3pm Saturday

Brighton have been pretty good at getting results against the teams around them and they are favourites to defeat Swansea at the Amex.

However, Swansea are a much-improved side under Carlos Carvalhal and head to the south coast after a ten-match unbeaten sequence.

A close game is in the cards and Brighton's lively Colombian attacker Jose Izquierdo goalscorer looks a tempting first-scorer punt, having notched in each of his last two games.
