  • Competition: English Premier League
  • Date: 21st January 2023
  • Kickoff: 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
  • Venue: King Power Stadium

The fallen foxes from Leicester will take on the high-flying seagulls from Brighton this Saturday in the Premier League. Leicester experienced their worst start to the season since promotion over a decade ago, as the King Power Stadium has seen 12 losses and two draws from 19 games played, that is 14 occasions of dropped points from 19 matchdays. On the other hand, Brighton sits in seventh place, ahead of the likes of Liverpool (who they beat 3-0 last week) and Chelsea, who they had beaten 4-0 earlier this season. This might be Roberto de Zerbi's season as Brighton coach as the highly tactical boss plies his trade against Brendan Rodgers this weekend.

Leicester vs Brighton & Hove Albion Betting Pick #1: BTTS

Brighton have been one of the best sides out of the top four this season, and that justifies their scoring record against 8 of their last 10 opponents now. They have scored in each of the last five meetings against Leicester too, who have responded back with a goal of their own. Considering Leicester have scored in each of the last seven meetings with Brighton now, we are anticipating at least one goal at both ends of the pitch in either half, making BTTS our best pick for this clash, priced at 1.70 odds at the time of writing.

Pick #2: Brighton win or draw

We believe that Brighton are bringing too good a form, for them to lose all three points here. We would have said the same thing even if this was a Leicester side at its prime. But, as the Premier League faithful are aware, the Foxes have been surrounded by their worst campaign in the domestic competition so far in the last decade, and thus, we cannot expect King Power Stadium to be celebrating all three points here. Brighton to win or draw this game.

Leicester Team News

Leicester continues to miss four of their key seven defenders, as Ryan Bertrand (Knee), Ricardo Pereira (Achilles Tendon), Jonny Evans (Muscle) and James Justin (Achilles Tendon) are all out from this game, with expected return dates around mid-February. But what will hurt Brendan Rodgers' morale the most is the absence of James Maddison, as Leicester's player of the season is out with a knee injury till the end of January at least. Youth setup prodigy, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who started the season with some great goal contributions, finds himself unavailable with a knock too.

Players to watch: Harvey Barnes (6 goals), Youri Tielemans (21 chances created this season), Wilfred Ndidi (1.7 interceptions per 90 mins)

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News

Brighton are missing their own main man too, parallel to Leicester ruling out Maddison for this game, as Leandro Trossard continues to remain sidelined with a calf injury. The club statement has put his return date as uncertainty at the moment. Young midfielder Jakub Moder had suffered a cruciate ligament tear at the start of the season too, which has resulted in him missing every game of the season so far. Moder is expected to be back in training by mid-February.
