Brighton’s impressive start to the campaign has continued this weekend as Graham Potter’s side picked up a 2-1 win over Leicester.
Brighton picked up a fourth win of the season as crucial goals from Neal Maupay and Danny Welbeck eventually saw them cruise past the off-form Leicester City.
As expected, both sides showed plenty of endeavour in the opening stages, with chances at both ends, as Belgian star Youri Tielemans curled one wide before Kasper Schmeichel kept out Solly March.
But just as the tie looked to drift off as a 0-0 at half time, Brighton were handed a golden chance to edge themselves in front.
Shane Duffy’s flicked header caught Jannik Vestergaard on the hand inside the box and Maupay stepped up to tuck home from the spot.
And with Leicester continuing to huff and puff after the restart, former England star Welbeck got in front of his man to bullet home and double Brighton’s lead.
However, despite looking out of it in the final half hour, Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester did launch a late rally.
The evergreen Jamie Vardy got across his man to steer home Tielemans’ cross, but in the end, their luck was against the Foxes in the final moments, as Wilfred Ndidi’s header was ruled out by VAR.
