Brighton & Hove Albion is hosting Leicester City at American Express Community Stadium in round 5 of the English Premier League. Brighton has been doing really well so far this season, and they have won 4 of their last 5 games. Leicester is a good team, but they have been hot and cold so far this season.

Brighton has 3 wins and a draw so far this season, and they are in high 6th place with 9 points. In their last game against Brentford on the road, Brighton was the better team with 59% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Brighton’s good spell has continued here as well, and they have deservedly won this match 0-1. Brighton hasn’t scored a lot of goals so far this season, only 5, and their leading goalscorer is Maupay with 2 goals. Gross has added 2 assists. The injury list is quite long for Brighton, and that makes me wonder how much longer Brighton can keep up this high pace. Overall, a very good start to the season for Brighton, and I don’t think they will have any problems securing their EPL status for next season as well.

As I’ve mentioned, Leicester has been hot and cold so far this season, they have 2 wins and 2 losses in the EPL, and they were facing Napoli in the Europa League earlier this week. Leicester has had a decent game, they have had 46% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 83% of the correct passes. Leicester was leading 2-0 in this game, but they have conceded a red card, and Napoli was able to get back. This game has ended in a 2-2 draw. as far as the EPL goes, Leicester is in 10th place with 6 points, but the worse thing is they haven’t been scoring a lot of goals, only 4 so far. Vardy has scored 2 goals, while Albrighton and Tielemans added 1 goal each. Pereira has added 2 assists. Leicester has had a great last season, and they are a team that has constantly been improving and attracting stronger players to sign with them, but at the moment, they lack consistency, and that is something they need to fix fast.

The trends are on Leicester’s side in this matchup. And Brighton hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Leicester. Brighton might be in better form here, but Leicester has had a solid game against Napoli, and that might give them a nice boost. I’m taking Leicester on the road.
