Brighton – Leicester City: Unlucky Brighton and stumbling Leicester City meet at the Amex Stadium on Saturday with differing reasons for desperation (start time 3pm ET Saturday online via Peacock Premium.
Leicester is winless in three matches across all competitions, losing 2-0 to Slavia Prague and 3-1 to Arsenal before drawing 1-1 at Burnley on Wednesday.
The third-place Foxes are a point back of Man United but now must look behind them to West Ham (five points back), Chelsea (six), and Liverpool (seven) holding a match-in-hand and Everton (seven) holding two.
Brighton, meanwhile, is just three points ahead of the bottom three, in 16th above Newcastle on goal differential. In the top six in many advanced statistical categories, that means little when you’re winless in four including losses to Crystal Palace and West Brom.

It depends on two big factors here: Can James Maddison play? And can Neal Maupay finish? Either way, we’re thinking there are openings for goals. Wesley Fofana’s midweek return off the bench could mean a start here and that’s bad news for Brighton. But Jamie Vardy doesn’t look lively of late and Harvey Barnes is also out of the mix. Brighton 1-1 Leicester City.
