Albion have not had the best of luck against their next two opponents in the Premier League.

The Seagulls have a tough end to November hosting Leicester at the Amex on Saturday, before travelling to Anfield the following weekend to take on Liverpool and the stats do not make for good reading.

Albion have failed to beat Leicester so far in the Premier League in four attempts, losing three and drawing the one against the Foxes at the Amex back in November 2018.

You have to go back to 1981 for the last time Albion beat Leicester in the top flight, a 2-1 win at the Goldstone.

The last time Albion beat Leicester was in 2014 at the King Power with goals from Stoke’s Stephen Ward, Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard and Rayo Vallecano’s Leonardo Ulloa, whose double that night went a long way to securing his subsequent move to the Foxes Just two players from that game are still at Albion in Solly March and Dale Stephens.

Albion will be hoping to avoid deja vu a year on from the 1-1 draw last time round at the Amex.

The Seagulls took on Leicester at the exact same point last season as this one, the first game back after the November international break.

Heading into the game Albion had won their previous two home matches, so similar to their three in a row this time row They took the lead courtesy of last season’s top goalscorer, Glenn Murray.

Then Pascal Gross, who came back into the side from injury, got in behind before being flagged offside.

Instead of stopping, Gross went round Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel and tapped into the net much to the Danish shot-stopper’s frustration.

Replays showed they should the goal should have stood with Gross being onside - and it would have been awarded had VAR been in operation.

Leicester were down to ten men with James Maddison picking up two yellows, the second for simulation.

But they still grabbed a point thanks to a penalty from substitute Jamie Vardy, who had been restricted to coming off the bench due to a groin injury.

This time round VAR will be in operation and Albion will be hoping to avoid a repeat of the poor decision they got last season.

But given the form Leicester go into the game, currently sitting second in the Premier League having lost two of their opening 12 games, maybe a point would not be too bad!

With Jamie Vardy not having a groin injury, which limited his involvement last season, and in the form of his life, then maybe Albion fans might bite your hand off for a point.

Albion’s luck against Liverpool is even worse. The Seagulls have failed to beat the Reds in the Premier League in four attempts, losing all four, conceding 11 goals and just scoring one in return.

That goal that Albion scored came from the penalty spot courtesy of Glenn Murray in a 5-1 loss at the Amex back in 2017.

You have to back to 1982 for the last time Albion tasted success against Liverpool in the top flight, which was a 1-0 win at Anfield.

Since then Liverpool are unbeaten in their last nine meetings, winning eight and drawing the other, with that draw coming back in 1991 in the FA Cup at Anfield.

One thing is for sure, Graham Potter’s side will be hoping to buck the trend this time round.
