Leicester City vs Brighton and Hove Albion: Score prediction, lineups, live stream, TV, h2h – Premier League preview
Two of the Premier League’s out-of-form teams meet at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening when Leicester City entertain Brighton. 


Both sides are winless in six league matches and the Foxes sacked manager Claude Puel after their 4-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday. 






Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler will take caretaker charge of Leicester following the departure of Claude Puel as they host Brighton in the Premier League on Tuesday.


Puel was dismissed on Sunday after a poor run of results, lasting just 16 months in the job, and leaving Leicester in 12th on 32 points.


First team coaches Stowell and Sadler will take care of the squad for Tuesday’s game and are keeping the squad focused on picking up points against Brighton.


That result left them 12th in the table, five points above 16th-placed Brighton who are now only three points above the relegation zone.

The sides drew 1-1 at the Amex earlier this season. 


Glenn Murray gave Albion an early lead before Leicester were reduced to ten men when James Maddison was sent off for two bookings.


Despite making the FA Cup quarter-finals last weekend, Brighton have only picked up two Premier League points since the start of the year 






and Chris Hughton is well aware of the significance the next two matches could have in their bid to avoid relegation.
