It is no secret that Brighton & Hove Albion current league position doesn’t accurately reflect their performances on the pitch. Despite xG statistics suggesting Brighton should be fifth in the table, they are struggling near the bottom of the table and are just three points above the relegation zone.
Graham Potter’s side then dominated rivals Crystal Palace and were bitterly disappointed to not pick up points, another performance of that standard should see them pick up three points this weekend.
Meanwhile, Leicester City are dealing with a number of injuries with James Justin, Harvey Barnes and James Maddison all missing out as well as Jonny Evans, who is a doubt. Although the Foxes have the best away record in the league, the aerial presence of Brighton will cause major problems to a Leicester side who have struggled to defend set pieces this season, conceding the fourth-highest number of goals (9) from set pieces.
Brighton go into the game as the favourites and are 8/5 to take all three points on Saturday night.
