Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy scored second half goals to lead Leicester City past Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.
Brighton is 13th, six points clear of 18th place Southampton.
Vardy reached the 15-goal plateau for the second time as a Premier League player, and has 57 in four seasons.

Out of nothing, a penalty to Brighton. Jose Izquierdo drew it with a bit of embellishment, and perhaps it was justice when Murray’s penalty kick was saved by Schmeichel.
And Iborra found the back of the goal off a Ben Chilwell cross.
It wouldn’t be an easy finish, as Wilfred Ndidi picked up a second yellow card with minutes to play, though Demarai Gray cued up Vardy for his 15th goal of the season.
