Brighton sink Leicester in the Premier League

Badly embarked at the start of the season, Leicester added another defeat to their collection, the fifth in six Premier League matches, this Sunday on the lawn of Brighton (5-2). The Foxes had however opened the scoring very early, through the intermediary of the Nigerian, Kelechi Iheanacho (1st, 0-1), but Brighton quickly equalized on a header from Solomon March at the far post, deflected into the goal by Luke Thomas ( 9th, 1-1).

Moises Caicedo, well served by Enock Mwepu doubled the bet (14th, 2-1). Then, on a long ball from Youri Tielemans above the Seagulls defense, Patson Daka tied the two teams (32nd, 2-2). Upon returning from the locker room, Leicester conceded a third goal by Luke Trossard in the area (65th, 3-2) before a penalty from Alexis Mac Allister (71st, 4-2). The latter was once again decisive in added time with a free kick brushed into the right corner of goalkeeper Danny Ward. Leicester remain at the bottom, still looking for their first victory this season. Brighton are fourth.
