The high flying Leicester City will be travelling to the American Express Community Stadium on Saturday
to face-off with Brighton. Leicester is in a bid to retain their second position in the table rankings. This
match is scheduled to kick-off at 16:30 GMT on Saturday 23 rd November 2019.
Brighton is not doing well but is within its expectations. At number 11 of the table standings, they hope
to play well and make the cut above the first half of the premier League table. However, as things stand
for them, this is easier said than done owing to the fact that they are playing against the in-form
Leicester City. Maybe they can shelve the idea till next time.
Just like the 2015/2016 season, the Foxes are having a season to remember. At number 2, they are
doing impressively well beyond expectations. Nevertheless, manager Brendan Rodgers knows well to
warn his boys against complacency. The Foxes are on a 5-match winning streak with no signs of
relenting. Leicester outplayed Arsenal in their last premier league match in a thrilling 2-0 win.
The ever energetic Jamie Vardy is ready to add more goals to his account when he faces Brighton. The
Seagulls experienced all sorts of trouble in their 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
If whatever match they displayed against the out-of-sorts Manchester United is something to go by, then they should expect a rough day when they face Leicester City. With all factors constant, we are tempted to place our money with the Foxes to bite harder.
