Gaetan Bong returns to the Brighton & Hove Albion squad for this afternoon's visit of Leicester City.

Gaetan Bong returns to the Brighton & Hove Albion squad for this afternoon's visit of Leicester City.

The defender returns from a knee injury in one of four changes from Chris Hughton from the Seagulls side that were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals two weeks ago.

Tim Krul drops to the bench to be replaced in goal by Mathew Ryan, while further forward there are starts for Glenn Murray and Jose Izquierdo as the hosts go in search of a fourth home league victory on the trot.

Ezequiel Schelotto and Markus Suttner join Krul on the bench, while loanee Leonardo Ulloa misses out as he is ineligible to face his parent club.

Anthony Knockaert, meanwhile, serves the second of his three-match suspension.

For the Foxes, Claude Puel makes just the one change from the loss to Chelsea last time out as Shinji Okazaki falls in behind Jamie Vardy as Kelechi Iheanacho - who broke his hand on Nigeria duty - drops to the bench.

Brighton & Hove Albion: Ryan; Schelotto, Dunk, Duffy, Bong; Kayal, Gross, Propper, Locadia, Izquierdo; Murray
Subs: Krul, Suttner, Bruno, Hemed, Goldson, March, Baldock

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell; Mahrez, Ndidi, Iborra, Albrighton; Okazaki; Vardy
Subs: Jakupovic, Gray, Iheanacho, Silva, Dragovic, Fuchs, Diabate
