Brighton to Win

Reason for tip

Leicester have lost four straight Premier League games and they were beaten in eight of their 10 visits to the top 11 last season. Brighton have started out like European contenders and they’ve won three of their last four home league games, so back them to see off the basement side.

Brighton 2-1

Reason for tip

Leicester have scored in all but one of their Premier League clashes with Brighton, but they’ve conceded twice in four of five games this term. The visitors lost 2-1 four times on the road last season, while Brighton have won three of their last four matches.

Brighton vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Brighton have won three of their last four games
  • Leicester have lost four of their first five league games this term
  • The Foxes lost eight of 10 trips to sides placed 11th and up last season
  • Both teams have scored in 25 of Leicester’s last 28 away league matches

Tough test for Leicester

A 1-0 loss to Manchester United on Thursday left Leicester bottom of the Premier League, with just a point to their name after five matches. This weekend’s trip to the Amex is huge for Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers, but they visit a Brighton side who are looking good.

The hosts lost for the first time this season in midweek, but they come into this match having won three of their last four. The Seagulls have started with a solid defensive record while getting the most from their attack, making them worthy favourites against a Leicester side who simply aren’t clicking.

Foxes need fresh faces

Leicester will be glad to have the Wesley Fofana saga behind them, but they received around £70million for the Frenchman and only reinvested £15m of that into the side. They moved for defender Wout Faes from Reims, but more business was needed.

Things look stale at Leicester right now, with the Foxes losing four of their first five league games of the season. They already needed new signings to bridge the gap to the sides around them, having lost eight of 10 trips to the top 11 sides in the league last term.

Brighton to march on

The Seagulls have won three of their last four at home, including victories over Manchester United and West Ham. They’ve taken a real step forward this season and a European push looks to be on the cards, so bottom side Leicester should prove little trouble for the hosts.

Brighton are great value heading into this clash given the issues facing the visitors, so a home win is my first selection in this one.

Leicester have both scored and conceded a goal in 25 of their last 28 Premier League away games, so expect a high-scoring clash this weekend. The Foxes have only failed to score in one of their 10 Premier League meetings with Brighton, finding the net in all five away from home against the Seagulls. With Brighton looking like worthy favourites, a 2-1 home win is my correct score prediction.
