Brighton v Watford

Brighton's injury problems are mounting. Winger Kazenga LuaLua is the latest casualty after suffering a knee injury which requires surgery and will keep him out for up to eight weeks. He joins Liam Bridcutt (hernia), Andrea Orlandi, Will Hoskins (both knee), Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles), Kemy Agustien (hamstring) and Leonardo Ulloa (foot) in a crowded treatment room.

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola will assess a trio of players. Top scorer Troy Deeney and Scotland international Ikechi Anya (both calf) and Almen Abdi (foot) are battling to be fit for the Hornets who have lost two of their last three league outings. Defender Davide Faraoni returns from a one-match ban having picked up his fifth booking of the season during the 2-1 win at Huddersfield.

Last season: Brighton 1 Watford 3, Watford 0 Brighton 1

Last five league matches: Brighton W L D L D; Watford W W L W L

Top scorers: Jose Ulloa (Brighton) 4; Troy Deeney (Watford) 6

Referee: Keith Hill (Hertfordshire).

Our verdict: Brighton 2 Watford 4

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
