Brighton v Leicester: match preview

·1 min read

Brighton are flying and that is largely due to their rock solid defence, seemingly not missing Ben White in the slightest. A tricky task is in store for Leicester, then, considering they have been uncharacteristically goal-shy so far. Brendan Rodgers’s side will surely be desperate to get firing again, too, after surrendering a two-goal lead to draw with Napoli on Thursday. The form book smiles on Leicester, though, beating Brighton six times and drawing twice in their eight Premier League meetings. Graham Searles
