Paul Merson has given his prediction for the Premier League match between Leicester City and Brighton.

The Foxes are currently in 10th place in the league table with 25 points. Meanwhile, Graham Potter’s side are 9th with 29 points.

Brighton have proven to be strong opponents for each team they have faced this season. However, Merson still believes that there will be no winner in the upcoming match.

“Leicester can’t believe it, can they? The game was won! Tottenham pulled off the unthinkable against them last night,” the pundit said on Sportskeeda. 

“Brighton pulled off another good performance against Chelsea. I was at Chelsea the other day when Brighton gave them the run-around. If I were Chelsea, I’d bring Cucurella to my club all day long. He’s a very good wing-back – one of the best around in the Premier League.

“These are two good football teams, and this is going to be a proper match. Brighton are very good going forward, and Leicester can’t seem to keep a clean sheet at the moment. Both teams will find the back of the net and could play out a draw here.”
