When Graham Potter left Brighton for Chelsea in September, some were slightly worried about how his departure might impact the Seagulls. But in fact they needn’t worry at all, with Roberto De Zerbi’s arrival lifting Brighton up the table, leaving Potter well in the past.

As Brighton reach the halfway point of their season, the Seagulls are seventh, eight points behind fourth-placed Newcastle United but do have a game in hand over the Magpies. They are also involved in what is turning out to be a pretty close fight for the top six which will also include Liverpool and Chelsea. Brighton go into this game off the back of two wins, beating Everton and Liverpool 4-1 and 3-0 respectively.

Things aren’t so good for Leicester. The Foxes are just two points clear of the relegation zone every passing defeat looks as though it could be Brendan Rodgers’ last in the Leicester dugout. After a mini-revival had lifted them up, following a bad start, Leicester have now lost their past four Premier League games – truly left cursing the World Cup break.

Newcastle, Liverpool, Fulham and Nottingham Forest have taken all three points against Leicester since the Premier League’s return, giving the Foxes the longest active losing streak in the top flight. Things don’t get any easier for Leicester either, with Tottenham, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea all coming up in their six matches after the visit of Brighton.
