Leicester grab late winner at Brighton

Must read

Daniel Amartey headed in a late winner at the Amex Stadium

Daniel Amartey scored a late winner as Leicester City came from behind to beat Brighton and boost their bid for Champions League qualification.

The defender stooped low to head into an empty net after Brighton keeper Robert Sanchez failed to claim Marc Albrighton’s corner.

Kelechi Iheanacho began the fightback with his second goal in as many games to cancel out Adam Lallana’s first Brighton goal.

Lallana ended a 504-day goal drought with a confident finish.

Victory lifted Leicester above Manchester United into second place in the Premier League and extended their unbeaten away run to 10 league games.

Brighton remain three points above the relegation zone in 16th.

More to follow.
