Stoke – Brighton Preview: Team News, Latest Form and Probable Lineups

Now, we will take a closer look at both teams ahead of their meeting in FA Cup, including our predicted Stoke vs Brighton lineups:

Stoke

In the last six games in Championship, Stoke City has two wins, one draw, and three losses, so the team has clearly been inconsistent recently, which was pretty much the case with them this entire season. On the bright side, they are nine points ahead of the relegation zone and they are still in play in FA Cup, where they can reach quarter-finals with a win over Brighton at home.

When it comes to team news, Stoke remains without Nick Powell and most likely Axel Tuanzebe.

Stoke Predicted Lineup:

Sarkic – Sterling, Wilmot, Jagielka, Tymon – Thompson, Baker, Clucas – Brown, Gayle, Celina

Brighton

With three wins, two draws, and one loss in the last six matches in Premier League, Brighton has done very well recently, but that was the case with the team the entire season and not even a coaching change hurt their play. Overall, the team is eight in the standings and in the race for spots that would take them to Europe, but their FA Cup run could extend enough for them to earn Europe that way.

Meanwhile, Adam Lallana, Jakub Moder, Danny Welbeck, and Levi Colwill are all out or highly doubtful with injuries.

Brighton Predicted Lineup:

Steele – Veltman, Dunk, Webster – Lamptey, Caicedo, Gross, March – Sarmiento, Mitoma – Ferguson

Player to Watch: Kaoru Mitoma

Since the guest are pretty clear favourites in this match and we can see them winning, our player to watch comes from their squad and it is Kaoru Mitoma.

The Japanese winger isn't a regular starter for Brighton in Premier League, but he still managed to score one goal this season, in addition to dishing out five assists in seventeen appearances. So, his creativity can be a problem for Stoke in this match.
