Brighton vs Leicester
English Premier League
Date: Sunday 19th September 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).
Brighton have started the new Premier League season in terrific form and have won 3 of their last 4 games not many people would have expected this start from the club.
Last weekend Graham Potter’s side beat Brentford, away from home, 1-0. The clubs only loss so far came against Everton and with 9 points Brighton are only 1 point from being in 1st place.
Leicester lost 1-0 at home to Manchester City last weekend and that was their 2nd defeat of the season. The Foxes have had a so so start to the season and are in 9th place. Though a win here would mean they would join Brighton on the same points and would feel they are getting back to their best.
Leicester’s last away game ended with a 2-1 victory over Norwich although they have lost 4-1 on the road against West Ham earlier in the season.
Brighton vs Leicester: Head to Head
- Last season Leicester won this fixture 2-1.
- Leicester have won the last 3 meetings against Brighton in a row.
- We would have to go back 11 games until the last time Brighton beat Leicester going back to 2014 when they won 4-1 in a Championship game.
Brighton vs Leicester: Prediction
This game is set to be very open and both sides will feel they have equal chances to win the game. Everton was a stern test for Brighton when they were at home and they failed that and let’s be honest Leicester will be even tougher.
You get the feeling that the Foxes are still finding their way in the new season and this is why we believe that there will be plenty of chances for both teams.
But Leicester have a great record over Brighton and we believe that they will be able to continue that good run.
