The Foxes won the FA Cup last year beating Chelsea in the high-profile final. But this is a new season, and the Carabao Cup is an entirely different competition from that. Often seen as the least important trophy in the season by PL clubs, teams have to take a call how they want to field their line-ups in the early stages of the tournament.

The Foxes did that last season and suffered a shock third round exit at the hands of Arsenal. With Europe and Premier League to also worry about, Rodgers will not have any other option but to field a weaker team. However, they still should be able to a job over Graham Potter’s Brighton. The Seagulls winning 2-1 at the Amex against Leicester earlier this season shows that this will be not an easy game at all.

Leicester City vs Brighton Prediction

Leicester City seem just too strong to beat at home. They were the FA Cup winners last year and Brendan Rodgers knows that domestic cup competitions are a realistic way of bringing silverware at Leicester. He will not take this game lightly and their attacking approach at home should get them a comfortable 2-0 win on the night.
