Leicester win leaves Everton deep in trouble

GOALS from Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray gave new Leicester manager Claude Puel the perfect start in the English Premier League and piled more pressure on managerless Everton.

The Foxes won 2-0 at King Power Stadium, a result which leaves Everton, who sacked manager Ronald Koeman last week, still third from bottom in the relegation zone.

Leicester moved up to 11th after Vardy put them in front after 18 minutes with Gray doubling the lead 11 minutes later.

On the south coast Socceroos keeper Mat Ryan's Brighton grabbed a point at home to Southampton thanks to an equaliser from Glenn Murray in a 1-1 draw.

Brighton are one place behind Leicester in 12th.

"I was pleased with the response,” Brighton manager Chris Hughton said.

"When you concede early, the last time we did that at Leicester, we came away with nothing ... we got stronger as the game opened up.

"Southampton are a good, technical side. When you go behind early you are just glad to come back.”
