Leicester’s Jamie Vardy took out Brighton’s Davy Propper with a dangerous foul

Leicester 2 – Brighton 1

On the same day that Brendan Rodgers was named the new Leicester City manager, the Foxes beat Brighton 2-1 in the Premier League.

Jamie Vardy proved to be the match-winner for Leicester. His second half goal, from a James Maddison assist, proved decisive.

Demarai Gray broke the deadlock after just 10 minutes.

Dutch midfielder Davy Propper scored his first goal for Brighton in the 66th minute, but the foxes held on for the win.

Jamie Vardy was fortunate he avoided a red card against the Seagulls.

In the final stages of the game, Vardy was booked for a shockingly late foul on Propper.

As the Dutch midfielder laid off a pass in Leicester’s half, he was scythed down by Vardy.

The tackle was terrible as the attacker had both feet off the ground as his took out the Brighton number 6.

If that wasn’t bad enough, Vardy also managed to stick a boot into the back of Propper’s knee.

But should he have seen red?

Davy Propper’s reaction

Speaking to the Argus after the Leicester game, Davy Propper revealed he was hugely relieved he wasn’t badly hurt in the Vardy foul:

I was lucky my foot wasn’t on the ground and my leg swings a little bit with it.

Otherwise I think my knee was gone. I was a little bit earlier to the ball than him.
