Leeds United v Brighton: match preview

Leeds will come face to face with the one that got away when Ben White returns to Elland Road for Brighton. White excelled for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as they won promotion last season but Leeds failed to secure his services on a permanent basis and the centre-back is now an integral element of Brighton’s struggle to avoid relegation. Bielsa harbours immense respect for Potter and predicts a game of “considerable tactical diversity.” The Argentinian, still suffering from a central defensive injury crisis, can only reflect on what might have been had he retained White.
