Man Of The Match : Harvey Barnes
- Leicester have won their first Premier League game since beating Everton 1-0 on New Year’s Day, ending a run of six matches without a victory in the competition (D1 L5).
- Brighton and Hove Albion (P7 W0 D2 L5) are the only side across the top four tiers of English Football still yet to win a league game in 2019.
- Leicester are unbeaten in 15 home matches played on Tuesday in all competitions (W11 D4 L0) since losing 2-4 to Chelsea in the League Cup third round in September 2016.
- Brighton have conceded two or more goals in five consecutive away league games – the Seagulls last went on a longer such run between December 2005 and February 2006 whilst in the Championship (run of seven away games conceding 2+ goals).
- Leicester are unbeaten in their last 33 Premier League games at the King Power Stadium in which they’ve scored the opening goal (W29 D4 L0), since a 2-5 defeat against Arsenal back in September 2015.
- Leicester’s James Maddison is the first English midfielder to reach 10 goal involvements in the Premier League this season (5 goals, 5 assists).
- Demarai Gray’s opener after 9 minutes and 22 seconds was Leicester’s fastest Premier League goal of this campaign – he has now scored four goals in the 2018-19 Premier League, his best tally in a single season in the competition and his best return in a league campaign since he netted six in the 2014-15 Championship season with Birmingham.
- Jamie Vardy has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances for Leicester against Brighton (3 goals in total).
Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler will take their first test as Caretaker managers of Leicester City against Brighton & Hove Albion, two days after Claude Puel was dismissed.
Claude Puel was dismissed after 16 months incharge at King Power Stadium after racking 32 points this season at 12th position on the Premier League table.
The Visitors Brighton, have had a rough 2019 racking up just two points since the start of the year and a loss to Leicester will do them no good in their bid to avoid relegation.
Leicester City have a fully fit squad for Brighton’s visit, as Ben Chilwell back in contention. This leaves Stowell and Sadler, mo selection issues.
Brighton & Hove Albion receive Squad boost as Solly March, Jurgen Locadia and Jose Izquierdo, who have all been injured since December make it back to contention. However Leon Balogun will still be missing.
