Brighton vs Leicester: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and team news for Premier League clash


STRUGGLING East Midlands outfit Leicester City will be desperate to put three points on the board in their Sunday afternoon clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Foxes suffered more pain at the hands of Manchester United having disappointing lost 1-0 at the King Power on deadline day.

Which is a result that cemented Leicester’s spot at the bottom of the Premier League table going into the weekend.

And now, Brendan Rodgers’ men have to dust themselves off and go toe-to-toe with a Brighton side who are exceeding all expectations at the moment.

However, the Seagulls’ confidence would have taken a little dent courtesy of a 2-1 loss to West London side Fulham.

What time does Brighton vs Leicester kick off?

  • Brighton & Hove Albion entertain Leicester City on Sunday, September 4.
  • It is scheduled to kick off at 2pm UK time.
  • The Amex Arena in Brighton will be the designated venue for this match and it can host around 31,800 supporters.
  • Danny Welbeck’s 82nd minute strike rescued a point for the Seagulls when the sides last met in January earlier on this year.

Team news

Graham Potter will be itching to give deadline day signing Billy Gilmour a run out but the Brighton boss is more than likely going to stick with Moises Caicedo in the middle of the park.

Danny Welbeck and Tariq Lamptey will both be pushing for a start having made appearances of the bench in the 2-1 loss against Fulham.

Young playmaker, Jeremy Sarmiento is another member who could be in contention following his knee injury.

However, Adam Lallana and Jakub Moder look almost certain to miss the home clash with Leicester.

Elsewhere, Brendan Rodgers will be sweating over the fitness of Daniel Amartey who missed out on the loss to Manchester United.

But it could pave the way for deadline day arrival Wout Faes to slot in next to Jonny Evans at the back.
