Leicester were beating Spurs 2-1 with just seconds left of their midweek fixture, yet two goals in the final few seconds of the match saw the away team claim an unlikely victory in a game that is sure to go down in Premier League history. Brendan Rogers will be hoping his side can pull off an instant response to put that disastrous result firmly behind them. 

The Foxes are currently languishing in mid-table, which feels a far cry from last season where they challenged for a Champions League spot, ultimately falling just short. The side has been seriously hampered by injury, but did welcome back seven players against Spurs including Patson Daka, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Caglar Soyuncu, who all started then and play again today. 

Fans will expect Leicester to move up the table in the second half of the season, but Brighton will be a tough opposition to dispatch. The South Coast side currently sit one place above Leicester (but have played two more games), and are enjoying a solid season under highly rated manager Graham Potter. 

On Tuesday, Brighton claimed an impressive point against current European champions Chelsea, and will hope to build on that result against a Leicester side that haven’t looked their best for several months now. 

Brighton are without defender Shane Duffy, but Lewis Dunk is at least on the bench. Adam Lallana also sits this one out, which won't help Brighton’s often-highlighted inability to score goals. Nevertheless, Brighton have proved all season they are a tough side to beat. A stalemate seems the most likely result. 

Here's how they line up:

Leicester City: Schmeichel, Justin, Soyuncu, Amartey, Thomas, Tielemans, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Daka, Lookman.

Brighton: Sanchez, Veltman, Webster, Burn, Cucurella, Alzate , Gross, Mac Allister, Trossard, Moder, Maupay.
