Fulham vs Brighton & Hove Albion: How to watch on TV, live stream, kick-off time and team news

Fulham are back in Premier League action just three days after their 2-1 loss at Arsenal as they take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Craven Cottage on Tuesday.

Saturday’s defeat against the Gunners was the Cottagers’ first since being promoted back to the top flight, putting an end to an unbeaten spell of three matches.

Marco Silva’s side have collected five points out of a possible 12 so far and sit 12th in the Premier League table. Tuesday’s opposition Brighton meanwhile are comfortably in the top four.

The Seagulls have enjoyed their greatest-ever start to a top division season having won three of their opening four matches. They’re one of just five sides yet to lose a game, and they’ve conceded a league-low of one goal.

Graham Potter and his team will be desperate for a win on Tuesday evening as three points will guarantee them a night at the summit of the table. Fulham will have to be at their absolute best if they want to collect any points for themselves.

Confidence can be taken, though, from the fact that Brighton have never beaten the Cottagers in the Premier League. Three games have ended in draws, whereas one was a famous 4-2 victory at Craven Cottage.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Fulham vs Brighton, including the latest team news, the kick-off time, and how to watch live on UK television.

Tricky winger Harry Wilson and big-money summer signing Manor Solomon have both been ruled out with knee injuries. Loaned-in central defender Shane Duffy is unavailable as he’s unable to face his parent club.

Brighton meanwhile are without experienced attacking midfielder Adam Lallana as he’s sidelined with a calf problem. Versatile defender Joel Veltman is being assessed for a neck injury suffered against Leeds United.
