Hoping to carry on from the international break where they left off earlier in the month, a high-flying Leicester will look to extend their buffer in the top-four when they make the trip to Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
Bagging a 2-0 win over Arsenal a fortnight ago, the Foxes remain on a five-match winning run across all competitions and the mood in their camp only continues to soar at the King Power.
On the flip side, after suffering a 3-1 defeat away at Old Trafford prior to the break, Brighton are still struggling with their consistency and there is no doubt that the Graham Potter will be glad to make a return to the South Coast this weekend.
While the Seagulls may have landed three straight victories at the Amex, they did suffer a 2-1 defeat when they faced off against Leicester in February and they have not picked up a Premier League victory over the Foxes since making their top-flight return back in 2017.
You might be interested to know that Saturday’s guests can be found at 21/20 with Ladbrokes to leave to South Coast with all three points this weekend.
Brighton flying high at the Amex
Although many would have felt that their 3-1 defeat away at Manchester United would have dampened the mood around the Amex, Brighton have made a string of improvements since bringing in Graham Potter over the summer.
Opening the weekend with just their goal difference keeping them outside the top half of the standings, there is no doubt that the former Swansea boss will be most impressed by his side’s continued success on home soil.
Picking up a 2-0 win over Norwich in their last matchup on home soil, the Seagulls have won three straight on the South Coast, including victories over Everton and a thumping 3-0 win over Tottenham last month.
You might be interested to know that Brighton can be found at 11/4 with Betfair to extend that winning run on Saturday.
However, ahead of Saturday’s matchup, Potter has been hit with a major double injury headache.
Missing both matches for Belgium in their final two qualifying contests, winger Leandro Trossard is set to miss this weekend’s fixture along with another winger in Aaron Connolly who also had to withdraw from international duty.
Jamie Vardy’s having a party
Putting in yet another rampant display and snatching a 2-0 win off of Arsenal prior to the international break, Leicester have continued to take the Premier League by storm this season.
Losing just a pair of their opening 12 top-flight appearances and opening the weekend sat only behind league leaders Liverpool, the mood in Brendan Rodgers’ camp remains at a high.
You might be interested to know that the Foxes are already priced as low as 4/7 with 888sport to land a top-four finish this season, ahead of the likes of Tottenham, Manchester United, and Arsenal.
One man who has continued to spearhead Leicester’s stellar run has been leading marksman and attacking talisman, Jamie Vardy.
Once again finding the net against the Gunners a fortnight ago and heavily linked with an England return, the 32-year-old already has 11 Premier League strikes this season.
Leading the race for the Golden Boot and finding the net in each of his last four matches on the spin, Vardy can be found pencilled in at 21/20 with William Hill to extend on his glittering purple patch this weekend.
