The Seagulls will look to return to winning ways after defeats away to Everton (3-1) and Cardiff (2-1) in their last two Premier League matches.

Saturday's game is Leicester's third since the death of their chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha last month. They drew 0-0 at home to Burnley on an emotional afternoon in their last Premier League fixture, when the club paid tribute to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

What time does Brighton v Leicester kick off?

The match gets underway at the Amex at 3pm. It's the first of three successive Saturday 3pm kick-offs for the Seagulls.

Leicester got the double over Albion last season, with 2-0 victories at home and away.

Is the game on TV?

No. Albion are not on television again until the match with Arsenal on Boxing Day.

What's the team news?

Brighton boss Chris Hughton will hope to have Pascal Gross, Davy Propper, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Jurgen Locadia all back available.

Midfielders Gross and Propper have missed the last eight and four matches respectively with ankle injuries. Winger Jahanbakhsh missed the 2-1 defeat at Cardiff with a slight hamstring strain, while striker Locadia missed the match through illness.

Albion midfielder Dale Stephens serves the first match of a three-game ban after his red card at Cardiff.

Leicester are likely to be without England defender Harry Maguire, who has a knee injury, while midfielder Daniel Amartey is out with a ankle injury.

Foxes boss Claude Puel will hope midfielder James Maddison is fit to return after missing the 0-0 draw with Burnley before the international break with a knee injury.

Who is the referee?

Chris Kavanagh will be the man in the middle at the Amex. He has shown 22 yellow cards in eight Premier League matches this season.

His assistants will be Daniel Cook and Sian Massey-Ellis. The fourth official is Roger East.

For Leicester, Jamie Vardy is the favourite to score first at 7/2, ahead of James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho and Shinji Okazaki, who are all 7/1.
