Brighton has managed to pick up where they left off last season – fluid possession (58.3% on average, 2nd in the Premier League behind Man City) from a side that seemingly aren’t afraid to push themselves ahead in attack – only with a little more luck in front of goal. Leicester have been anything but sure at the back which makes this one more than winnable for Brighton. Brighton 2-1 Leicester.
