Leicester 0-0 Brighton: Brendan Rodgers’ men suffer a setback to top-four hopes as Neal Maupay has penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel in a stalemate.
Neal Maupay had the opportunity to put Brighton ahead in the 14th minute, after a foul on Aaron Connolly by James Justin, but his spot-kick was kept out by Leicester City’s Danish goalkeeper.
Leicester might have taken the lead in first-half stoppage time, but after Wilfred Ndidi’s deflected shot bounced into the path of Caglar Soyuncu the defender guided his header wide.
In the second half, James Maddison had Leicester’s best chances as he flashed a shot wide and fired a free-kick over the bar.
The point is another boost for a revived Brighton side, who beat Arsenal last time out, and now move up to 15th on 33 points.
