Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion team news.
Neither side has any fresh injury concerns following their return to Premier League action at the weekend, but both Brendan Rodgers and Graham Potter will be tempted to rotate their squads given the demanding fixture schedule.
Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion head-to-head.
Brighton are yet to register a Premier League win at the King Power Stadium, and have to go back to a 2014 Championship win to find their last win in Leicester, when Jesse Lingard, Stephen Ward and a Leonardo Ulloa double contributed to a 4-1 over the Foxes.
Leicester City have won four of their five Premier League matches against the Seagulls.
Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion current form.
Brighton secured their first win of 2020 with their 2-1 win over Arsenal at the weekend, and you have to go back to early December to find their most recent away win, when they beat the Gunners by the same scoreline at the Emirates.
Leicester City have won just one of their last six Premier League games, and were frustrated when conceding a late goal to fall to a 1-1 draw at Watford a few days ago. However, 38 of their 54 points this season have come against sides in the bottom half of the table.
Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion match prediction.
Brighton are winless in their last seven away games and have only registered two wins on the road all season. The Seagulls have taken just one of the last 30 points available to them away to sides in the top four and they have won just one of their last 11 midweek fixtures, but they have drawn each of their last three games away from the Amex. Given Leicester’s indifferent current form, this could be another stalemate. 1-1 is the prediction, and it can be backed at 21/4 with SportPesa.
Best bet for Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion.
With 19 goals in 27 Premier League appearances, Jamie Vardy is the league’s top goalscorer this season. The former England international has scored in each of his last four games against Brighton. The 5/6 for Vardy to score at any time seems generous, but with just eight of his 19 goals being the first scored in that match, it may be worth going for the larger 12/5 price for Vardy to score the last goal here.
