Leicester City host Brighton & Hove Albion at the King Power Stadium this week as they attempt to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals. 

This week, we take a look back to 2018 for Leicester's first win away at Brighton since 2006 and it was nothing short of entertaining with Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy securing all three points on the south coast for Claude Puel's Foxes.

The Seagulls were desperate to increase the gap from the bottom three as there was only six points between them and the drop zone. 

On the other hand, Claude Puel's Foxes were trying to edge closer to the Europa League spots, but with Burnley not slowing down in front of them, it was a matter of time before hope was in doubt.

Penalty woes for Brighton

After the home side pressed for the majority of the game, the pressure finally tolled on City's lacklustre defence. 

A combination of Harry Maguire and Wilfred Ndidi brought down a tricky Jose Izquierdo in the box to win the penalty for the hosts. 

There would be no other player Chris Hughton would want to step up from the spot than Glenn Murray. The veteran did take, but it was a tame effort which was saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

It was certainly one of the Denmark internationals finer games in goal for the East Midlands outfit, his saves proving pivotal multiple times throughout the match.

Foxes turn up the heat

Having not threatened much up to the first goal, Foxes fans would have taken the draw after Schmeichel's penalty heroics. 

However, that wasn't to be the case, come the 83rd minute Leicester had the Seagulls holding their breath. The away side were playing the ball around the edge of the box when the opportunity for Ben Chilwell to cross emerged.

His cross was simply perfect, landing right on Iborra's head, and with a ferocious header low into the bottom right hand corner, he put the Foxes 1-0 up with some of the best away end antics of the season.

The Spaniard rushed over to the travelling supporters and was full of joy after scoring in back to back games for the first time in English football.

Next came a red card for the away side to add even more pressure to the closing minutes. Ndidi picked up a second yellow card leading to a dismissal. He initially looked to have won the ball but Chris Kavanagh thought otherwise. 

The Foxes continued to fight on and defend from incoming Brighton bodies. They eventually closed out a crucial win after Vardy scored his fifth goal in his last six away matches. 

It ended up being a very enjoyable afternoon for Foxes fans and Claude Puel, on the other hand Chris Hughton would have been feeling very hard done by.
