Leicester City maintain the second place position in the Premier League table with a 2-0 away win over Brighton.

It was a game in which Leicester were not at their best. The opening half an hour looked as though City would dominate possession once again, however, the home side made a change in tactics and began pressing the Foxes high up the field.

Brighton started to make Leicester look uncomfortable on the ball and took control of the match.

The second-half saw this continue and the Foxes began to look like the Leicester of old.

Counter attacks and quick balls in behind to Jamie Vardy seemed to be City’s plan of action.

It was a classic Leicester counter attack that opened the scoring. Vardy got played in behind and showed his experience in waiting for Ayoze Perez to get back onside before squaring it to the Spainard for the tap in.

Demarai Gray came of the bench to earn a penalty for his side, which Vardy buried on the second time of asking. His first attempt saved but VAR deciding it had to be retaken.

Leicester held on for a fourth clean sheet in a row, although their defence looked a little shakier after Jonny Evans was replaced by Wes Morgan due to injury.
