Bitesize Prediction: Brighton vs Leicester – 04/09/22

Competition: Premier League

Market: Brighton win

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Premier League table, Brighton will welcome Leicester to the Amex on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, after being left disappointed by their 2-1 loss away at Premier League returners Fulham earlier in the week, Brighton will be seeking an immediate response here. While Graham Potter’s men might have seen their eye-catching start to the 2022/23 campaign come to an abrupt end in west London, the ex-Swansea boss should still find the mood in his camp at a real high. Only continuing to gain plenty of plaudits, the Seagulls still find themselves battling it out in the top-four. Shocking almost everyone across Europe as they marked their return from the summer break with a famous 2-1 victory away at Manchester United, Brighton will be smelling the chance to lay down another marker on Sunday afternoon. Likewise, it should be noted, Potter’s men are unbeaten at the Amex since way back on March 16th.

As for the visitors, while Brighton might find themselves battling it out at the top of the table, Leicester are in the midst of a rather public struggle. Last seen earlier in the week getting hit with a 1-0 loss at home against Manchester United, it appears that there is a huge amount of pressure on Brendan Rodgers’ shoulders. Managing to muster just a single point from any of their opening five Premier League outings, the one-time Liverpool boss will know that he faces a must-win showdown on the south coast. Sat rock-bottom and with some around the King Power fearing that their side could be set for a relegation scrap, Leicester could be in for a stern test here. Suffering a 2-1 loss when they made the trip to the Amex last season, we’re backing a similar outcome.
