Only Leicester City could go ahead in less than a minute and be behind fifteen minutes later. The 5-2 defeat was the latest pathetic and gutless performance that keeps us at the foot of the Premier League table.

The first minute was about as good as it got in an entertaining first half. Kelechi Iheanacho tapped in Patson Daka’s low cross before Brighton responded through Luke Thomas’s own-goal and Moises Caicedo putting the hosts ahead. Patson Daka equalised on 32 minutes for Leicester City, neatly finishing a brilliant looped pass by Youri Tielemans.

We certainly didn’t play well in the first half, but in the second half, we sunk to a new level of rubbish. Alexis MacAllister was unfortunate to have a brilliant effort ruled out for offside just two minutes after the interval. It wasn’t to matter too much though, as goals from Leandro Trossard and two goals from Alexis MacAllister compounded the Foxes’ misery.

Mentally weak. Physically weak. Tactically weak. It was the first time that the hosts had scored five goals in a Premier League match, while the latest defeat made it five consecutive league losses for LCFC.
