Southampton host Brighton in the Premier League on Thursday, with both teams impressing in the second half of the season.

Saints’ high press and determination saw them sneak a late point off Manchester United on Monday night, leaving them 12th in the table.

Brighton have lost three of the last four, but those defeats came against both Manchester clubs and Liverpool.

Graham Potter’s team have looked impressive when on the front foot, though, and will feel they can attack their reasonably local rivals.
