Another inexplicable but heavy loss to Crystal Palace was the end of the road for Claude Puel. His Leicester City team took just one point from there last seven games, and ultimately a change had to be made.
Things haven’t been much better for Brighton and Hove Albion this year. They have won three games in 2019, mostly against lower league cup opposition, but are without a league win in that time. Considering the “new manager bump” most teams see, the Foxes should be clear favourites.
