PREVIEW: GROSS AND PROPPER AVAILABLE FOR LEICESTER VISIT

22 November 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion will look to return to winning ways when Leicester City visit the Amex Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 3pm.

After recording three consecutive victories in October, the Seagulls opened the current month with defeats to Everton and Cardiff City on the road before the international break.

But Chris Hughton’s side have taken ten points from a possible 15 at the Amex this season, and Saturday provides another opportunity to strengthen their positive record on the south coast.

The Foxes arrive on the back of three games without defeat, most recently being held to a goalless draw to Burnley at the King Power Stadium.

Albion occupy 12th spot in the Premier League ahead of this weekend’s clash, three points behind Claude Puel’s team who find themselves in tenth.



TEAM NEWS

Albion midfielder Dale Stephens will miss Saturday's game at the Amex, as he serves the first game of his three-match suspension, following his red card at Cardiff last time out.

Hughton confirmed that Pascal Gross and Davy Propper are both back in training and available for selection this weekend, while Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring) remains sidelined.

Leicester are expected to be without Harry Maguire (knee), but midfielder James Maddison (knee) could return to the fold after missing his team’s previous match.

Daniel Amartey (ankle) and Matty James (achilles) both remain sidelined for the visitors.




FORM

The Seagulls sealed a hat-trick of victories in October, but back-to-back defeats earlier this month prevented Hughton’s side from climbing further up the league table.

West Ham United, Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers were all beaten by a 1-0 scoreline, before visits to Goodison Park and the Cardiff City Stadium.

Lewis Dunk has found the back of the net in consecutive matches, but neither of his back-post headers have been enough to seal points, as Albion lost 3-1 and 2-1 respectively.

The Foxes ended October with a 3-1 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium and a 1-1 draw against West Ham at the King Power Stadium.

An emotional victory was secured against Cardiff a week later, as Demarai Gray fired the winning goal, before Puel’s team shared the spoils with Burnley on home soil.

LAST TIME WE MET

Hughton’s men held their own against the Foxes for 83 minutes, but Vicente Iborra’s goal broke the deadlock after Glenn Murray’s 76th-minute penalty was saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

The entire Leicester back-line received yellow cards as Albion threatened from wide positions, but the visitors defended well to prevent the Seagulls from going ahead or levelling the game.

Wilfred Ndidi was then sent off in the 87th minute for two bookable offences, but it didn't stop Jamie Vardy from rounding off the scoring deep into stoppage time to claim a 2-0 win at the Amex.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Ben Chilwell

The full-back has played every minute of Premier League football for the Foxes so far this season — producing form that has also seen the 21-year-old start the last four matches for England.

Chilwell broke into Leicester’s first team during the 2016/17 season and made 12 appearances in the Premier League, while also featuring twice in the UEFA Champions League against Porto and Atletico Madrid.

A further 24 league appearances came during the following campaign, as the full-back began to show his quality down the left flank to help the Foxes to a ninth-placed finish.

In recent weeks Chilwell has chipped in with assists against Arsenal and Cardiff City away from home, while also setting up Harry Kane’s winning goal against Croatia in the UEFA Nations League.

Pascal Gross in action against Leicester City at the Amex Stadium.
  • Albion draw 1-1 with Leicester City at the Amex
  • Glenn Murray scores on his 100th Premier League appearance
  • The Seagulls move seven points clear of the bottom three
  • Albion travel to Huddersfield Town next Saturday
Brighton & Hove Albion were forced to settle for a share of the spoils following a frustrating 1-1 draw with Leicester City at the Amex Stadium.
 
Glenn Murray scored on his 100th Premier League appearance to give Albion the lead, but substitute Jamie Vardy levelled the scoreline with a second-half penalty to earn a point for the Foxes after a resurgent second-half display.
 
Chris Hughton made four changes to the side that lost to Cardiff City before the international break, with Bruno, Bernardo, Davy Propper and Pascal Gross all coming into the side.
 
Albion created their first chance when Beram Kayal intercepted Vicente Iborra, and after playing a one-two with Gross, the Israeli saw his shot pushed away by Kasper Schmeichel.
 
Another opportunity came moments later when Knockaert was fouled on the edge of the box, but the Frenchman’s resulting strike was blocked by the Leicester wall.
 
But the deadlock was broken courtesy of Murray, as his superb glancing header from Knockaert’s corner flew past Schmeichel to mark a century of Premier League appearances with a goal.
 
The goal also ended Murray’s Leicester hoodoo, as the Seagulls frontman had failed to score in any of his last seven matches against the Foxes.
 
Gross had the ball in the back of the net for Albion just shy of the half-hour mark, but the German’s strike was ruled out for offside despite replays appearing to show otherwise.
 
Moments later the Seagulls had a one-man advantage too, when James Maddison was shown a second yellow card for diving inside the area - referee Christopher Kavanagh showed no hesitation in giving the Leicester number ten his marching orders.
 
Albion worked another opening following some brilliant link-up play between Bruno and Propper, which allowed Izquierdo to play in Murray, but the frontman was flagged offside.
 
After a quiet opening ten minutes to the second half, Gross played in Izquierdo, and the Colombian found Shane Duffy inside the box, and he swivelled to see his scissor-kick saved by Schmeichel.
 
The visitors freshened up their attack with the introduction of Vardy just shy of the hour mark, and the former England forward immediately applied pressure on the Albion defence as he clashed with Maty Ryan in an attempt to chase down the ball.
 
Play was paused as the shot-stopper received treatment, but the Australian was able to continue.
 
Izquierdo was one of Albion’s liveliest players going forward, and after linking up with Bernardo, he cut inside off the left flank and shot just wide of the right post.
 
The Foxes arguably had the better of the play in the second half though, and Kayal was penalised for a challenge on Kelechi Iheanacho inside the box and Kavanagh pointed to the spot.
 
Vardy made no mistake from the resulting penalty and sent Ryan the wrong way to level the scores in the 79th minute.
 
Albion broke forward in a bid to re-establish their lead, as March saw his shot trickle wide, before he turned provider for Duffy, whose faintest of headers went narrowly wide.
 
The visitors could've claimed three points late on, but Iheanacho dragged his left-footed strike wide and the points were shared.
 
ALBION: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo; Knockaert (March 72), Propper, Kayal, Izquierdo; Gross (Andone 81); Murray (Locadia 89).
 
SUBS NOT USED: Steele (GK), Bong, Balogun, Bissouma.
