Leicester City 3-0 Brighton: Maddison, Vardy wrap up the match in first-half

Jamie Vardy-Leicester City

The Foxes have secured three points after a comprehensive win against Brighton.

Leicester City have moved to third in the Premier League table after defeating Brighton 3-0.

It was perhaps Brighton who had the great chance to go up in the scoreboard but Danny Welbeck’s shot at goal was denied by the Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The hosts got their lead before the half-hour mark when James Maddison netted the ball with a left-footed strike.

Jamie Vardy doubled it for Leicester right before the half-time as the English striker turned the ball into the nets after a low cross from James Justin.

Maddison completed his brace in a spectacular fashion, curling in a good effort from his left foot.

The English midfielder had previously scored in the Premier League fixture against Manchester City earlier this season.

Vardy was among the scoresheet again as he is currently the second joint highest top scorer alongside Heung-min Son with 10 goals.

Brendan Rodgers would have been delighted to get his side past the victory lane for the second time in a row this week including the midweek Europa League win against AEK Athens.

Furthermore, the Foxes have won their two consecutive games in the Premier League this season after going through a little rough patch – facing defeats against Fulham and Liverpool.

Having ended up short for a place in the Premier League’s top four race, Leicester are aiming to do it this time around as they are currently third in the table, just trailing the defending champions Liverpool by a point.
