Brighton went ahead through Glenn Murray's 15th-minute header, before the Foxes were reduced to ten men when James Maddison was dismissed for two bookings on 28 minutes.

Despite being a man down, Jamie Vardy equalised from the penalty spot 11 minutes from time and Kelechi Iheanacho then flashed a late effort just wide of the post.

Speaking afterwards, Puel said: "We could have won the game. We dominated a lot in the second half and we almost deserved a win for our fighting spirit and mentality.

"It's like a win. Obviously it's just one point but it's one point away after a difficult situation with the sending off.

"We conceded from a set-piece and it was difficult to react but with ten men in the second half we played like 11 men.

"I think we deserved to come back in the game and perhaps to win because we dominated a lot of the second half."
