Leicester’s march up the Premier League table has continued again this weekend as Brendan Rodgers’ side pulled off an impressive 3-0 win over Brighton.

A spectacular brace from James Maddison set the tone for the Foxes as Graham Potter’s visitors slide closer to relegation zone.

Despite struggling to live with Leicester as the match wore on it was Brighton that created the best early chances as Danny Welbeck brought a sprawling stop from Kasper Schmeichel.

But that was only to be a flicker of hope for the Seagulls as Maddison cushioned home James Justin’s cross on 28 minutes.

That strike opened the floodgates for the home side as Ayoze Perez forced diving save from Mat Ryan before Jamie Vardy made it two.

Perez’s line breaking pass released Justin behind again and the veteran striker got in front of his man to tap home.

And with Brighton unable to respond to wave after wave of Leicester attacks, Maddison buried his superb second just before the break.

Vardy’s hold up play created an angle for the England midfielder and he arced a wicked effort past Ryan.

The second half was never in any danger of matching the first 45 as Maddison almost clinched a hat trick and a luckless Brighton battled to keep the score down.
