Brighton and Hove Albion v Portsmouth - Preview

Ben White and Adam Lallana miss out for Brighton

Ben White and Adam Lallana are definite absentees for Brighton’s Carabao Cup clash with Portsmouth on Thursday night.

Both players limped off during the Seagulls’ 3-1 Premier League defeat to Chelsea but it is hoped they might be in contention for Sunday’s clash with Newcastle.

Boss Graham Potter has indicated he will make wholesale changes, with the likes of midfielder Davy Propper and Dutch defender Joel Veltman likely to feature.

Portsmouth midfielder Bryn Morris faces a late fitness test after sustaining a hip injury in his side’s goalless draw against Shrewsbury.

Defender Callum Johnson is cup-tied having already played in the competition for his former club Accrington, so James Bolton is likely to step in.

Alex Bass is still sidelined with an ankle injury he picked up last month, but boss Kenny Jackett has no additional injury concerns.

Carabao Cup Betting Tips: Brighton v Portsmouth

There’s more Carabao Cup action on Thursday with a south coast derby as Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion host League One Portsmouth.

The Seagulls didn’t make the start they will have wanted to on Monday with a 1-3 home defeat to Chelsea, but there are plenty of positives that can be taken from their all-round display, not least from young right-back Tariq Lamptey putting in an encouraging performance against his former club. 

 

Under Graham Potter last season Brighton failed to mount a cup run, going out in the third round of both the League and FA Cups, but having consolidated their top-flight status for the past three years may put more focus into doing better this season, having bulked out their squad in the transfer market this summer.

 

However, two of the more significant first-team additions - Ben White, returning after an impressive loan at promotion-winning Leeds, and former Liverpool man Adam Lallana - both limped off on Monday and remain major doubts three nights on. 

 

That could see new recruit Joel Veltman make his competitive debut in defence, with Alireza Jahanbakhsh in line to offer extra guile behind the strikeforce - with youngster Aaron Connelly expected to be given the nod up top.

 

Paddy Power back Brighton as the favourites here, at just 4/7 for the home win, while a draw is priced at 13/5 and a shock away victory for the third-tier outfit at 5/1. 

 

Portsmouth will be prioritising their League One campaign, gunning for promotion having suffered playoff heartbreak in the last two seasons under Kenny Jackett, but have been known to give the domestic cup competitions some attention, reaching the EFL Trophy final in each of the last two seasons. Premier League opposition is a different prospect, however. 

 

The visitors were left disappointed on their return to league action at the weekend, having played out a goalless draw at home to Shrewsbury, but their last League Cup outing was altogether a lot more open and entertaining, 3-3 against Stevenage (won on penalties).

 

We recommend backing Brighton to win here, but look for some extra value. Betfair Sportsbook have an odds boost on Alireza Jahanbakhsh to score first & Brighton to win at 15/2.

    Brighton And Hove Albion 4-0 Portsmouth - Match Report

    Brighton ease past Portsmouth in Carabao Cup

     

    Alireza Jahanbakhsh scored one and made another as a fully-changed Brighton side eased into the Carabao Cup third round by thumping Portsmouth 4-0.

    Iran international Jahanbakhsh teed up the first-half opener for Alexis Mac Allister, before thumping home to double the Seagulls’ advantage early in the second period.

    Bernardo and Viktor Gyokeres joined Mac Allister in claiming their first Albion goals to seal a resounding success over outclassed League One opposition.

    Pompey rarely tested back-up Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele at the Amex Stadium and could easily have been on the end of a far more embarrassing scoreline.

    Graham Potter’s hosts will travel to Championship club Preston in the next round.

    Following Monday’s defeat to Chelsea, Albion boss Potter changed his entire starting XI for the second-round tie and filled his bench with inexperienced youngsters.

    Holland defender Joel Veltman, a summer signing from Ajax, was handed a debut, while keeper Steele was brought in for his first senior appearance since January 2019.

    The raft of changes never looked likely to backfire as the Premier League hosts dominated possession all evening.

    Argentina midfielder Mac Allister made the breakthrough in the 38th minute.

    The creative 21-year-old, who has spent time on loan with former club Argentinos Juniors and Boca Juniors since signing for the Seagulls in January 2019, arrived unmarked to nod in Jahanbakhsh’s pinpoint delivery after Marcus Harness had sloppily conceded possession.

    Albion had been knocking on the door for a while at that point. Gyokeres forced Pompey keeper Craig MacGillivray into a smart early save, Pascal Gross had an effort headed off the line by Jack Whatmough, while stand-in Seagulls skipper Dale Stephens struck the base of the left post from distance.

    Portsmouth, who came from 3-1 down to beat Stevenage on penalties in round one, showed three changes from Saturday’s goalless draw with Shrewsbury.

    Kenny Jackett’s men had come close to an early opener when Seagulls defender Dan Burn almost diverted Ronan Curtis’ 16th-minute free-kick into his own net.

    Just before the break, Albion new boy Veltman inadvertently blocked a goalbound shot while lying injured inside the hosts’ six-yard box as Harness attempted to atone for his costly error.

    Any hopes of a fightback were quickly extinguished early in the second period.

    Jahanbakhsh, who has been a largely peripheral figure since a £17million move from AZ Alkmaar in 2018, gave Potter a reminder of his talents by lashing into the roof of the net from just inside the box at the end of an incisive Albion breakaway in the 54th minute.

    Brazilian defender Bernardo emphatically nodded in his maiden Seagulls goal from a Gross corner just three minutes later to take the game away from Jackett’s men.

    Sweden forward Gyokeres completed the scoring 19 minutes from time, easily turning James Bolton to slide under MacGillivray.

    Steele was finally forced into a save inside the final 10 minutes, repelling a powerful header from Sean Raggett to ensure it was a fruitless trip along the south coast for Pompey.
