LEI vs BHA Starting XI
A) Leicester Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Caglar Soyuncu, Daniel Amartey and Ricardo Pereira are all out injured and will play no part in this game.
Doubtful: New signing, Timothy Castagne, is a doubt for this match with a thigh injury.
Expected changes: James Maddison is in contention and might get the nod ahead of Harvey Barnes. Kasper Schmeichel will start in goal, behind a three-man defence of Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans and Christian Fuchs. Marc Albrighton and James Justin should start on the flanks with Nampalys Mendy and Youri Tielemans anchoring the central midfield. Wilfred Ndidi started in midweek but it is unlikely that he will be risked for this one. Ayoze Perez and James Maddison should be the attacking midfielder right behind Jamie Vardy.
Leicester Starting XI (probable):
Kasper Schmeichel (GK)
B) Brighton Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Adam Lallana and Florin Andone are confirmed absentees with both being ruled out with injuries.
Doubtful: Davy Propper, Christian Walton and Davy Propper are all doubts for the LEI vs BHA Dream11 Prediction and are unlikely to feature.
Expected changes: Brighton are likely to go for the same 3-4-1-2 formation with Joel Veltmann, Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster starting in front of Matthew Ryan. Tariq Lamptey and Solly March should man the flans with Yves Bissouma and Ben White playing in a more central role. Pascal Gross will be given the job of playing right behind the strikers and finding gaps in the Leicester defence. Neal Maupay returned against Southampton and should be ready to feature in the starting 11, alongside Danny Welbeck.
Brighton Starting XI (probable):
Matthew Ryan (GK)
LEI vs BHA Today Match Prediction: Brighton will have to do well to beat this Leicester side and SkyBet and William Hill are offering odds of 11/4 on the Seagulls pulling an upset.
