Leicester City FC stadium - King Power - Shot from outside. Leicester will be playing their home opener this Saturday as they play host to Brighton.

Leicester is looking to rebound following a very disappointing start to the season. This past Friday, Leicester was playing on the road against Arsenal and had a 2-1 lead in the second half. The wheels fell off, however, and Arsenal turned in the thrilling 3-2 victory. Leicester, which stumbled last season after winning the English Premier League title the year before, now must settle down and right the ship against Brighton this Saturday.

Brighton, on the other hand, also enters this contest winless. Brighton will presumably be fighting relegation all season, and they would love nothing more than to score a surprising victory over Leicester on Saturday.


Leicester is the favourite to win in their home opener - here are the current betting odds:

Leicester, 4/5
Draw, 37/13
Brighton, 22/5

According to the bookmakers, here are the three likeliest outcomes of Saturday's match:

Leicester 1-0, 13/2
Draw 1-1, 13/2
Leicester 2-0, 15/2


Leicester City had a weird year last season.

The club stumbled dramatically in English Premier League play, as they finished well off the pace after winning the league title the year before. In fact, there were points of the season when Leicester was in danger of relegation.

On the other hand, the club went deep into the Champions League tournament. There is reason for some optimism at Leicester City, though they would do well to decisively beat Brighton at home this Saturday in order to quell the nerves of their fans.
