- OffAdama TraoréWolverhampton Wanderers
- OnRúben VinagreWolverhampton Wanderers
Moutinho's free-kick is terrible and now Ruben Vinagre replaces Traore. Are Wolves happy to take the point?
- Yellow cardDale StephensBrighton & Hove Albion
Yellow! Stephens goes into the book for a needless foul on Traore on the edge of the penalty area. One last chance for Wolves...
There will be THREE added minutes to play.
Neves dinks a delightful cross to Cutrone at the back post but he can't get any power in his header to trouble Ryan.
Brighton's two centre-halves are caught out by a simple ball over the top, but Ryan is off his line to smother Cutrone's cross.

- OnPatrick CutroneWolverhampton Wanderers
Wolves sub: The visitors are going for this. Patrick Cutrone replaces Jimenez.
No penalty! Traore's shot is deflected and hits Burn inside the penalty area. The Wolves supporters are demanding a penalty for handball but replays show it struck his chest.
- Yellow cardDan BurnBrighton & Hove Albion
There's a mix-up between Doherty and Patricio and chaos ensues in the Wolves penalty area, but Brighton fail to capitalise. Traore breaks but he's taken out by Burn, who is booked.
Wolves are struggling to hurt Brighton with their attacks. Too often the final ball is lacking.
- OffDiogo JotaWolverhampton Wanderers

Close! Now it's Wolves' turn to give the ball away in their own half. Jonny gifts the ball straight to Stephens whose first time curls wide of Patricio's far post.
Shot! Now that he has a team mate to play off, Maupay is seeing more of the ball. He curls a shot at goal but it's comfortable for Patricio. Didn't get the bend or power he would have wanted.
Traore has a shot blocked on the edge of the penalty area. Wolves haven't had too many chances since the restart but there's still 20 minutes to play.
- OffPascal GroßBrighton & Hove Albion
- OnAlireza JahanbakhshBrighton & Hove Albion
Double Brighton sub: Gross and Trossard make way for Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Glenn Murray.
No penalty! Maupay runs into Coady who simply stands his ground as the Brighton forward goes to ground before appealing for a foul. It's never a penalty and the referee agrees.
Brighton are preparing a sub.
Moutinho's delightful pass to Doherty sets the wideman free on the right - but Dunk is alert to the danger and makes an important intervention.
No penalty is the decision - and it's the right one. Dunk was already on the ground when the ball hit his hand. It certainly wasn't deliberate.
VAR CHECK! The ball makes contact with Dunk's hand in the penalty area - but was it enough for a foul and a Wolves penalty?
'Come on Brighton' rings around the Amex as the home supporters grow impatient with constant sideways passing.
Brighton are still dominating possession but they're playing a high line and you fear for the hosts if they lose the ball. Wolves have plenty of pace on the break.
A patient Brighton move comes to nothing as Burns takes a heavy touch, taking the ball out for a Wolves goal-kick.
Brighton are enjoying their best spell of the second half. Wolves cannot get out at present.
Wolves deal with the corner but Brighton recycle the ball before Trossard rolls a weak shot wide of goal.
Maupay is Brighton's livewire and with no support, he shoots from 25 yards. It takes a deflection and the hosts have a corner.
Wolves have generally looked more threatening than Brighton, but for a few minutes in the first half when they fell asleep. The visitors must be favourites to win this.
Brighton continue to play with a high line and Traore 's through ball searching for Jota is very dangerous but Ryan is off his line quickly and whacks it clear.
Doherty is well forward and his glancing header causes Ryan some concern but the Brighton shot-stopper gets comfortably behind it.
- 2nd Half
Kick-off! No changes at the break - more of the same, please!
- End of 1st Half
A hugely entertaining first half comes to a close. We have witnessed the best and worst of Brighton under Graham Potter: some breath-taking attacking football but making mistakes while trying to play out from the back is becoming a costly habit.
There will be one added minute before the half-time whistle.
- GoalDiogo JotaWolverhampton Wanderers
GOAL! Brighton 2-2 Wolves: Propper goes from hero to zero! He passes it straight to Jonny in a dangerous area, he feeds Jota in the penalty area and he's allowed to turn, slotting it past Ryan with a shot that nestles in the corner of the net.
It's amazing what a goal can do for a team and Brighton are swarming all over Wolves. Can they grab a third before the half-time break?
He has been really impressive, just ask Freddie Ljungberg!
Just wide! This is a great chance for Brighton to make it three, but Mooy flashes his shot agonisingly wide of Patricio's goal.
It was mentioned earlier that Brighton have never won a Premier League game after falling behind at home. Well, today could well be the day. They're full of confidence now.
- GoalDavy PröpperBrighton & Hove Albion
GOAL! Brighton 2-1 Wolves: Within a matter of moments, Brighton have turned this game on its head! It's another cracking goal by the hosts. Mooy is involved, of course, he is, feeding Trossard on the flank. He creates the opening for his cross and picks out Propper beautifully and his bullet header leaves Patricio with no chance.
- GoalNeal MaupayBrighton & Hove Albion
GOAL! Brighton 1-1 Wolves: For the second time in three days, Maupay is on the scoresheet. Wolves are undone by a simple long ball out of defence. Maupay latches onto it, takes a touch to control it and seems to catch Patricio by surprise with an early shot that flies into the corner of the goal. What a goal.
Chance! Brighton are looking brittle. It's another quality ball from Jimenez who knows exactly where Jota is. One-on-one with the goalkeeper, Jota is denied by Ryan who makes a crucial save.
The goal had been coming. Wolves are terrorising Brighton with their fluidity in attack and their pace on the channels. Alzate looks like a rabbit caught in the headlights at full-back for the hosts.
- GoalDiogo JotaWolverhampton Wanderers
GOAL! Brighton 0-1 Wolves: Wonderfully worked goal by Wolves! Jota drives infield, drawing Alzate out of position and switches it to Jimenez on the left, continuing his run and finishing from the flanker's cross.
Almost a calamity at the back! Brighton can be guilty of overplaying it out of defence and they're almost left with egg on their face as Jota nicks the ball and plays in Jimenez, whose shot rolls wide of the post.
It is interesting that Brighton have had 65 per cent of the ball - and yet only four touches have come in the visitors' penalty area.
Jota is ushered through with the goalkeeper - but Brighton are fortunate and relieved to see the offside flag. The hosts playing a dangerous game at times.
Gross misplaces a pass as Brighton's attack collapses, drawing groans of frustration around the Amex. Wolves' game plan is working well.
Brighton have had more possession but it's Wolves who are looking more dangerous and have created the clearer cut opportunities.
The free-kick isn't Moutinho's best. You can see his intentions as he chips it into the penalty box but it's too close to Ryan who gathers with ease.
Jota slaloms his way through a number of challenges as he drives from deep, eventually winning a free-kick on the left.
Brighton go direct - a long ball is sent from their defence line, searching for the run of Maupay, but he's made his move slightly early and the lineman's flag is up for offside.
Save! It's a really smartly worked corner from Wolves as they knock it short before working it to Jimenez. He lifts a cross to Saiss at the far post whose downward header is pushed clear by Ryan. Great save.
Wolves are slowly growing into the game and now Traore forces a corner for the visitors. Wolves have scored eight goals from set-pieces already this season and Brighton will have their work cut out to defend this one.
So close! Oh my, that would have been spectacular. A really poor defensive header from Alzate falls invitingly for Neves who uses the outside of his boot to bend it towards goal and it is inches wide.
This is Wolves' 29th game of the season - and it's not even Christmas yet! They're clearly dealing with the hectic schedule well, but they have made a slow start to proceedings here at the Amex.
Wide! It's Wolves' turn to threaten. A ball over the top has Jota one-on-one with the full-back on the left, he checks inside and the ball falls to Neves who pulls his volley wide.
Shot! Mooy, who was outstanding in Brighton's victory over Arsenal, has time and space, opting to shoot from distance. He gets little power behind it and Patricio makes a comfortable save.
Close! Dunk climbs highest to meet the resulting corner but gets under it and heads over the bar.
BLOCK! A bright start from Brighton! Trossard tricks his way past his marker at the by-line and lifts a lovely cross into the middle. It falls for Maupay but Jonny makes a crucial block and the hosts have their first corner.
KICK-OFF! Wolves get the ball rolling.
Almost ready for kick-off now at the Amex. It's Brighton versus Wolves in the Premier League, it's live and it's next!
Wolves have lost just twice in the league this season and are unbeaten in their last five Premier League away fixtures, their longest run since a 10-match sequence in 1959.
Brighton are playing a much more attractive brand of football under Potter and it was no surprise the manager signed a new contract recently. He's been a revelation. However, his team seem to have a mental issue with falling behind: they have to win after conceding the opening goal at home, losing 13 times and drawing seven.
Head-to-head stat: Brighton have lost just one of their last 10 games against Wolves, winning four and drawing five.
Nuno Espirito Santo: "I hope the players enjoyed their day off on Thursday. It was well deserved and they needed it. It was important they understand it's a day to rest, recover, stay at home and be with family and join us today to be ready for Sunday."
It's another victory for the Foxes.
Potter: "Anything is possible in this league, that's the way you have to think or else it becomes boring. We have to keep working towards what we're trying to achieve and maintain the spirit around the group."
One change for Brighton today - Aaron Connelly is injured so Leonardo Trossard is handed a starting berth in attack. Wolves are unchanged from their victory over West Ham on Wednesday.
Wolves have qualified from their Europa League group with a game to spare and a 2-0 victory over West Ham on Wednesday night was their third league win in their last four. They haven't lost in the league since September and maximum points today would see them leapfrog Man United into fifth.
Three consecutive defeats threatened to derail Brighton's season but then they produced a performance to remember to topple Arsenal 2-1. It's a result that manager Graham Potter will hope works as a catalyst in their campaign. They're currently four points above the drop zone - but only three points from sixth as well.
