Centre-back Adam Webster is expected to be out until after the international break, but his injury comes just as Dan Burn has returned to training so it may not require a change of shape.

Tariq Lamptey is still on his way back from a long-term knock, while Aaron Connolly, and Pascal Gross are doubts but may feature.

Leicester remain in crisis at the back. Wesley Fofana and James Justin will definitely miss out, as well as Jonny Evans - who aggravated a reoccurring foot injury during the Foxes' Europa League clash with Napoli.

Further forward, Boubakary Soumare was withdrawn as a precaution and nothing more, so he is in contention. Nampalys Mendy, meanwhile, is not available.

Brighton vs Leicester head-to-head record

The two sides have met 38 times previously with Leicester enjoying a narrow advantage, winning 18 to the Seagulls' 13.

Recently, Leicester have enjoyed near-total dominance in the fixture, though. Brighton have not beaten the Foxes since April 2014 - and that result came a few days after the club's Championship title had been confirmed. Interestingly, that was also the game that convinced the east Midlanders to sign Leonardo Ulloa, who would go on to lift the Premier League title in 2016.

Out of the nine games that have followed, Leicester have won seven. Most recently they secured a 2-1 Premier League victory back in March.


Brighton vs Leicester score prediction

Brighton have started the campaign well and will be looking to exploits any tiredness in the Foxes ranks following their Europa League excursions in midweek.

However, Rodgers rotated intelligently for the Napoli game, leaving enough in reserve to cause Brighton some serious problems. This, combined with their recent good record against the Seagulls, makes an away win the most likely outcome.
