfolds and we all wish him well for his time in Holland.”

  5. Brighton v Leeds: Head-to-head recordpublished at 12:04 25 August

    Brighton v Leeds 4 Premier League games - Brighton 2 wins, 4 goals and 3 clean sheets; Leeds 0 wins, 1 goal, 1 clean sheet
    • Brighton have won eight of their past 11 league games against Leeds, though both Premier League meetings between the sides last season ended level.

    • After winning three consecutive away league games against Brighton between 2007 and 2009, Leeds are winless in their past eight visits.

    • Brighton are unbeaten in their past eight Premier League games (W5 D3), their longest-ever run in the competition.

    • Leeds are third in the Premier League, their highest position going into a top-flight league match since September 2002. Last season, they went into every match other than their season opener in the bottom half of the league.

  6. Ferguson hopes to take Albion chancespublished at 09:52 25 August

    Teenage striker Evan Ferguson found the net for Albion in the Carabao Cup win at Forest Green and afterwards told BBC Radio Sussex Sport about how he's being encouraged to take his opportunities at the club.

  7. Potter praises youngsters after cup progresspublished at 07:57 25 August

    Graham Potter hailed "a good night" for Brighton as his side eased past Forest Green in the Carabao Cup.

    The Seagulls boss made 11 changes from the win at West Ham with his inexperienced side boasting an average age of 22.

    That didn't matter as goals from Deniz Undav, Steven Alzate and teenager Evan Ferguson saw them seal a 3-0 win and earn a third-round trip to Arsenal.

    "I thought we played well in the first half and scored two good goals and had control," Potter said.

    "In the second half, we had to suffer a little bit so it was nice to go through and keep a clean sheet.

    "There were a lot of guys who haven’t played much football. We gave opportunities to young players and you saw that a little bit in the second half.

    "It was a proud moment for those who made their debuts. They applied themselves really well and we learned a lot about them."

  8. Potter 'looking forward to Undav's involvement' against Forest Greenpublished at 15:26 23 August

    Graham Potter says Deniz Undav will be involved in Brighton's Carabao Cup game against Forest Green.

    The German forward came on in injury time against Manchester United and was an unused substitute against Newcastle and West Ham.

    But, after naming the same starting XI in the Seagulls' first three Premier League games this season, Potter has hinted he will probably make a number of changes tomorrow.

    On Undav, he said: "He’s going to be in the squad for sure and we are really happy with Deniz.

    "He is settling in well and obviously the team is doing well so he is having to be patient. That’s fine, that’s normal, but in terms of what he is bringing every day, he is getting to know players, the club, the environment, the league. But we are looking forward to his involvement tomorrow.

    "Historically you look at what we have done in this competition at the start of the round. Where we are at, we played on Sunday and again on Saturday.

    "It is an important game for us because it gives us chance to look at some guys who haven’t played as much and some of the younger guys as well. We want to go there and win but we know we are playing an opponent who want to do the same as well."

    Potter said there is currently nothing further to add on any ins and outs before the transfer window closes.

    "You have to anticipate the things that may happen but the squad is in a good place," he added.

    "The group is competitive, we’ve got some different options. When the window is open you have to keep looking but we are quite calm and quite confident with what we have."

  9. Sanchez makes Garth's team of the weekpublished at 09:15 23 August

    Garth's team of the week

    Garth Crooks has picked Robert Sanchez in his team of the week after his clean sheet in Brighton's impressive 2-0 win over West Ham.

    "The selection of Robert Sanchez is as much a testimony to the performances of the Brighton team as it is to their goalkeeper," said Garth.

    "Albion's 2-0 win was a bad result for West Ham and confirmed all our fears that their defeat last week against Nottingham Forest was no fluke. The Seagulls however appear a match for any team these days.

    "Sanchez looks very comfortable between the sticks and pulled off two outstanding saves that, had they gone in, might have robbed the best side of victory. West Ham have problems and they need to find their rhythm sharpish. If not, the fans will turn on David Moyes very quickly."

  10. 'Potter a master of his troops'published at 13:21 22 August

    Your Views banner

    We asked for your views after Brighton continued their fine start to the season with victory at West Ham on Sunday.

    Here are some of your thoughts:

    Martin: You know you're getting better when you can go away, play pretty well - but not perfectly - and still be totally unconcerned by the opposition for 90 minutes. Brighton were always the better team, and were always going to win. But if we're going to progress, we’ve got to accept that we need to be beating 'teams like West Ham'.

    Ian: Not only is Potter a master tactician, he's also master of his troops - who put his plans into action perfectly.

    Ben: We played well and deserved the three points - a well dispatched penalty (something we have been missing as of late) from Mac Allister and a composed strike from Trossard to beat Fabianski at close range. We looked the far better side and dominated a below-par West Ham side. Up the Albion!

  11. 'They've set the blueprint' - flourishing Brighton keep improvingpublished at 09:49 22 August

    Brighton are in a "really good place" and can push even further up the table this season, according to former Birmingham and Wigan defender Alex Bruce.

    Graham Potter's side continued their fine start to the season with a convincing win over West Ham on Sunday and are two points off the top after the opening three games.

    Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast, Bruce admitted how impressed he has been with the work Potter has done.

    "Their ambition first and foremost is always to stay in the Premier League," he said. "But the way he has got them playing, they can really push on for Europe.

    "They are a really difficult side for anyone on their day.

    "The results they are getting do not surprise me and they have set the blueprint with the way the club is run. They are in a really good place."

  13. West Ham 0-2 Brighton: Analysispublished at 17:11 21 August

    Mantej Mann, BBC Sport

    Brighton continue to impress at the start of this season as they pick up a seventh point from a possible nine.

    Graham Potter has produced a well-oiled side who remain compact until they win the ball and set off at a canter.

    West Ham were comfortable in possession until Brighton won it and hit them on the counter-attack, leading to Danny Welbeck being brought down by Thilo Kehrer for the penalty.

    The second was also a slick move as Pervis Estupinan came off the bench to fizz a pass into Pascal Gross, who turned it around the corner for Leandro Trossard to finish.

    Two goals from two shots on target is impressive and gives the Seagulls a platform to launch a bid for European football.
