Leicester City achieved their first win of the season after beating Brighton & Hove Albion 3-0.

The Foxes dominated from the whistle with a creative attacking style of play that punished

the visitor’s defence right from the start of the match.

Leicester opened the score line just before half time with Aileen Whelan, who’s right footed shot found the back of the Brighton net and gave Leicester the lead at the break.

After scoring their first goal at home this season, Leicester were hungry for more and came in the second half looking for another goal. And it didn’t take long as minutes into the second half, Sam Tierney taped in Leicester’s second from a set piece in the forty-eighth minute.

With multiple chances going over wide or over the bar, the Foxes put the game to bed with a wonder strike from substitute Monique Robinson, who’s sixteen-yard strike found the top right corner and sealed the three points for Leicester.

Leicester’s attacking flare against the Seagulls made it hard to understand how they are currently sat bottom of the WSL and have only scored twice in their previous nine games.

But after this display against Brighton, Leicester will be looking to keep this home form as they take on fourth place Manchester City at home on Wednesday 18th January in the Women’s league Cup.

For Brighton they will be looking to put that defensive display behind them in their next fixture against sixth place West Ham United in the Women’s League Cup at home on Wednesday 18th January.
