Winless Leicester in turmoil after 5-2 loss at Brighton

BRIGHTON, England (AP) Leicester plunged into more turmoil in the Premier League by losing 5-2 at Brighton on Sunday to stay in last place and with out a win after six matches.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers had been under great pressure before his teams fifth league lack of the season, using its defending particularly poor at Amex Stadium.

The visitors didn’t capitalize on taking the lead in the first minute through Kelechi Iheanacho, having an own-goal by Luke Thomas and Moiss Caicedos strike putting Brighton in the lead after 15 minutes.

Patson Daka equalized in the 33rd but Brighton dominated the next half, with Leandro Trossard and two goals by Alexis Mac Allister one a penalty, another a curling free kick deep into stoppage time piling on the agony for Leicester.

Leicester has just one single point and there looks to be unhappiness behind the scenes, with Rodgers having complained through the week he hadn’t had the assist in the (transfer) market this team needed.

Leicester, which includes conceded 16 goals in six matches, has been playing a midfielder Wilfred Ndidi at center back recent matches while goalkeeper Danny Ward has been error-prone and an enormous downgrade from the departed Kasper Schmeichel.
