Brighton are winless in their last 17 Premier League away games (D5 L12) and manager Chris Hughton wants his side to improve on the road - starting on Saturday.

"Looking at it logically, they'll be the favourites as they're the home side and we've both faced a similar calibre of opposition so far this term," he said.

"I think it will be a bit of a relief for them that they're not playing one of the league's so-called bigger sides in the top six. We've also had some very tough games, and this is another one for us - we know it's a challenge to do better away from home for ourselves."
