Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana, Timothy Castagne, Ricardo Pereira are injured while Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Nampalys Mendy are on international duty.

It's a situation Rodgers has been trying to manage and he will also have to boost morale following their late 3-2 loss to Tottenham last time out.

But the boss believes the Foxes will have healed their wounds ahead of the Seagulls’ visit.

He said: “There was a 12-second period which changed the narrative of the game.

“At the end it’s managing that and that shows this group has so much improvement in them. You suffer when you have a loss like that, it’s painful, but that’s football.

“This group of players has shown when that comes we have that ability to jump up and go again. It’s something we look forward to doing at the weekend."

Leicester do however have no fresh injury concerns for the visit of Brighton. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall is available after coming off against Tottenham with a calf issue and Daniel Amartey is back after Ghana’s early Africa Cup of Nations exit.

Here's how Leicester could line-up for this one.
