Our football match prediction:
Despite producing a fine display in the opening match of the season, Leicester City eventually suffered a 4-3 loss to Arsenal at Emirates Stadium. The Foxes experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their opener, but, on the other hand, they looked sharp in front of goal. Experienced attacker Jamie Vardy scored a brace in the defeat to Arsene Wenger’s troops and all eyes will be on him when Leicester City host Brighton at their King Power Stadium in Saturday’s football match. Riyad Mahrez has yet to leave the club and he is likely to start against the newcomers. The Seagulls failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Manchester City and considering that they are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that the newly-promoted side will return home empty-handed. You should bear in mind that it has been 36 years since the two teams last met in the English top flight.
Highlighted Player (Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later. The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite. Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (Brighton & Hove Albion):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium. Brighton compete in the Championship and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils. Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname. Bristol City
