Leicester City and Brighton face off on Sunday in the third meeting between the two clubs this season.

Brighton beat Leicester City 2-1 in their clash in the English Premier League in September. Neal Maupay and Danny Welbeck gave the Seagulls a 2-0 advantage before Jamie Vardy fired for the Foxes.

The two teams met again in the Carabao Cup in October where Leicester won via penalty shoot-out after the game ended in a 2-2 draw. Harvey Barnes and Ademola Lookman scored for the Foxes in regulation while Aaron Webster and Enock Mwepu were on target for the Seagulls.

Leicester are looking to bounce back after suffering a 3-2 defeat to Tottenham in their last Premier League game.

Patson Daka and James Maddison scored for the Foxes but their efforts went down the drain after they gave up two goals to Steven Bergwijn in injury time.

Brendan Rodgers' side remain in 10th place in the table with 25 points from 19 games.

Vardy, Wesley Fofana, Ricardo Pereira and Jonny Evans will not feature for Leicester in this contest due to injury while Daniel Amartey, Kelechi Iheanacho, Nampalys Mendy and Wilfred Ndidi are all playing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Brighton have not lost in their last six games in all competitions. The Seagulls recorded 1-1 draws against Crystal Palace and Chelsea in their last two Premier League games.

Graham Potter's side are in ninth place with 29 points from 21 games.

Lewis Dunk, Adam Lallana, Tudor Baluta, Shane Duffy and Mwepu are missing for Brighton due to injury while Yves Bissouma is seeing action in the Africa Cup of Nations.
