| Today Headlines | Local News
Brighton and Leeds will both seek to find their way back to victory when they face off in the Premier League this weekend.
The Seagulls started the season with a bang with four wins in their first five games, but are now on a seven-game streak without three points.
Meanwhile, Leeds have won only twice throughout the season and last Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Tottenham left them just one place above the relegation zone.
