Brighton & Hove Albion, who sit 11th, are targeting a fourth victory in six Premier League matches.

Second-placed Leicester City are looking to win a fifth straight match in the competition for the third time, having previously done so in April 2016 and April 2017.

Team news

Brighton midfielder Leandro Trossard has recovered from the ankle injury that saw him withdraw from Belgium's squad last weekend and is available for selection.

Aaron Connolly (groin) is sidelined along with Lewis Dunk (suspended), while Adam Webster (ankle) will be assessed. Bernardo (knee) is back in training but Saturday's match comes too soon for him to play.

James Maddison is fit to play for Leicester City after missing England's latest match with a calf problem. Matty James is building up his fitness following his Achilles injury.
