Graham Potter’s men beat Tottenham 3-1 before the international break, and they followed it up with a thrilling 3-2 triumph against Everton on Saturday. That lifted the Seagulls up to 14<sup>th</sup> in the table. Norwich are marooned in 19<sup>th</sup> after taking just one point from their last five games. Their 3-2 win against champions Man City now feels like a distant memory, and their slump in form has been alarming.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Centre-back Shane Duffy has been out with an injury for Brighton, so Potter has gone with a traditional back four. Captain Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster are at the heart of the defence, with Martin Montoya and Dan Burn operating as full-backs. Neal Maupay looks like an excellent signing and Aaron Connolly has bags of potential, meaning Brighton are no longer reliant on the ageing legs of Glenn Murray for goals, although he offers a strong option off the bench. Summer signing Leandro Trossard will also be pushing to start in this game after making a huge impact when he came on for Pascal Gross against Everton.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Norwich’s slump in form has coincided with a brutal injury crisis. Timm Klose, Christoph Zimmerman and Grant Hanley are a long-term casualties, but a few key players are starting to return. Onel Hernandez was fit enough for a place on the bench against Man Utd, and he came on to score a late goal. Alex Tettey was able to start that game, and a few defenders are now back in business. Key men Emmanuel Buendia, Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell are all fit, but Pukki – who scored six times in his first five Premier League matches – is now on a five-game goal drought.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Pukki’s barren spell in front of goal has not helped Norwich’s cause in recent weeks, but he could point to a distinct lack of service. A bigger problem for the Canaries has been defensively, as they have shipped 24 goals in 10 games thus far. Only Southampton have a worse defensive record and that is because they lost 9-0 to Leicester last time out. Brighton have now won two home games on the bounce, scoring six times, so they will relish the opportunity to face a Norwich side low on confidence.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes">Brighton to win at 1.75 (3/4) with Ladbrokes</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
