Graham Potter has (deservedly) won plenty of plaudits this season. His Brighton side play lovely, attractive football and with very few resources, at least when compared to most of the Premier League, has produced a team that more often than not can go toe-to-toe with any side.
There is one slight problem, however. That is that for all their pretty-on-the-eye play they don’t score that many goals and don’t win that many games. Yes, they’re delightful to watch and play in the ‘proper’ way but they are in a relegation dogfight.
The south coast side are without a win in four matches and, only three points ahead of Fulham, need a win to stave of worries about falling through the dreaded trapdoor.
Facing a a Leicester side that possesses the best away record in the division isn’t the ideal match for Brighton. Not least because without a win in two matches and keen to maintain their charge for Champions League football, the visitors are in need of the three points as well.
Stay here for the team news and to find out whether those expected goals turn into some much-needed actual goals for Brighton.
