Leicester City vs Brighton Match Analysis and Prediction

Leicester City hopes to head into the festive season in the top four in the Premier League starting this weekend. The side will welcome Brighton at the King Power Stadium for matchday 11. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 10:15 pm.

The Seagulls head into the King Power Stadium sitting 16th on the table, with four points off the relegation battle zone.

Brendan Rodgers had to contend with an injury crisis and a heavy schedule since the beginning of the season. It was no surprise that the side dropped their standards as the season went after the November International break.

However, recording wins against Sheffield United and AEK Athens seem to kickback their mojo at a crucial part of the season. In case the side managed to suffer another defeat, the side could be battling at seventh.

The Foxes will continue to heavily rely on Jamie Vardy, who has nine goals for top-flight this season. The hectic schedule allowed newcomer to give summer arrival Cengiz Under a chance to impress on the domestic scene.

On the other hand, Brighton had to blame a late VAR decision that went against them during their latter stage against Southampton. A Danny Ings penalty condemned the seagulls to their first defeat in four games, keeping Graham Potter’s side wary of relegation battles. The thriving of Danny Welbeck has been a major push.
