Leicester City’s European hopes suffered another setback as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton.
After suffering a heartbreaking last-gasp defeat to Tottenham in midweek, the Foxes once again surrendered a lead at the King Power Stadium.
Things looked good when Patson Daka fired them in front, but Brighton kept fighting and Danny Welbeck headed the leveller in the final 10 minutes.
