Brighton vs Leicester City
KICK OFF: Saturday 24th Nov 2018 | 16:00 CET
PREMIER LEAGUE: Matchday 13 | Falmer Stadium, Brighton
Will Maguire’s Absence Be Cities Downfall?
Brighton welcome Leicester City in this mid-table clash. Over the years, this fixture has been an even affair. However, Leicester have a better record in the Premier League, with two wins from two meetings, 2-0 & 0-2, giving them the edge overall.
The home side will be without Dale Stephens after he received a straight red in the Seagulls last game. Other than that, Chris Houghton has almost a full-strength squad at his disposal. Three points will be vital to the Seagulls as they hope to close the gap on the top half of the table.
Leicester will be looking to put the recent tragedy that hit the club behind them, to concentrate on football and deliver the results that the much loved Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha would have wanted. The Foxes will be without both James Maddison & Daniel Amartey (out for the season), but their most significant loss will be the superb Harry Maguire, who is out with a knee injury.
Result Prediction: Brighton Win
Score Prediction: 1-0
