Leeds lost heavily to Leicester despite having home advantage in the match in the 7th round of the Premier League on November 3.
After an impressive 4-0 victory over high-form rivals Aston Villa, Leeds returned home to welcome Leicester City. “The Whites” held the ball up to 67% but allowed the opponent to concede the net 4 times, after a sharp counterattack.
Harvey Barnes opened the score for “Fox” in the second minute, then in turn Youri Tielemans (21 ‘and 90’), Jamie Vardy (76 ‘) brought joy to the visitors.
The efforts of teachers and coaches Marcelo Bielsa only helped them to have an honorable goal at the beginning of the second half scored by Stuart Dallas. This is the first time, Leeds has lost two consecutive home games under coach Bielsa.
Leeds held the ball 65% in the first half and also had many notable attacking forms. After a hat-trick against Aston Villa, Patrick Bamford had a bad day, when he missed two delicious opportunities, even though only goalkeeper Schmeichel was left in front.
Pressure on the Leicester defense increased in the second half. Leeds attacked quickly, and there was a goal to shorten the score, after Dallas’s uncomfortable ball suspension. Liam Cooper shot high but did not touch the ball. Goalkeeper Schmeichel was startled and could not save the visitors in time.
After the opponent had a goal, Coach Rodgers did not reinforce the defense, instead, he sent two attackers, James Maddison and Cengiz Under, into the field. The correct decision of this military leader helped Leicester to have 2 more goals in the remainder of the second half.
In the goal to increase the score to 3-1, Leicester needed 4 passes from home to conquer the football team from West Yorkshire. The ball went through Schmeichel, Maddison, Under, and was neatly finished by Vardy into the empty goal.
After 217 appearances, Vardy has 110 Premier League goals, more than many players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Ryan Giggs, Didier Drogba.
At the last minute, Maddison also earned a penalty. Tielemans ended Leicester’s impressive day with a successful kick to make the score 4-1. “Fox” has 15 points after 7 rounds, thereby rising to 2nd place. This is the best achievement of the home team at King Power since the 2000/01 season.
