Leicester City fans are hoping Brendan Rodgers’ side can return to winning ways as they look to finish the season with a bang and land a Champions League place.
The Foxes travel to the Seagulls on the back of a 1-1 draw against Burnley in midweek which followed on from a 3-1 defeat at home to Arsenal.
Rodgers’ side have numerous injury problems at the moment with James Maddison and Harvey Barnes chief among the major concerns as the club enters the Premier League home straight.
And they will face another severe test against Graham Potter’s side who stunned Liverpool earlier this season with a 1-0 win at Anfield.
It looks a tricky assignment for the Foxes and pundits Mark Lawrenson, for the BBC, and Michael Owen, for Bet Victor, have been sharing their thoughts on who will emerge victorious.
But neither could agree with each other on how the game will pan out.

Mark Lawrenson – Brighton 2 Leicester City 0
“Leicester dropped more points in their draw at Burnley on Wednesday but they did not play too badly in that one considering their injury issues,” he said.
“The Foxes have got another fight on their hands here, though. Brighton have ended up empty-handed in their past couple of games, against Crystal Palace then West Brom, but they are playing well and sooner or later they are going to get a result that their performance merits, or even get a bit of luck themselves.
“Leicester hammered the Seagulls at King Power Stadium before Christmas but that was when their forward line was fit and firing on all cylinders, which is not the case now.”

“Leicester have hit a rather poor run of form. It really reminds me of how last season finished for the Foxes. I think there could possibly be a bit of mental scar tissue to overcome there,” he said.
“That said, I’d be surprised if they lost out on Champions League football next season.
“They travel to the Amex to play a Brighton side that not for the first time this season, are quite hard to get a handle on.
“Leicester have looked fragile at the back in recent weeks and I don’t believe that’s something you can fix overnight. With that in mind, I’m going for a draw.”
