The goals have dried up lately for Graham Potter's men, who've managed just two in the past four. The hope for the Seagulls is that this is just a blip rather than an unwelcome return to their profligate old ways.

Brighton beat Leicester 2-1 when the sides met in September, goals from Neal Maupay and Danny Welbeck proving enough for three points, though it could so easily have been 3-2 the other way.

Strikes from Ademola Lookman and Wilfred Ndidi were chalked off as Harvey Barnes was stood in an offside position and adjudged to be impeding the goalkeeper's view on both occasions.

It's a clash of two progressive, entertaining teams, so read on as we explain how to watch a Leicester vs Brighton live stream today from anywhere in the world.

How to watch Carabao Cup football from outside your country

We've set out below all the ways you can watch Carabao Cup action in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for work or pleasure, you probably won't be able to tune in like you normally would at home.

Help is at hand however if you run into this issue with the option of using a VPN to tune to your preferred coverage no matter where you are in the world.
