Leicester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion

, KO: 19:45 Oct 27, 2021, King Power Stadium
Brighton & Hove Albion

Leicester City will have revenge on their minds when they host Brighton in an EFL Cup fourth round fixture at the King Power Stadium. Brighton won the Premier League meeting back in September but have since struggled to find their best form which could give Leicester the edge in this one.

Leicester City claimed a 2-0 victory at Millwall to book their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. Following a scoreless first half, they came to life after the break with Ademola Lookman and Kelechi Iheanacho getting the goals.

After stumbling slightly lately, Leicester appear to be slowly returning to their best form having won their last three matches across all competitions. Brendan Rodgers’ men can count a 4-2 victory over Manchester United among their wins while they also triumphed 2-1 over Brentford in a Premier League fixture last Saturday.

Despite their recent improvement, Leicester have struggled to keep clean sheets. They have conceded eight goals in their last four matches across all competitions.

Brighton & Hove Albion saw off Swansea City in the previous round of the Carabao Cup. That result came immediately after a 2-1 home victory over Leicester City in the Premier League.

Following those back-to-back wins, things appear to have gone downward for Brighton. They are winless in their last four matches and travel to the King Power Stadium off the back of a 4-1 defeat to Manchester City in a Premier League fixture last Saturday.

Graham Potter’s men had tighten up in defence with consecutive clean sheets against Arsenal and Norwich City. However, they once again showed their vulnerability at the back with the four goals conceded against Manchester City.

How the bookies view it

Leicester City have the upper hand among the bookies with a home win priced at evens with SBK. A victory for Brighton is valued at 14/5 with bet365 while a draw is set at odds of 11/4 with betway.

Head to head

Leicester City have a 12-8 edge with six draws from 20 previous matches against Brighton. The Seagulls earned a 2-1 home victory when both teams met in September but Leicester had won the previous three fixtures, including consecutive victories at the King Power Stadium.

Players to watch

Kelechi Iheanacho has a good scoring record in the Carabao Cup and was on target in the previous round against Millwall. The Nigerian striker could be worth a punt to score anytime at 13/8 with Vbet.

Striker Neal Maupay has four goals this season and could be worth keeping an eye on for Brighton on Wednesday. The Frenchman is priced at 12/5 by betway to score anytime.

Anything else catch the eye?
