Brighton & Hove Albion defender Markus Suttner believes the unity within the squad can carry the team far this season, and drew similarities with his former club Ingolstadt.
Suttner feels that the togetherness amongst the team will be vital facing some of the top clubs in the country.
He said, “When I came to Ingolstadt two years ago, they also went up for the first time in their history and we did it well.
“We stuck together as a group and I have the same feeling here. We work well together and do things together off the pitch too. That’s important because you fight for each other.”
The Austrian also feels that lessons will be learned from last Saturday’s match against Manchester City, when the Seagulls were given a tough introduction to life in the Premier League.
“It was a tough game, and we were doing enough to earn a draw, but we made two mistakes and they had the quality to take the points away.
“We worked well together and knew that we had to concentrate in every situation. We did it well, but we have to do it the whole game.
“We expected it to be like this, and trained all week on our system for the City game, and I thought that we played well.”
The full-back is looking forward to seeing a familiar face in the Leicester City line-up, Christian Fuchs, and follows the progress of his compatriot.
“I’ve looked at Leicester a little bit because Christian Fuchs is a fellow Austrian and plays there.

“I’ve not spoken to him yet, although I might get a chance to before the game.
“Leicester have quality in their team that everybody knows about, and we have to find the best way to play against them.”
