Leicester City play host to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Tuesday evening looking to respond from the disappointment of only registering a 1-1 draw at Watford on Saturday.

Leicester vs Brighton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 0-2 win for the Foxes on the road.
- The Foxes have scored two or more goals in four of the past five encounters.
- It’s been six years since the Seagulls have won against this rival.
- Eight of the past ten wins had gone to the Foxes.
- The Foxes have a 100% unbeaten record in Premier League fixtures, and it would have been a 100% winning record if not for a single draw.
Leicester vs Brighton: Prediction
The games will be coming thick and fast for these two clubs after the break, and with match sharpness an issue, it is unrealistic to expect all players to hit their straps quickly. With both teams solid at the back, however, we can expect to see a tight affair here in a game that Brighton will be desperate not to lose.
Leicester vs Brighton: Team News
Having been introduced as substitutes against Watford, Demarai Gray and Kelechi Iheanacho are pushing for starting roles on Tuesday night. Ayoze Perez, who did not get on the pitch versus the Hornets, and Dennis Praet, after recovering from a calf injury, are also options for Rodgers. However, Ricardo Pereira has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury. Solly March could be brought into the Brighton side after Aaron Mooy sustained an ankle injury against the Gunners, resulting in his half-time withdrawal. Unless Potter decides to freshen up his team after the relatively-short turnaround, the rest of the starting lineup may remain the same.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Justin, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi, Tielemans, Maddison; Gray, Iheanacho, Vardy
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Ryan, Schelotto; Webster, Dunk, Burn; Propper, Bissouma; Gross, Trossard, March; Maupay
