Evan Ferguson came off the bench to earn Brighton a dramatic 2-2 draw at Leicester City as the hosts missed the chance of claiming a first league win since the World Cup.
Roberto De Zerbi’s side arrived in the east Midlands in great form, looking for a third league victory in a row after last weekend’s resounding 3-0 home win over Liverpool, and duly took a deserved 27th-minute lead thanks to Kaoru Mitoma’s stunning strike.
However, 11 minutes later and totally out of the blue, the Foxes levelled though Marc Albrighton’s close-range finish, with the hosts then going in front as Harvey Barnes swept home just past the hour mark.
The Foxes then face a crucial February which begins with a Midlands derby at Aston Villa on February 4, before facing three sides in the ‘Big Six’. Leicester host Tottenham on the following weekend, then travel to Manchester United for a Super Sunday clash on February 19. They end the month hosting league leaders Arsenal on February 25.
Brighton also have a FA Cup fourth-round clash next weekend, as they host Liverpool next Sunday, kick-off 1.30pm.
The Seagulls return to Premier League action on February 4 when they host Bournemouth. Roberto de Zerbi’s side then face a derby clash away at Crystal Palace, a home clash with Fulham and a trip to Newcastle later in the month.
