Leicester are aiming to reach the EFL Cup quarter-finals for the fourth time in five seasons.

Therefore, the Foxes will feel confident against Brighton at the King Power Stadium, where they have lost just once in their last 10 meetings with the Seagulls.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have won each of their last three matches, but come into this tie with just one clean sheet from 12.

That will encourage Brighton who, after a strong start to the season, are looking to end a run of four games without a win.

Although, Saturday’s 4-1 reverse against Manchester City brought a first defeat in seven from Graham Potter’s side.

The Seagulls have only reached the EFL quarter-finals once before (1978-79), but have won both of their previous clashes with Leicester in the competition.
