Leicester City vs Brighton Match Preview
Brighton need to start being careful about balancing their FA Cup run with a Premier League relegation fight – and the latter is backed to become more critical after their trip to Leicester.
The Seagulls are experiencing a similar campaign to last season, one way being that they are through to the FA Cup quarter-finals again and this time have a more winnable tie away to Millwall rather than Manchester United.
But their Premier League status is in a bit more peril than it was 12 months ago, for Chris Hughton’s side have taken only two points from the last 18 available and are now very much part of a six-team dogfight to avoid one relegation place – maybe two if Fulham get on a roll.
The worry for Brighton is that they have been sucked into the battle from a position of apparent safety due to their poor 2019 form, and a trip or even two to Wembley would be scant consolation if they ultimately found themselves heading down to the Championship.
Leicester have been out of sorts themselves, but they had an opportunity to regain some confidence with a home match against Crystal Palace on Saturday (result not known at the time of writing) and we will back the Foxes to increase their visitors’ worries.
