Player ratings as Foxes concede late again


Brighton deservedly nabbed a late equalise away at Leicester City thanks to substitute Danny Welbeck.

The former Man Utd forward made it 1-1 in the 81st minute after Leicester had taken the lead through Patson Daka just after the half-time interval.

As expected, each side came flying out of the traps at the King Power Stadium, with both teams pressing forward in search of the opening goal. The first chance of would fall to the in-form James Maddison who, after some great play from James Justin on the right, saw a shot from inside the penalty area palmed clear by Robert Sanchez in the Brighton goal.

The Seagulls also spurned a decent chance inside the opening 20 minutes. The opportunity would fall to Maupay, who mis-cued an audacious volleyed effort from the right of the penalty area following some wonderful play out wide from Leandro Trossard.

It was all Leicester thereafter in the first half, as Youri Tielemans and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall comfortably controlled the midfield and penned the visitors back in their own defensive third. And they could’ve/should’ve taken the lead on the 35th minute mark, but Ademola Lookman – after being played through on goal by Maddison – rifled straight at Sanchez. He really, really, really should have done better.
