Brighton and Hove Albion will host Leicester City at Amex Stadium on Saturday. Both sides come into the game following FA Cup exits, before the international break.
In the league, the Seagulls have lifted themselves away from the relegation zone and it appears that they will survive their baptism in Premier League.
In their last league game, Brighton lost 2-0 at Everton, but prior to that result, they were undefeated in five games. This run of five games produced 11 points and enabled the Seagulls to move into the 12th spot with 34 points. As thigs stand, they are six points clear of the relegation zone.
The Foxes put an end to a winless run of five league games with a 4-1 win at West Bromwich Albion in their last league game. As things stand, they are placed in the eighth spot with 40 points.
There has been an obvious drop in Leicester’s form following the January window, and it would take a real effort from the Foxes to get anything out of this game.
Earlier this season, Leicester claimed a 2-0 win over Brighton at King Power Stadium.
