Leicester vs Brighton Preview: Mac Allister and Propper Return for Tricky Albion Fixture

0

Brighton have a tough trip away to face Leicester on Sunday, as they look to record back-to-back away victories in the Premier League.

Leicester are unbeaten in all six of their Premier League meetings with Brighton (W4, D2), keeping a clean sheet in four of those matches.

Brighton have only recorded one victory in their last eight away games against the Foxes in all competitions. Their one win came back in April 2014 when Leicester had already gained promotion from the Championship.

Team News

Alexis Mac Alister and Davy Propper returned to full training this week and should feature.

Adam Lallana is still out with a groin injury that he picked up against Liverpool.

Leicester’s James Maddison is fit despite missing Thursday’s win against AEK Athens with a minor knee problem.

Defenders Timothy Castagne and Caglar Soyuncu are back in training but both are more likely to be involved in Wednesday’s match against Everton.

Prediction

Leicester and Brighton are two teams that have been struggling for home form. Brighton are yet to register a home league win this season.

The Foxes have lost four of their past six league matches at the King Power Stadium, as many defeats as they suffered in their first 23 top-flight home games under Brendan Rodgers.

Brighton have only won two of their opening 11 league matches, their joint-lowest total at this stage of a top-flight campaign.

The Seagulls last match against Southampton summed up their performances this season. They played good football, created good chances but still lost. Leicester have been far more consistent this campaign and their attacking threat should be too much for Brighton.

My Prediction: Leicester 2-1 Brighton
