Brighton v Leicester City Match Preview & Trends

Leicester City drew 1-1 against Burnley at Turf Moor in their last Premier League match, and will be hoping to capitalise on Manchester United’s recent dip in form with a pressure-increasing 3 points. Brighton find themselves just three points outside of the relegation zone with 12 matches remaining. Their problems in front of goal will need to be eradicated sooner rather than later if they are to avoid the drop. The Seagulls lost 1-0 in their last Premier League match at The Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion and would welcome an inspired performance against Brendan Rogers’s side. Leicester have the best away form in the league and will aim to extend their current 9-match unbeaten run. Brighton’s lacklustre home form will be severely tested by a Leicester side who have won 64% of their away matches. Graham Potter’s men have an equal 69% in both average scoring and average conceding rates.

Key trends

There is not much separating the respective teams’ averages in this fixture. Brighton goals scored per match at home is 0.92 whilst Leicester City’s goals conceded per match away is 0.86.

Brighton & Hove have picked up an average of 0.77 Points Per Game in their 13 matches played at home 

Leicester City’s average Points Per Game in their 14 away games is 2.21, a massive contributor to their current top-4 position
