With Southampton entering their battle with Leicester off the back of a 4-0 Liverpool thumping and talk of the previous 9-0 embarrassment, the stage was seemingly set for the Foxes to produce another goal-laden performance down south.
However, Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s men performed valiantly to take a point in a 2-2 draw, as they took the lead twice through Jan Bednarek and Che Adams but were pegged back both times courtesy of replies from Jonny Evans and James Maddison in a game that was halted due to a medical emergency in the crowd.
This up-and-down Southampton side have now taken just one point from their last three Premier League matches and find themselves 16th in the table as a result – five points clear of 18th-placed Burnley, who do have a game in hand.
The Saints will certainly welcome another game on home territory, where they are now unbeaten in four and have lost just two of their last 12 Premier League games on the St Mary’s turf, but Brighton possess an almost identical away record so far this term.
Southampton goalscorer Bednarek had to come off with a calf twinge in the dying embers of the Leicester draw, but Hasenhuttl is hopeful that the centre-back has avoided serious injury.
Moussa Djenepo and Mohamed Elyounoussi returned to the squad in midweek, although Stuart Armstrong remains out with a calf strain and Jack Stephens (knee) will need assessing.
Lyanco should step in for Bednarek this week, while Elyounoussi’s return should see Nathan Tella drop back down to the bench.
As for Brighton, none of Sarmiento, Lallana and Webster are likely to feature here after being hauled off in midweek, while Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate are also absent.
Pascal Gross, Shane Duffy and Solly March all look set to benefit from their teammates’ absences this week, but Alexis Mac Allister is another option to fill the number 10 role with Lallana out.

Tariq Lamptey provided the assist for Maupay’s spectacular equaliser in midweek, and it would not be surprising to see him demote Joel Veltman down to the bench.
