Looking for a Leicester v Brighton live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide.

Leicester and Brighton meet at the King Power Stadium in Round Four of the Carabao Cup, with the hosts looking to reach the last eight for the fourth time in five years and the visitors for just the second time in their history.

It's the Seagulls who have enjoyed the slightly better season so far - Graham Potter's side sit fifth in the Premier League, a point ahead of Leicester - but the Foxes have won their last three games in all competitions after a stuttering start.

Brendan Rodgers' side have scored ten goals in those three outings but also conceded six - beating Manchester United 4-2 and Brentford 2-1 in the Premier League, as well as coming out on top in a 4-3 thriller away to Spartak Moscow in the Europa League.

Both teams beat Championship opposition 2-0 in the last round, with Leicester seeing off Millwall and Brighton - who lost 4-1 at home to Manchester City in the league on Saturday - knocking out Swansea.

It's fair to expect a fair few changes from Rodgers and Potter, with the former perhaps rotating more given his side's heavier schedule.

Danny Ward, Ryan Bertrand and Ayoze Perez - among others - may well come in for the hosts, with the visitors quite possibly handing starts to Jason Steele, Alexis Mac Allister and Aaron Connolly.

Brighton came out on top when these two faced each other in the Premier League last month, winning 2-1 at the Amex Stadium.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm BST on Wednesday 27 October

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Carabao Cup football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of the Carabao Cup, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
