It is not surprising that after such an unsuccessful performance, Graham Potter's wards practically got involved in the struggle for registration in the Premier League. At the moment, Brighton is 16th in the championship standings and is ahead of 18th Fulham by only three points. The Dacha players, however, played more for the match, so a victory in the next meeting with Leicester would be very useful.
It cannot be said that Brighton plays poorly at home, but it is difficult to call it a success either. For 13 home matches the "seagulls" managed to beat only Tottenham (1:0). The team ended seven more matches in a draw and lost in five cases. Twelve home goals is one of the lowest scores in the current championship in England.
Forward Aaron Connolly may miss the game due to minor injury. Defenders Adam Webster and Tariq Lampty, as well as midfielder Sulli March, will definitely not play due to injuries.
However, Chelsea and Everton are not wasting time. So far, Leicester is in third place in the standings, being just one point behind Manchester United. However, the “retirees” pulled themselves up four points, while the “toffee” lagged behind by five points and played one less game.
At the moment Brendan Rogers' team has not lost for nine matches in a row and the only away defeat in the current championship Leicester suffered in the middle of November from Liverpool (0:3). Not surprisingly, the Foxes are now the best away team in the championship. In 14 away matches Rogers' wards achieved nine victories, drew four times and lost only one match.
Only the staffing situation speaks not in favor of guests, since a number of players of the main squad are registered in the infirmary. These are defenders James Justin and Wes Morgan, midfielders Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Dennis Prat, striker Ayose Perez.
