Having to settle for a dramatic late point at Watford on their return to action over the weekend, Leicester will be hoping to strengthen their position in the top-four when they welcome Brighton the King Power on Tuesday evening.
Although the Foxes might be sat in pole position to secure a Champions League return, they have shown some cause for concern either side of the break after winning just one of their last six Premier League appearances.
On the flip side, coming from behind in shocking fashion to secure what could be a crucial 2-1 win against Arsenal at the Amex, Brighton couldn’t have wished for a better return.
However, while the Seagulls may have managed to move in further from the bottom-three, Tuesday’s guests do hold a worrying record against the Champions League chasers.
Hit with a 2-0 defeat when they last faced off against Leicester earlier in the season, the Foxes have won four of their last five meetings against Brighton, including back-to-back wins. You might be interested to know that another home victory in midweek can be found priced at 7/10 with Bet365.
The Foxes starting to stall?
Devastated to have seen Ben Chillwell’s stunning late strike ruled out at relegation scrappers Watford on their return to action over the weekend, Brendan Rodgers will be desperate for his side to find a much-needed bounce.
Despite entering the enforced break with a 4-0 win against Aston Villa, the one-time Liverpool boss has seen his side secure just a pair of Premier League victories since New Year’s Day.
While the Foxes may have been glad to see Golden Boot leader Jamie Vardy return on Saturday lunchtime, Leicester had previously begun to show some inconsistencies in the final third.
Including drawing a blank in three consecutive matchups back in February, Tuesday’s hosts have managed to bag more than a single strike in just one of their last five top-flight outings.
You might be interested to know that Rodgers’ side can be found priced at 11/10 with William Hill to once again bag under 1.5 goals at the King Power in midweek.
Elsewhere, after impressing in a cameo appearance at Watford over the weekend, Demarai Gray will be pushing for a start on Tuesday evening.
Brighton show their fight
Shocking almost everyone across the Premier League after mounting a dramatic late comeback on Saturday afternoon, Brighton will be desperate to build off of that result.
Simply looking to strengthen their position over the drop zone, Head Coach Graham Potter saw his side land just their first victory since opening 2020 over the weekend.
However, if Brighton are to land back-to-back wins for the first time since the start of November, then the Seagulls will have to make some drastic alterations on the road.
Remarkably, Tuesday’s guests have managed to land just a single Premier League win away from the South Coast since the opening weekend.
If Brighton are to move one step closer to extending their Premier League status, Potter will be hoping for leading marksman Neal Maupay to lead their charge at the King Power.
Bagging that late winner against the Gunners last time out, the former Brentford striker has now found the net in two of his last four top-flight starts either side of the interruption.
Cruising towards Brighton’s Golden Boot this season, you might be interested to know that Maupay can be found priced at 9/4 with Paddy Power to bag back-to-back strikes on Tuesday.
