To get the lowdown on Albion’s opponents this afternoon, Leicester, Adam Stenning spoke to Jordan Blackwell, who covers the Foxes for Leicestershire Live:

What have you made of their start to the season?

Given the excellent opening months Leicester had in their first two full seasons under Brendan Rodgers, this campaign so far can only be described as a slow start. Two wins and two losses in the league doesn’t seem too bad, especially when you consider one of those was against Manchester City, but even the most ardent Leicester fans will admit that, in the two victories over Wolves and Norwich, the opposition did enough to earn a draw.

In fact, the City game was perhaps their most positive reaction to a game so far this season.

Are fans Worried about the Europa League hampering their chances in the Prem?

Not anymore. Having brought in five new players over the summer, it really feels like Leicester have an excellent squad, one that they can rotate and still perform to a high level. Certainly, the depth is far better than six years ago when they won the Premier League. On Thursday, they were able to rest both Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans, something they were not able to do last year, so hopefully they won’t tire towards the end of the campaign.

Who will Albion need to keep a close eye on?

If Brighton can shut down Tielemans, I suspect they will prosper. He is the key to Leicester turning defence into attack and to controlling the tempo of the game. Mark him out of the game or press him hard, and it limits what Leicester can do. If not, he can provide match-winning moments, such as his pass for Kelechi Iheanacho in the last meeting between Leicester and Brighton.

How will they line-up?

(4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Castagne, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Ndidi, Tielemans; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy.

What will the score be?

Brighton have started very well, but Leicester have plenty of players who can provide moments of individual quality, and that is helping them get results even if they’re not playing so well right now. 1-1.
