Brighton are looking to break the glass ceiling in the Premier League and reach a European competition for the first time in their history, but on Tuesday their ambitions extend to the FA Cup as Roberto De Zerbi travels with his high-flying Seagulls to the bet365 Stadium for a fifth-round showdown against Stoke.

The South Coast club made headlines in the League Cup earlier this season after they eliminated Arsenal, and De Zerbi has replicated that giantkilling in this competition. After thrashing Middlesbrough 5-1 in the third round, they sent Liverpool packing last time out, triumping 2-1 with a 92nd-minute Kaoru Mitoma winner.

Alex Neil’s men are struggling to build consistency in the Championship, but he will be relishing this free hit against Premier League opposition. The Potters took down Hartlepool United in the third round, before cruising past Stevenage 3-1, setting up this tie against the top-flight club.

Stoke City vs Brighton match stats

Kaoru Mitoma has risen to meteoric prominence this season, and it was the Japan international’s late goal at the Amex that sent Liverpool home in the fourth round. The tricky midfield gem has netted seven goals this campaign, more than any other Brighton player across all competitions. He is also the only Brighton player to score in every competition they have competed in this campaign: the Premier League, League Cup and FA Cup.

You would have to go back to the last time Stoke were in the Premier League in 2017/18 for when they sides tussled previously. They played out two draws in either fixtures that campaign, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Kurt Zouma scoring for Stoke in the 2-2 at Brighton, before Xherdan Shaqiri netted in the home fixture, showing the scope of the quality that had in that relegation season.
