The Seagulls are still embattled in a real fight for survival this season, despite consistently being one of the more impressive teams in the league with their build-up play and style. A woeful lack of goals has plagued them, with just one goal per game on average across the season as a whole.
The Foxes’ woes are more recent, with injuries hampering their charge for a Champions League spot.
Leicester do remain in third place, but they have won just two of the last five in the league, including a draw with Burnley in midweek - who themselves are one place above Brighton in the table.
