Brighton and Hove
Brighton were defeated by Everton in a 0-2 domestic clash last March 10. The club attempted to rise again but unfortunately tasted another defeat in the FAC against Manchester United with the same previous score line.
Club manager Hughton who refused to be downbeat said: “Delighted with the performance from our team. The only differences were the moments in front of goal and the quality they can produce,” the coach also added, “I thought we were always in the game and gave them a good enough game.”
Leicester City showed plenty of spirit before having been forced out of the FA Cup with a 1-2 loss against Chelsea.
Chelsea Alvaro Morata scored the opening goal in the first half. The Foxes responded through Jamie Vardy in the 76th minute. But the visiting team’s Pedro ensured and managed to strike home the winner.
During the recent match, theFoxes arguably dominated most of the time. However, a lapse of concentration failed the club to take the victory.
Brighton, despite their inconsistencies playing in the Premier League, have a number of tough and strong players to beat. However, Leicester have a more solid form which will enable them to stand out and snatch victory in this battle. And so, we’re predicting that the Foxes will have the upper hand here (Sign Up to get the most comprehensive match preview and Sportsbook betting odds).
