Brighton and Hove Albion welcome Leicester City to the Amex Stadium on Sunday as they look to keep up their promising start to the Premier League campaign.
Brighton have been hovering around the relegation zone in recent seasons but are keen to put an end to that this term following a bright start as they host Leicester on Saturday.
Graham Potter’s side sit 6th in the Premier League standings having picked up 9 points from the 12 available to them so far this season.
Wins over Burnley, Brentford and Watford have given Albion fans plenty to be optimistic about, but this weekend’s clash with Leicester City is arguably their toughest test yet.
The Foxes have won two and lost two of their opening four outings, with their last Premier League game a narrow loss to champions Manchester City.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are also off the back of a midweek Europa League draw with Serie A side Napoli, with Harvey Barnes and Ayoze Perez the goalscorers for the Foxes.
Perez is still unavailable for Leicester in the Premier League however as he serves the final game of a 3-match suspension for a red card received against West Ham.
Only James Justin and Wesley Fofana remain long-term Leicester absentees, whilst there is concern over the fitness of Jonny Evans who suffered a recurrence of a niggling foot injury against Napoli.
Brighton meanwhile are missing Adam Webster with a thigh injury and Pascal Gross will sit out due to a positive coronavirus test.
Tariq Lamptey won’t be risked by manager Graham Potter as he continues his recovery from injury, whilst Dan Burn, Enock Mwepu and Aaron Connolly are all back in contention.
Brighton v Leicester is a 2pm kick off on Sunday 19th September.
