Leicester Preview – Winning is a habit The Foxes currently lack?

An exquisite finish good enough to win any game. Shame that Watford didn’t read the script. Ben Chilwell’s classy, low-driven effort which nestled into the top corner had the hallmarks of a memorable late winner for Leicester (3rd – W16 D6 L8) at Vicarage Road on Saturday, but it was to be eclipsed moments later by a remarkable equaliser as Brendan Rodgers’ side were forced to settle for a share of the points on their league return.

To concede so late would have been disappointing, however, Leicester didn’t really do enough to deserve all three points and actually finished with the least amount of xG of the sides (WAT 1.65 – 1.01 LEI). Kasper Schmeichal had to be on top form to prevent Watford from scoring earlier in the contest, though The Foxes can take heart from finishing as the stronger of the two teams despite conceding at the death.

The bare statistics, however, are not encouraging. Leicester have now won one of their last six league games (W1 D3 L2) and are still very much indebted to their scintillating form in the early part of the season for keeping them in the top-four. That sole win was at their King Power Stadium though, where Rodgers’ men have lost only three times in the league all season (W9 D3 L3) with two of those occasions to Liverpool and Man City.


Leicester Win & Both To Score



Brighton Preview – Seagulls can head to King Power in confident mood?

In a huge boost to their survival hopes, Brighton (15th – W7 D11 L12) picked up three crucial points with a dramatic late victory over Arsenal on Saturday. Frenchman Neal Maupay playing the role of hero and villain in equal measure, firstly involved in Bernd Leno’s season-ending injury before coolly slotting past his replacement with only second remaining on the clock to seal a 2-1 win down at the Amex.

The Seagulls have now beaten Arsenal home and away this season. More importantly, it lifted Graham Potter’s side five points clear of the bottom three. Even more important was it ended a run of nine successive league games without a win (D6 L3), becoming the last top-flight side to win in 2020. You sense then that a huge weight has been lifted from their shoulders, which should bode well ahead of their remaining games.

According to xG, a draw would have been a fairer result. Not that Brighton will care after being on the end of their fair share of unjust outcomes this season. The challenge now will be sustaining all this positivity and momentum, which won’t be easy at Leicester – a top side and whom they lost 2-0 to in the reverse fixture – especially with their record on the road this season (W2 D5 L8) ranking them only 16th.

Leicester Vs Brighton Betting Advice

Both sides came on strong towards the latter stages of their first matches since the restart. Hopefully that is a sign of things to come here as we should be in for an entertaining affair between two sides who don’t mind getting forward and creating chances. However, that does mean Leicester will appreciate the extra spaces Brighton do invariably leave opponents. That could spell trouble for the visitors, who are winless on the road in seven attempts (D4 L3).

Leicester Vs Brighton – Key Facts

  • Held to a score draw by Watford at the weekend means Leicester have picked up maximum points once across their previous six league games (W1 D3 L2).
  • At the tenth time of trying Brighton would become the last side in the Premier League to win a match in 2020, beating Arsenal 2-1 at home on Saturday.
  • This will be a sixth Premier League meeting between the two, with Leicester unbeaten across the previous five with four wins and a draw.


Having backed goals in this fixture at the Amex earlier in the season only to be disappointed, I am remaining steadfast here. Leicester’s defence has been leaky for a while now, keeping three clean sheets in its previous fifteen league games and only once at home in the last seven, which opens the door for a Brighton side which has netted in ten of fifteen away matches.
