As Brighton and Leicester played a goalless Premier League draw at the King Power Stadium, Neal Maupay’s missing penalty proved crucial.
Frenchman Maupay, Brighton’s hero amazingly saved his first-half spot-kick by Kasper Schmeichel low to his right with a late winner against Arsenal in the previous game.
It was the only opportunity of notice, in a weak game, and not supported by a vacant stadium or the scorching weather.
The point resulted to bring Leicester on the table’s third position, nine points ahead of Manchester United which is placed fifth, while Brighton pushed six points out from the relegation zone.
