Brighton will be aiming to rubber stamp Premier League survival this weekend as they play host to local rivals Southampton.

Both Brighton and Southampton will be confident of already doing enough to seal a top-flight spot but a European place looks beyond them.

And with a real end-of-season feel about it, the team news is positive for Brighton, as Leandro Trossard returns, and Neal Maupay looks set to start.

Yves Bissouma and Shane Duffy are both still out with Enock Mwepu and Joel Veltman continuing to fill in.

As for Southampton, their injury picture remains the same, with no new updates, but Ralph Hasenhuttl is expected to rotate.

Che Adams has come off the bench in the last two games with teenage full back Tino Livramento also pushing for a recall.

And this South Coast derby kicks off with a 2pm start tomorrow at the AMEX Stadium.
