Brighton’s unbeaten start came to an abrupt end against Fulham in midweek, despite the Seagulls attempting a second half comeback. Alexis Mac Allister’s second league goal of the season from the penalty spot gave the away side hope, but it was not to be as Fulham held on to take all three points thanks to yet another goal from Aleksandar Mitrovic and an own goal from Lewis Dunk.
Graham Potter’s side had taken 10 points from a possible 12 before their midweek defeat and will be hoping to get back on track against a Leicester side who currently sit bottom of the table.
The Foxes are still without a win in the Premier League in 2022/23 and are on a run of four straight league defeats, which was topped off with a 1-0 defeat to a resurgent Manchester United side on Thursday.
Leicester have struggled defensively in more recent times under Brendan Rodgers, keeping just four clean sheets in their 25 league games in 2022. Something they will be hoping new signing Wout Faes will be able to help with after Wesley Fofana’s move to Chelsea.

Brighton vs Leicester match stats
Pascal Gross has been arguably Brighton’s most important attacking player in the Premier League this season, being directly involved in four of the Seagulls’ six league goals so far in 2022/23 (3 goals, 1 assist). The German has created more chances than any of his teammates (9), had 17 touches in the opposition box, while only Solly March (6) has had more shots on target for Graham Potter’s men than the attacking midfielder (4).
Leicester have scored in nine of their last 10 Premier League games against Sunday’s opponents Brighton, scoring in all five of their away games against the Seagulls. The Foxes have also scored and conceded a goal in 25 of their last 28 Premier League away games, so BTTS backers may be in luck here.
