Leicester City vs Brighton Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

The Foxes have struggled in the final third in recent weeks and our tipster is backing a tight game when they host Brighton's strong defence on Sunday

Leicester City will be looking to build on last week’s dramatic win when they welcome Brighton to the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

A late strike from Jamie Vardy gave the Foxes a 2-1 win at Sheffield United last Sunday, ending a two-game losing streak and keeping his side in the top four.

Leicester City vs Brighton Team News

Cengiz Under and Harvey Barnes both staked a claim to start after netting in Leicester’s win over AEK Athens in midweek. Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu and Daniel Amartey are all out whilst James Maddison and Timothy Castagne face fitness tests.

Adam Lallana, Christian Walton, Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone, Davy Propper and Alexis Mac Allister are all missing for Graham Potter, although the latter pair are both close to fitness.

Leicester City vs Brighton Preview

Vardy’s goal against the Blades last weekend may have handed the Foxes all three points, but it was certainly not a convincing performance by the 2015-16 Premier League champions.

Despite boasting 71 per cent possession Leicester managed only four shots on target, taking their tally to 14 across the last four games – a figure better than only five other teams.

One of the sides with fewer than 14 in that time is Brighton, with the Seagulls also facing the fourth-fewest shots on target, both big reasons why they have scored a total of four and conceded the same amount across their last four fixtures.

Leicester City vs Brighton Tips and Predictions

Leicester’s attacking struggles of late could continue against a strong Brighton defence and the 10/11 (1.91) on under 2.5 goals from bet365 offers punters good value for this Premier League clash.
