Best value single: Yves Bissouma to be booked @2/1

Combative midfielder Yves Bissouma has been throwing his weight around to good effect for the Seagulls this season, though the talented anchorman has a habit of tackling his way into trouble with the officials.

The 24-year-old has already served two suspensions this term for his one red and six yellow cards for Albion, and Bissouma might challenge his way into caution territory again when trying to keep tabs on Leicester’s gifted forwards.
