This Sunday sees Brighton go head to head with Leicester at the Amex Stadium – Kick-off 2:00pm GMT.

Leicester, currently sitting in twentieth place, face the formidable task of an away trip to Brighton, who currently sit fourth in the League.

Brighton & Hove Albion arrive at this game, having secured 10 points so far this season

Following two straight wins for Brighton in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

Also, Brighton keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last five meetings is astonishing this season, which is responsible for their Champion’s League qualification position. Now they have 3 matches won, 1 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fourth place, with a total of 10 points having won three matches, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Brighton have won one game and drawn one game of their two League matches at home this season.

A victory for Brighton & Hove Albion would put them on 13 points.

A solid defensive team

Defence begins with attack and Brighton have defended well as a team, borne out by conceding three goals in their previous matches. Every player has contributed to them delivering a solid defensive display this Premier League season. The number of goals that a team scores can sometimes give a misleading impression of performance. Brighton have found the net six times (4 from open play and two penalties), but their performance at times this season has been average. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Alexis MacAllister (3), Pascal Gross (3), and Lewis Dunk (1).

Brighton are likely to be missing three of their key players when they start Sunday’s game, due to injury and illness.

Leicester will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to Manchester United at King Power Stadium. Brendan Rodgers’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

Also, with relegation a real prospect for Leicester, Brendan Rodgers must stop the poor run of form that has produced four losses in four matches. They currently stand twentieth in the League, with one point for a total of 0 wins, 4 losses and 1 draws having drawn one game and lost four games.

Leicester have lost two meetings of their two League matches on the road this season.

A win in this fixture would take Leicester City’s points to 4 in the League.

Leicester’s squad has depth, but even so, Brendan Rodgers is likely to be missing three of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
