LEI Vs BHA Dream 11 Prediction: Leicester City Vs Brighton. Leicester City fast losing relevance in the Champions League clamour.
Leicester City needed a thunder strike from Ben Chilwell to break the deadlock between them and Watford but once it came in the final 10o minutes of the tie, the side would have been quietly confident of accruing three points from the encounter.
That wasn’t to be so though with the clash having a late twist in it, one which saw Watford steal a deserving draw on the day. The result left Leicester City despondent, not owing to the manner in which they ended up losing out on two points but the fact that the result now leaves them with the one win in their previous five clashes.
Its form which threatens to pour cold water over their arduous win previously in the season with the side slowly losing its grip on a Champions League spot. With Chelsea winning at the weekend, Leicester City are currently only three points clear in second spot, a position which is looking increasingly untenable with each passing gameweek.
Where Leicester City failed to defeat relegation zone embroiled Watford, Brighton on the other hand pulled off a marvellous result which could help them veer clear of the bottom three. The side scripted a resilient and gritty 2-1 win over Arsenal in a match which blew up as the home side erupted in raucous celebrations.
That win imbues momentum in Brighton, one which will serve them well when they take to the field today. However, we envision Leicester City managing to pull off a point on the day with Brighton’s defence being vulnerable this term.

Whenever Brighton have been in play, Mathew Ryan has been an instant selection for us. The goal-keeper has been in titillating touch in yet another sortie, a player who has emerged as the custodian of the side’s sticks for yet another term owing to his worldclass brand of goal-keeping.
For 80 minutes against Watford, everyone was left flabbergasted over why Chelsea were pursuing Ben Chilwell so ardently. And while there are still question marks over his gargantuan price tag of 60 million, the leftback did manage to redeem himself with a goal for the side in their last fixture.
He’s going to be partnered by Justin James after the rightback made the most of the frugal chance accorded to him. The player was tenacious, pulling off an imperious performance with his well cued tackles and blocks to show he’s capable of holding down on the spot.
CB Caglar Soyuncu wraps up the trivalent from the home side with the side capable of pulling off a cleansheet after enduring a solid season as a defensive unit.
James Madison’s declining form has played a massive part in Leicester City’s waning season. The midfielder has lost his touch, no longer pulling off the stupendous displays from the first part of the sojourn.
However, with the six goals for his, he’s still going to be an instant pick for us today. He’s assisted by Harvey Barnes who has the six assists this season while Brighton on the other hand will see Leandro Trossard be hammered down into our setup given the three assists he has pulled off.
Aaron Mooy joins him up, a player whose penchant for pulling off pinch perfect crosses and passes have seen him seamlessly scour his way past oppositions.
Leicester City’s James Vardy made for an instant pick for this upcoming tie. The team’s top scorer with 19 goals, he comes across a Brighton backline which has shipped goals at will, a team which just about survived an Arsenal onslaught the last time around.
With 7 goals, Ayoze Perez comes in as well while Maupay will represent our side from the opposition after he scored his side’s second goal the last time around to accumulate the 9 goals this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 19 goals make Vardy our captain while Maddison is the vice-captain.
