Brighton and Leicester City face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium. When these two teams faced off on January 23rd, the two teams played to a 1-1 draw.
Brighton comes into this game sitting in 4th place in the standings having picked up 10 points. Brighton played a midweek game against Fulham, and the defense didn’t look good in that game, and they were defeated 2-1. Brighton had 61 percent of the possession, and four shots on goal, but it wasn’t enough to secure the victory. Two games ago, against Leeds United, Brighton were able to secure the 1-0 victory. Brighton has scored six goals this season, while their defense has given up three goals. Pascal Groß has scored three goals and added an assist. Jeremy Sarmiento is getting close to coming back from a knee injury, and he might get the start in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City, who sits in 20th place in the standings having picked up one point. Leicester City needs to start winning some games, or they are going to be flirting with the relegation zone the entire season. In the last game against Manchester United, the offense couldn’t get anything going, and they were defeated 1-0. Two games ago against Chelsea they were defeated 2-1. Leicester City’s defense has been an issue, and they have given up 11 goals so far this season. Jamie Vardy struggled in the midweek game, and it wouldn’t be shocking if he moved back to the bench.
Leicester City knows they need to win this game, and they are going to do everything in their power to get it done. I expect Leicester is going to push the numbers forward and that is going to be the difference here and Leicester City is going to get the job done. Leicester City will score at least two goals and secure the victory.
