Trossard! Oh, what a chance. Fed by Maupay, who robbed Alioski, he blasts over.
Approaching the hour, Leeds are struggling. Struijk plays the ball out of play.
Burn heads away Raphinha's cross before Bamford can meet it, and Dallas' ball in is then collected by Robert Sanchez.
Leeds are looking to force the issue too much. They need to calm themselves down, but at least they are dominating the ball now.
Harrison shoots wide after Bamford is dispossessed in the area after being fed by Raphinha. Better from Leeds.
Maupay fires wide after a build up of sustained Brighton pressure. Veltman forced Raphinha back before White found the Frenchman. His shot was scuffed.
Free kick for Brighton after Dallas fouls Mac Allister. It comes to nothing.
Leeds, who need to do better in this second half, get us under way. No changes.
- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME! Brighton deservedly lead. They've been bold, energetic and expansive while dealing with what Leeds are throwing their way.
Two minutes to be added here.
- Yellow cardLuke AylingLeeds United
Yellow card for Ayling. He brought down Trossard, stopping another attack.
The other side of Phillips' absence is the lack of presence in the middle. Brighton are finding so much space in the middle and taking full advantage of it.
Leeds are struggling badly without Kalvin Phillips. Their passing is nowhere near crisp enough as Stuart Dallas and Harrison fail to link-up down the right.
Brighton should be thrilled with their first half hour. Leeds are beginning to see more of the ball, but the five-man defence is dealing with everything so far.
Indirect free kick given after Dunk's clearance from Alioski's cross hits Kevin Friend.
Ben White robs Raphinha and drives forward. His effort is blocked, but Brighton are right on top here.
Solly March's free kick is cleared by Liam Cooper and headed back in by Dunk. Burn can't get sa good connection on it and his effort goes over.
OFF THE BAR! Lovely one-touch football again from Brighton, and Maupay's searching cross deflects onto the woodwork.
Brighton have dropped 12 points from winning positions this season. This one is far from over.
- GoalNeal MaupayBrighton & Hove Albion
GOOOOOAAAAL! Brighton lead. Great combination between Mac Allister and Trossard unlocks Leeds and the Frenchman is free to tap home.
Klich shoots over after a Leeds cross is cleared. Worth an effort, but he should have done better.
Heavy touch by Burn sees him foul Harrison.
Harrison fouled by March after Dunk's long ball. That could be a key battle.
Maupay goes down in the area under a challenge from Ayling. Nothing given.
Leeds are dominating the ball after a fairly even opening to the game. Apologies for my lack of updates initially, had some technical issues.
CHANCE! Alioski's drilled cross just evades Rodrigo in the middle. Dunk dealt with it well.
Foul by Neal Maupay on Ayling.
- 1st Half
Brighton kick us off here.
Less than 10 minutes until kick off. What are your thoughts on this one?
Ben White is going to be huge for Brighton today, against the side he played for on loan last season.
Leeds have the highest goals to game ratio for and against. They are certainly entertaining, and that should mean a busy afternoon for me!
A little bit of team news I missed earlier. Kalvin Phillips, suspended, is replaced by Liam Phillips.
As for Leeds, they'll know victory can take them into the top half. Patrick Bamford will be looking to add to his 10 goals this season, but Raphinha will be the man to look out for today.
Graham Potter will be aware of the need for three points today, especially considering West Brom's victory over Wolves earlier today. Just three points separate the Baggies and the Seagulls.
For all their respective plaudits this season, both Leeds and Brighton have received their fair share of critics. The visitors, in particular, have been accused of style over substance. They have just two away wins this season.
On paper at least, this one could be a great game. Everybody knows about Leeds' approach, which has seen them score 13 goals in their last six games, two of which also yielded two clean sheets. Brighton have been involved in four score draws from their last six.
Brighton have made some changes from their brave defeat at Manchester City on Wednesday. Percy Tau, Bernardo and Davy Propper are out, with Solly March, Pascal Gross and Neal Maupay in.
Here is your Leeds line up for today. No Illan Meslier, with Kiko Casilla continuing in goal.
