Who was Albion's man of the match at Leicester?

Dale Stephens beats Kasper Schmeichel - but his effort was cleared from just in front of goal

Dale Stephens beats Kasper Schmeichel - but his effort was cleared from just in front of goal

Albion had 11 star performers at the King Power Stadium tonight.

But we have only got room for five contenders for man of the match honours on our shortlist.

So who would you vote for? Two-goal Leo Ulloa? Livewire Jesse Lingard? Stephen Ward, who was such a big player in the building of that 2-0 lead?

Or what about Dale Stephens, who was involved in three goals?

Keith Andrews helped underpin the whole effort in the deep-lying midfield role, Gordon Greer had a fine game and Kazenga LuaLua made an impact on his return.

But that’s more than five already!

So have a look at our shortlist, cast a vote – and tell us why you picked your man.

Even if he is not among our five nominations!

It was a great team performance. The difference was starting with both KLL and March as they were positive and always looking to get the ball forward. Everyone tackled anything that moved and this stopped Leicester from playing. Lingard was very good and showed some excellent touches and Calderón did very well and got forward at every opportunity. The whole team were mom.

Incredible, why do we manage to thrash the leaders yet look flat and disinterested against Barnsley? Is it player attitudes or were Leicester not really trying having won promotion? If this is Leicester at their best then how such an utterly crap team is top of the division is a mystery. On tonights showing we will go up and they will be relegated without a whimper next season they are an absolute shower.

They have been out getting drunk for days for god sake lol.They have run away with this league by about 40 points lol.They will still need to spend millions and change half the team to have any chance of staying up still.A pure magic night at Chelsea.Pure passion from team & fans alike.
so what you are saying is that Brighton beat a bunch of drunkards and the team you really support, Chelsea, were magic.
Why do you bother

SDifficult to pick a man of the match as it was a good all round performance however I have to mention Keith Andrews. Although he was nopt spectacular with the ball he broke up play, played simple balls to keep possession and when Greer or Upson went forward with the ball he immediately dropped into defence giving them the confidence to go forward.

A great evening out.
