We return to the scene of the crime. In fuchsia pink.
No one will forget when the Whites inserted themselves into the Oxford English Dictionary alongside the definition of ‘smash and grab’ back in February. But to do it again will be quite the task.
We’re set to name an unchanged side at the AmEx on Sunday. Diop’s is still three-to-four weeks away, so the left-sided CB duo of Ream and Bassey will remain. Likewise, King Kenny’s still sidelined, so the impressive Timothy Castagne continues at RB.
If changes were to be rung by a newly committed Marco Silva, then Lukic could make way for Reed in the centre of the park, and Iwobi might finally be rewarded for his string of impressive substitute appearances, but we’ll not know until 1pm on Sunday.
The Seagulls will be flying after a 2-0 win over European giants Ajax on Thursday night, but you’d rather face a team like Brighton after Europa League exertions and try to exploit any signs of fatigue.
We’re firmly in the midst of a tricky run between now and the next international break. We’ll take a result from anywhere. But as long as it’s still tight by 80 minutes, you can expect some nervous Brighton faces in the stands and on the pitch – and that could be our chance to strike. You Whites.
