Brighton will look to return to winning ways when they welcome Leicester City to Amex Stadium this Sunday.

The hosts tasted their first defeat of the season in midweek when they were beaten 2-1 by Fulham. The loss ended a run of nine games without defeat in the league.

It also ended a run of three consecutive clean sheets for Graham Potter’s side, who had conceded only one goal before travelling to Craven Cottage. 

They will now return to the AMEX where they are unbeaten in their last six league games, looking to continue their surprise push for a place in the top six this season. Having beaten the Foxes in their last meeting on this ground, they will go into this tie confident of getting a positive result.

Possible Brighton starting line-up

Robert Sanchez; Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster, Pervis Estupinan; Solly March, Moises Caicedo, Alexis Mac Allister, Leandro Trossard; Pascal Groß, Danny Welbeck.

Injured: Jakub Moder, Jeremy Sarmiento, Adam Lallana

Doubtful: None  

Suspended: None 

Leicester City

Things continued for the worse for Leicester and Brendan Rodgers as they were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United last Thursday.

In a must-win game for Rodgers at Old Trafford, his men could not make their possession count for three points, with a first-half strike from Jadon Sancho the difference in a night of few chances. 

The Foxes are on a terrible run of form this season having taken only one point from the 15 available this season (D1, L4), leaving them at the bottom of the table.

Their struggles has been made even worse given that they have failed to make any meaningful signing this summer, while their most important defender Wesley Fofana joined Chelsea on the last day of the transfer window. And so, they come into this game desperate for a win that will rekindle a faltering season and restore some hope in a fan base that has been enduring their failures for more than one season now. 

Possible Leicester City starting line-up

Danny Ward; Luke Thomas, Jonny Evans, Daniel Amartey, James Justin; Wilfred Ndidi; Youri Tielemans, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, James Maddison, Harvey Barnes; Jamie Vardy.

Injured: Ricardo Pereira, Ryan Bertrand

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None
