The Amex Stadium will host the game between Brighton & Hove Albion and Leicester City at the weekend, as it sees the return of the Premier League after the Champions League.

Match-day five will start off with the locals standing in sixth place having won three of their four games. In their last fixture, Brighton managed to beat Brentford in a narrow win after a goal in the final knockings of the game. Leandro Trossard awarded his team three vital points against a direct rival.

Concurrently, the visitors are ninth with six out of 12 points possible after losing half of their games up until now. In their last match, they got beaten by Manchester City 1-0. Not the best start to the season for the Foxes.

Both teams will hope to win the game and climb up the table to get closer to the 4th place.

Goalkeeper

Robert Sanchez: Sánchez has been undisputed for the past year, his youth and potential is very promising and is considered one of the key players to Graham Potter's line-up. He recently made his debut with the Spanish national team as a reward to his good performances during this past year. The keeper has kept two clean sheets so far, one being last matchday.

Defence

Joel Veltman: This could be one of the last games in the starting line-up as Tariq Lamptey is expected to make his return soon. The Dutch right back will most likely start against Leicester as he the only right back available.

Lewis Dunk: The captain is expected to start, as always. This will be his 148th cap as a Premier League player. Dunk uses gets an advantage from his height to win aerial duels.

Shane Duffy: The Irish player has won himself a place in the starting XI. After being loaned to Celtic Glasgow last season, he has come back stronger and capable of playing in a back of three alongside with Dunk and Adam Webster.

Adam Webster: The Webster situation is a bit uncertain. The centre back got himself injured last game and his availability is a question mark. However, despite him being injured, Potter will line him up if possible. 

Marc Cucurella: Brighton's star signing made his debut last weekend with a solid performance. His ability to cope with defensive and offensive tasks pleases Potter very much, meaning fans can expect to see him running down the left wing.

Midfield

Yves Bissouma: The Malian controls Brighton´s pace, he is the player to win the ball, drive and start the play. As the rudder of the team that he is, the team will need him this Sunday is they want to have a chance at Leicester.

Adam Lallana: Lallana is crucial for Potter. The midfielder helps in the distribution and can be one of the playermakers who delivers the ball to the striker.

Alexis Mac Allister: The attacking midfielder has only started once this season and every time he enters the pitch, Brighton score. On the first matchday, he only needed 14 minutes to score the first goal and help his team back win three points. Additionally, he gave Trossard the assist which consequently made Brighton win the game.

Attack

Leandro Trossard: Brighton´s hero after scoring the late winner against Brentford. He is untouchable. His team needs a versatile and electrifying player who can dribble past the defenders.
