Craig Shakespeare was particularly pleased with Leicester City's 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday as he has identified their home form as crucial to a successful Premier League season.

Danny Drinkwater, Vicente Iborra, Robert Huth and Nampalys Mendy remain sidelined by injury.

"Brighton were stubborn against Manchester City on their Premier League bow, but well beaten in the end". This won't be the first time this season, we will have many of these this season.

"They have a very compact defence and they have togetherness like Leicester City".

Asked if it's possible for the Foxes to repeat the feat this term, the player said: "It's hard to say that we will win the league like we did two years ago because the season just started". He's been to see a specialist and we're trying to give him time to recover from it, " Shakespeare said at Friday's press conference. Striking a ball, if he catches it wrong on his toe, it's a problem. If I look at the difference between the two teams, it shows their quality, their know-how and where they've been for the last few seasons.

As the half wore on Brighton grew into the game, but created very little when it came to clear-cut chances, with Kasper Schmeichel rarely being called into action.

"I think the team is confident and in both matches winning 1-0 at halftime, we didn't start the second half looking like we had to keep a clean sheet to win the match", he said.

The Seagulls managed to shut out one of the division's most unsafe sides for 70 minutes before succumbing to a respectable 2-0 defeat.
