Brighton have enjoyed an excellent start to the new campaign, with three wins from four games and currently sit sixth in the table. Then again, those wins have come against Brentford, Watford and Burnley, who don't exactly feature among the Premier League's toughest opponents. The one stronger side they've faced, Everton, defeated them 2-0.

Still, that kind of form is enough to suggest that they're on the right track to avoid a protracted relegation battle this season, which is presumably priority number one for boss Graham Potter.

The Seagulls are relatively injury-free, so Danny Welbeck and Neil Maupay continue up front, with Adam Lallana and Yves Bissouma controlling the midfield behind them. Their only real problems are in defense, where Adam Webster misses out due to a hamstring injury; Solly March comes in for him.

There's also good news on the bench, where Enock and Tariq Lamptey, return; the latter player has been out for more than nine months, so he'll be eager to taste the action.

Leicester's season has been up and down so far, with defeats against Manchester City and West Ham but wins against Norwich and Wolves. They'll also have to contend with fatigue, having played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Napoli in the Europa League on Thursday. However, manager Brendan Rogers rested several first teamers for the midweek game, so the likes of Jamie Vardy, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison will all be fresh for the game. Rogers hands a Premier League debut to Boubakary Soumare in place of Marc Albrighton, while Ricardo Pereira replaces Timothy Castagne at right-back.

Here's how they line up:

Brighton & Hove Albion: Sanchez, March, Duffy, Dunk, Veltman, Lallana, Bissouma, Cucurella, Trossard, Maupay, Welbeck.

Leicester City: Schmeichel, Pereira, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Tielemans, Ndidi, Soumare, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy.
