Jamies Vardy is the Premier League's leading scorer and will hope to add to his goal tally at the Amex Stadium against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday

Brighton have won their last three home matches and will welcome Brendan Rodgers' high-flying Foxes in confident mood, despite their 3-1 loss loss at Manchester United last time out.

Albion are 11th in the league standings on 15 points from their first 12 matches, while Leicester have made a blistering start to the season and are second. Albion will be missing their skipper Lewis Dunk for this one after the defender picked up his fifth booking of the season following a late tackle on Daniel James at Old Trafford.

Dunk will be a big miss for the Seagulls who will be up against the Premier League's top scorer in Jamie Vardy. The former England striker has 11 goals and two assists to his name this season and Albion head coach Graham Potter will no doubt be devising a plan to contain Vardy with his remaining defenders.

Adam Webster remains sidelined with an ankle injury which could see Dan Burn move to a more central defensive role alongside Shane Duffy.

The game kicks off at 3pm at the Amex.

No. Highlights of the Southampton match will be on Match Of The Day at 10.30pm on Saturday evening.

A 1-1 draw is the favoured result at 13/2 and a 2-0 home win for the Albion is 20/1. A 3-2 win for the Foxes will return 28/1.
