Brighton v Leicester
Published: Saturday, 6th March 2021 at 6:45 pm

Leicester will hope to bypass lowly Brighton and pick up three more valuable points on Saturday, as they battle for a top-four finish this season.


The Foxes are on course to grab a Champions League spot at the end of the campaign, with just 11 Premier League fixtures remaining between now and May.

Brendan Rodgers’ men beat Brighton 3-0 with ease when these sides met in December, and the boss will be eyeing another comfortable victory to calm the nerves following this week's draw at Burnley. 

However, Brighton aren’t expected to completely roll over on Saturday. After all, they are nervously looking over their shoulder at a resurgent Fulham, who are threatening to escape the relegation zone.

Whether Graham Potter’s men can eke out a draw here remains to be seen, but even a point would be welcome on the south coast if they can hold Leicester at bay. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Brighton v Leicester on TV and online.

Brighton v Leicester team news

Brighton: Manager Potter will hope to have Tariq Lamptey available for selection on Saturday, although there is concern this game might come a few days too soon for the 20-year-old.

Leicester: James Maddison and Harvey Barnes remain sidelined for Leicester, while Ayoze Perez and Dennis Praet are still a week away from recovering from injury.

Our prediction: Brighton v Leicester

Brighton have had a week to prepare for this clash and face a Leicester side without the frightening Maddison and Barnes in attack.

However, even with a blunted forward line the Foxes should claim a win here, with Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho taking the offensive lead.

Brighton’s defence should hold up for much of the game, but Leicester’s quality is likely to shine through in the end.

Our prediction: Brighton 1-2 Leicester (10/1 at bet365)
