Brighton vs Leicester is billed to be one of the most intriguing fixtures of the round, with the Seagulls currently holding slight favouritism despite never besting the Foxes in the PL.

Graham Potter’s side has gotten off to their best-ever start to a Premier League campaign, claiming three wins across their opening four fixtures, though impressive on the surface, the Seagulls have been dealt an extremely favourable hand, facing two of the three newly-promoted outfits along with the soon to be relegated Clarets.

Alternatively, the Foxes are 2-2 this season after narrowly losing out to the Sky Blues 1-0 last weekend.

Brighton is winnerless across all eight previous meetings with Leicester in the top-flight (6L,2D), with their last victory against the Foxes coming in the Championship back in 2014!

Though history may be on their side, the Foxes have looked less than convincing over the past month, poor form coupled with a Europa League fixture two days prior to this match has me steering clear of the H2H market.

Verdict

Both teams NOT to score has hit in four of the previous five meetings between this pair, while the same market has gone off in Brighton’s last four fixtures.
