Seagulls left bewildered
Brighton boss Graham Potter will believe his team are due a change in fortunes after the Seagulls were beaten twice in a row despite mustering a massive 40 shots combined in defeats to Crystal Palace and West Brom.
Albion were completely dominant in their 2-1 reverse against the Eagles, but were hit by two sucker punches either side of the interval, while two missed penalties and a controversially disallowed Lewis Dunk effort resulted in more dropped points in a bizarre game at WBA.
Behind the results, Brighton’s football impressed in both games however, and Albion could prove tricky opponents for an injury-hit Leicester team this weekend.
Leicester starting to wobble
Leicester meanwhile, almost followed up their disappointing loss at home to Arsenal last weekend with another defeat at Burnley on Wednesday, and the Foxes needed a string of top class saves from Kasper Schmeichel and a little help from the woodwork to leave Turf Moor with a point.
City were without a number of key players in Lancashire, including Jonny Evans, Harvey Barnes and James Maddison, and the absence of the latter two in particular had a massive impact on the Foxes’ attacking play.
Goals at both ends on the cards?
Brighton haven’t been able to put finishing touches to the numerous chances they have been creating, though Albion could find joy against a Leicester team that has kept just one clean sheet in their last eight attempts.
The Seagulls have performed well against some of the divisions’ bigger names this season, as evidenced by their recent victories against Tottenham and Liverpool, though forcing a win against a Leicester team unbeaten in nine matches on the road could prove difficult.
Both teams found the net in six of those nine Foxes’ assignments on the road and in each of their last four home and away outings combined, and the same market appeals for Saturday’s game.
