Brighton vs Leicester: Predictions
Despite creating a host of chances, Brighton are without a win in their last five matches across all competitions since beating Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield, while the Seagulls have scored just two goals during that time. Graham Potter’s men are easy on the eye and play some extremely attractive football, but are struggling to put the ball in the net, and that is why they’re still only three points clear of the relegation zone following a 1-0 defeat to West Brom last time out.
But Leicester are in equally poor form, winning just one of their last five matches across all competitions in a run which has seen them exit the Europa League, while also seeing the gap between themselves and Chelsea in fifth cut to six points with the Blues holding a game in hand. That said, Brendan Rodgers’ men did beat Brighton 1-0 in the FA Cup just last month and are unbeaten against the Seagulls in their last eight meetings, dating back to April 2014.
