An unexpected result in the 34th round of the Premier League. Leicester leaves a chance for their pursuers in the Champions League race.
The beginning of the meeting was perfect for the “foxes”. Already in the 10th minute, Westergor committed a ridiculous foul on Vardi. The defender deservedly received a red card. Surprisingly, they failed to take advantage of the numerical advantage.
Moreover, in the 61st minute, Southampton earned a penalty kick. Ward-Prause brought the hosts ahead. Leicester bounced back in seven minutes. Iheanacho performed another effective action, assisting Evans.
In the end, Leicester pressed the rival, but Vardi did not convert the moment – goalkeeper Macarty rescued.
Leicester stumble at a very inopportune moment. The team is gaining 63 points. Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham may still push the Foxes out of the coveted four.
Southampton – Leicester 1: 1 (0: 0)
