Leicester City welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening in the Premier League.

The Foxes still have designs on a top four finish, going in to the fixture in 3rd position and with an 8 point cushion over 5th placed Manchester United.

8 points would appear to be a comfortable gap, but Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers’ will no doubt want to increase that margin after what some would say was 2 dropped points against Watford in their last outing.

For Brighton, they’ll be buoyant after a last-gasp win over Arsenal at the weekend – Neal Maupay’s late strike earning them all 3 points against the Gunners.

Despite being in 15th place and 5 points clear of the relegation zone, Seagulls boss Graham Potter won’t want to be sucked back in to an end-of-season dogfight.

Leicester City’s Ayoze Perez is pushing for a starting berth after only featuring on the bench against Watford – the striker is rated 50-50 to feature from the beginning.

Dennis Praet has been nursing a calf issue in recent days, and he too is touch and go for the Foxes.

A big blow for Brendan Rodgers will be the absence of Ricardo Pereira, with the impressive full back out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury.

For Brighton, Aaron Mooy is expected to miss out after sustaining an ankle injury against Arsenal – the Australian withdrawn at half time in that game.

Otherwise it’s a clean bill of health for Graham Potter, who is expected to field a similar side to the one who beat the Gunners last time out.

Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion at the King Power Stadium is a 6pm kick off on Tuesday, June 23.
