Leicester City took an early lead but no sooner had they taken the lead Brighton and Hove Albion levelled and went ahead to impose themselves on their opponents, who despite drawing level to tie at 2-2 couldn’t stand the firepower of the Seagulls.

Reacting to the result, Match of the day pundits Ian Wright and Troy Deeney laid the blame on Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Nididi who was .ed in central defence and goalkeeper Danny Ward.

Deeney started by pointing out to a disagreement between the duo shortly after Leicester City went a goal up. The duo were involved in a heated exchange which according to Deeney doesn’t look good.

The Birmingham City striker said: “It doesn’t look great. We could highlight all of their (Leicester) .ers but we’re going to highlight two – the keeper (Ward) and Ndidi – just for the simple fact of what they kind of epitomised.”

“This is one minute after scoring, two minutes into the game – inviting pressure. You’re under pressure, your team is under pressure. They don’t learn from that… They are not even set up to . . – Ndidi goes back to start again. In think it’s a decent pass, poor touch, invites Danny (Welbeck) on, and unlucky for Welbs it just goes over.”

“They’re getting at each other – and apologies to anyone who can lip read!”

Ndidi conceded the second-half penalty, bringing down Trossard in the area, Deeney wasn’t impressed by his act “Ndidi is so much bigger, stronger and better than this. He can’t let him get around him t.. He just has to keep his arm on him and he’s off the pitch.”

Fellow pundit Ian Wright, meanwhile, was critical of Ward’s positioning for the third and fifth goals. “I thought the goalkeeper had a poor game,” said the former Arsenal striker.

In Ward’s defence, Deeney said: “No goalie should be having to save 23 shots (in one match).”
