Leicester have also lost three of their last four home matches in the Premier League, while the other game ended in a victory. 
“We had a tough game in midweek (2-2 vs. Napoli), we should have won that game," Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said after his side's defeat to Brighton.
"We should have got something from today. “So, you’ve just got to never get too disappointed. I was much, much happier with large elements of our game today.
“There are areas we will be better in and can be better in, and that’s my job to find that solution. I was a lot more pleased with what I’ve seen today.”
