The action started at Belvoir Drive on Saturday, when at midday, the Club’s youngsters faced Reading in the U18 Premier League South division.

Just three hours later, Leicester City entertained in-form Southampton in the Premier League, while on Sunday, Leicester City Women faced Durham as part of their FA Women's Championship scheduled.

Finally, a wet and windy trip to Brighton & Hove Athletic for the Development Squad rounded off this weekend’s footballing action for the Foxes.

First Team

Leicester City 1 Southampton 2

Watch extended highlights of the Foxes' 2-1 Premier League defeat to Southampton on Filbert Way.

The Foxes slipped to just their fifth Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday, when Southampton came from behind to register a 2-1 win on Filbert Way.

Dennis Praet, who scored his first goal for the Football Club, had originally given City the lead at King Power Stadium following a swift counter-attack on 14 minutes.

However, Stuart Armstrong restored parity five minutes after Praet’s opener before Danny Ings scored his 14th goal of the season to secure all three Premier League points for the visitors.

City are back in Premier League action on Sunday versus Burnley (2pm kick-off), before they take on West Ham United at King Power Stadium in the same competition three days later.

Development Squad

Brighton & Hove Albion U23s 0 Leicester City U23s 1

Watch extended highlights as the young Foxes secured a 1-0 victory over the Seagulls at the Amex Elite Performance Centre on Monday night.

Leicester City’s Development Squad made it 12 victories in 13 outings in all competitions with a 1-0 success at Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday.

Josh Eppiah pounced on a defensive mistake with just 10 minutes gone to score the only goal of the game on the south coast.

However, Brighton had opportunities of their own, with Viktor Johansson pulling off a stunning save in injury time to deny Warren O'Hara an equaliser.

It has been a highly-impressive season so far for the Development Squad, who after Friday’s Premier League 2 encounter with Arsenal (7pm kick-off) have a Leasing.com Quarter-Final tie at Newport County to look forward to on Tuesday (7pm kick-off).

Leicester City's Under-18s

The Club's Under-18s celebrate their third goal in the 4-1 win over Reading.

The Club’s Under-18s backed up their dramatic 4-4 draw at Norwich City, in which they recovered from two goals down to claim a point, by registering a convincing win over Reading on Saturday.

The young Foxes’ first victory of 2020 came as a result of a 4-1 triumph at Belvoir Drive, where they were ahead after just two minutes through Kian Pennant.

Then, his brother Terell Pennant made it 2-0 with 29 minutes gone, while Dempsey Arlott-John extended the hosts’ advantage from the spot before Reading pulled a goal back through Alfie Anderson.

However, a second of the match from Kian Pennant, just five minutes into the second half, ensured there would be no Royals revival.
