It was a moment of misery for Brendan Rodgers on Wednesday night as he watched his Leicester side surrender their lead against Tottenham in final few seconds, conceding twice in the dying embers. His job will now be get a response from his players when Brighton travel to the King Power this weekend.

The Foxes have often flattered to deceive this term and currently find themselves 10th in the Premier League table, just a place below Brighton, though with two games in hand on the Seagulls. With only four points between the two sides, there is a huge emphasis on this match for both sides.

Graham Potter will be looking to break the glass ceiling with Brighton and under his tenure they have cultivated a reputation as an eye-pleasing side capable of claiming the scalp of any club on their day. Inconsistency has been their issue, but they will be feeling good about themselves after claiming a point off Chelsea last time out.

Leicester vs Brighton: Match Stats

Although Brighton have enhanced their reputation as an aesthetically-pleasing side under Potter, the pretty football belies their grit and tenacity. The Seagulls have actually made more tackles in the Premier League this season than any other team (391), with Marc Cucurella producing the most for Potter’s men (50).

James Maddison will be someone looking to break free from Cucurella’s press. The one-capped England international has been playing like a man possessed in recent outings. He has been directly involved in eight goals across his last seven Premier League games (five goals, three assists). A propensity for a long-ranged screamer, Maddison will no doubt be looking to net one straight out of the top drawer this weekend. He has scored 11 since 2017/18, a tally bettered only by Harry Kane (12), Riyad Mahrez (12), James Ward-Prowse (13) and Kevin De Bruyne (15).
