Brighton will be looking to build on their surprise win over Arsenal when they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City on Tuesday.

The Seagulls ran out 2-1 winners in their first game back after the Premier League’s hiatus thanks to Neal Maupay's late goal, putting an end to a run of 10 fixtures without a victory.

However, they are 4/1 (5.00) outsiders with bet365 to follow that up by pulling off another upset against a team they haven’t beaten since 2014 in the Championship.

In fact, Brendan Rodgers’ men have won four and lost none of the five previous Premier League encounters between the sides, and are 7/10 (1.70) favourites to come out on top once again.

Each of the guests’ last three away matches have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on them picking up a single point once again.

Leicester vs Brighton Team News

Ayoze Perez and Dennis Praet should be available following injury, leaving Ricardo Pereira and Daniel Amartey as the only absentees.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Steven Alzate are back in contention after missing the Arsenal win, although Jose Izquierdo is out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

Both of these teams certainly took some time to get going in their openers, with the Foxes scoring and conceding in injury time in their 1-1 draw with Watford.

They have actually now seen just two first-half goals scored in their last eight fixtures, compared to 14 after the break.

Similarly, Graham Potter’s team went in goalless at half-time against Arsenal before running out 2-1 winners, and have scored in the opening 45 minutes just twice in 11 fixtures.

Leicester vs Brighton Tips and Predictions

All in all, odds of 21/20 (2.05) seem generous on most of the action taking place in the second half for Leicester’s eighth match in nine, as well as a fourth in five against Brighton.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
