Brighton vs. Leicester: Prediction, Team News, Lineups

In the Premier League match that will take place on Sunday at the Amex Stadium, both Brighton & Hove Albion and Leicester City will be seeking to get back on track after suffering losses in the league during the previous week.

The previous time out, the Seagulls were defeated by the newly promoted Fulham team by a score of 2-1, and there is rising unhappiness around the King Power after the visitors were defeated by Manchester United by a score of 1-0.

Match Preview – Brighton vs. Leicester

Brighton’s summer transfer activity was certainly highlighted by the departures of two integral cogs in the form of Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma; however, Graham Potter’s side made a bright start to another top-flight season before a trip to Craven Cottage befell them. Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma left the club over the summer.

When Aleksandar Mitrovic and an own goal from Lewis Dunk placed Fulham in the driver’s seat, Brighton made a comeback after Alexis Mac Allister scored on the penalty kick, but in the end, the Seagulls suffered their first loss of the new season. Fulham is now unbeaten in the Premier League.

Nevertheless, Brighton has made an early drive for the Champions League berths thanks to a 10-point haul from the initial 15 on offer. The South Coast squad is in the top four at the time of writing having surrendered a league-low three goals thus far.

Even though they let go of a few players who appeared to be irreplaceable, Brighton has been able to maintain a consistent formula for success by keeping the highly-coveted Potter in the hot seat. On the day of the transfer deadline, Brighton was active in the transfer market and acquired Billy Gilmour from Chelsea in a deal worth nine million pounds.

Now that they have returned to the familiar surroundings of the Amex, Brighton has yet to allow a goal to be scored against them in the Premier League while playing at home this season.

Additionally, Brighton has now gone unbeaten in six top-flight games while playing at their headquarters, which is not a good sign for a Leicester team that is struggling.

Match Prediction – Brighton vs. Leicester

It is impossible to overstate the amount of pressure that is being placed on Leicester to perform well on the field after they were unable to do so during the summer transfer window; nevertheless, their recent record against Brighton may at least help to enhance the confidence of the traveling supporters.

The loss to Fulham may have shaken up Potter’s squad somewhat, and an altered Foxes attacking line is more than capable of earning the winless visitors a point on the South Coast. Although Brighton is as resilient as ever when playing at home, the loss to Fulham may have rocked Potter’s squad. Let’s check the possible lineup for both teams.

Brighton & Hove Albion Possible Starting Lineup: Sanchez, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, March, Caicedo, Gross, Estupinan, Trossard, Mac Allister, Welbeck

Leicester City Possible Starting Lineup: Ward, Justin, Faes, Evans, Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Maddison, Daka, Barnes
