Betting prediction: Leicester City 1-0 Brighton

Advertisement

Leicester have had Brighton’s number since the two began locking-horns in the Premier League back in 2017-18. The Foxes boast a 5-2-0 record against the Seagulls over the four-year period, having allowed just two goals in the process. Brighton’s current form cannot be discounted, and it’s unclear if Jamie Vardy – should he feature – will hit the ground running on his return, but Leicester should have enough to see-off Graham Potter’s signs of life.

Result/Both Teams to score: Leicester – No

Brighton have failed to score against Leicester in their last three matchups. Brighton will make it as difficult as possible for the Foxes and will surely threaten at times, but Leicester’s back-line should hold up long enough for a goal or two to be crafted at the other end.

Winning Margin: Leicester +1

Leicester have managed just eight goals in their last six Premier League fixtures, though the absence of Jamie Vardy was never going to be an easy road to navigate. With the uncertainty of whether or not the England international will start and what sort of influence he will have after coming off injury, this is likely to be a close one; even if Vardy is at his best.

Leicester City vs Brighton: Match preview

One win in four in the Premier League is not the best recent form for Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City, but the Foxes will undoubtedly be bolstered by the return of Jamie Vardy to first-team duties after he came on as a second-half sub against Wolves at the weekend. But despite some recent setbacks in the league, it’s been an overall superb season for the King Power Stadium outfit, who currently sit in a coveted Champions League place and looking down the table at the likes of more traditional powers Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal.

The road to a top four finish is a minefield of one pitfall after the next, but it is a testament to their overall ability as a cohesive collective that got them through a period without one of the best centre-forwards in England. It is more important to remember that success can be garnered on many fronts. While Leicester all – likely – all but out of contention to seriously have any chance of sneaking a second Premier League trophy, their form in the Europa League and FA Cup offer-up just rewards for a talented collection of players.

With wins in the third and fourth rounds against Stoke City (4-0) and a considerable opponent in Brentford (3-1), the Foxes look to keep pushing for honours on the home-front against a Brighton side who have enjoyed something of a purple patch in recent weeks. Leicester have not lost to Brighton since 2013-14, however, when the pair were both down in the Championship. Rodgers will surely fancy his chances at keeping his Foxes alive on all remaining trophy fronts.

Deep FA Cup run something to smile about in a tricky season for Brighton

We have seen something similar before in domestic cup competition in England in recent memory. The 2013 FA Cup Final win by Wigan Athletic, despite being the only club to win the historic trophy while failing to avoid relegation, stands as a testament to what can be achieved even by the most unlikely of options.

Th0ugh not currently threatened directly with the prospect of relegation, it could all be a very different story for Brighton on the south coast if the Seagulls did not hit a recent rich vein of form that has seen them post a 3-2-0 record in their last five Premier League outings. Far more representative of what a Graham Potter-side is capable of putting on display (think back to his achievements with Allsvenskan club Östersunds FK), things are seemingly coming together at the right time and at the right place at the Amex stadium.

Three-point collections against Leeds, Liverpool, and Tottenham is proof-positive that they’re not only capable of beating better opposition on their day, but that they are a side that are capable of putting together a deep FA Cup run despite their current league standing.

Talent is still on offer at the Amex, and Brighton are capable of playing a brand of football that is so much more than just hoof it and hope. But on the flip side, the inability to grind out results against opposition of a similar make and/or model can be a major source of frustration; their ten draws in the league speak to this. Coming to grips with Leicester could be a blessing in disguise for Brighton, where they are not the one being asked most of the questions. Another FA Cup upset is certainly possible.


 

Leicester City team news vs Brighton

The list of Leicester players remains the same for Brendan Rodgers, with Dennis Praet, Wes Morgan, and Wesley Fofana all still unavailable.

Jamie Vardy made his return for the Foxes in their 0-0 draw at the weekend against Wolves, and could be in-line to start.

Timothy Castagne and Wilfried Ndidi did not feature against Wolves, nor were they on the bench. They could make their return here, but also could be rested for the weekend fixture against Liverpool.

 

Brighton team news vs Leicester City

Danny Welbeck, Alexis Mac Allister, and Joël Veltman all made returns and featured against Burnley, giving Graham Potter desperately needed options to play with.

Brighton is still without José Izquierdo, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Florin Andone, Tariq Lamptey, and Solly March, however. Izquierdo may be fit enough in time for a substitute appearance.

Adam Webster suffered a rolled ankle in their weekend draw with Burnley and is a doubt for the Foxes clash.

Davy Pröpper missed the draw against Burnley with a groin issue and could also miss the FA Cup tie.
