This weekend’s Premier League matchup between high-flying Brighton and Leicester will be an interesting one. Leicester has been struggling so far, while the Seagulls are only three points behind Tottenham in fifth position and appear to have a real shot at making the European League this year.
One of the last things Leicester City needs right now is a visit from high-flying Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday. Things for the Foxes seem to be getting worse rather than better.
With 12 losses in 19 games this season, this Leicester team is having trouble in the Premier League, and a loss to the Seagulls this weekend could easily send them back into the relegation zone.
The club’s board has ignored the criticism and stuck with Brendan Rodgers, who last season guided Leicester to an eighth-place finish in the league but is having trouble motivating his current group.
Since returning from the World Cup break, Leicester has lost all four of their Premier League games, including a devastating 2-0 loss to Nottingham Forest last time out at the City Ground.
In fact, Leicester lost three of those four games without scoring, and this month they were eliminated from the EFL Cup by Newcastle.
Even worse, with players like James Maddison, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Boubakary Soumare, and Jonny Evans out with injuries, Brighton appears to be a strong pick to win at the King Power Stadium.
Under Roberto De Zerbi, the Seagulls have become better and better, and at the conclusion of last weekend’s Premier League action, they were only three points out of the top five.
Since the end of the season, they have scored a ton of goals, most notably defeating Southampton 3-1, Everton 4-0, and Liverpool 3-0. They also destroyed Championship-leading Middlesbrough 5-1 in the FA Cup.
