How did the game pan out?
The start of this exciting tie could not have been more intriguing. [team 71] created a huge chance which fell to their in-form striker [player 1175] but he headed it straight in the hands of [player 169]. He released the ball and [team 42] were on a serious counter-attack with [player 1182] on the ball. He got around [player 432881] and played a simple and unselfish pass to [player 10601] who gave Leicester the lead in the second minute.
Leicester’s start was impressive as they forced Leeds to play sideways and backward who were missing [player 3354] passing range. Leicester were releasing Harvey Barnes and Vardey whenever they recovered possession. Leeds were having all the possession but were not penetrative at all. In the first half, Leeds took only 3 shots despite having 65% of the ball. On the other hand, Leicester had 6 shots with 5 of them on target in the first half. The first half finished with the away side on a two-goal cushion.
The start of the second half saw [coach 1533119]’s side pushing up and playing directly into [player 262274] and Costa to deliver crosses. Leeds got the reward for their fast start as they got one back just three minutes into the second half. It was a good spell for Leeds and it slowed down later. The story was the same as Leeds were playing football and Leicester were creating chances. Later on, in the second half, Leicester scored another two goals and won the game quite comfortably.
A disappointing night for Bielsa and co as not only the result but the performance was also poor. Brendan Rodgers with another big win as they push on for another season with ambitions at the top end of the table.
Which players stood out above the rest?
Tielemans has been one of Leicester’s most important players this season. WIth Maddison’s injury issues, the Belgian’s creativity is significant for the front players. He scored 2 goals and recorded an accuracy rate of 87.1% in his passing. He also registered 2 interceptions playing alongside Mendy in the middle of the park.
Despite playing for only 19 minutes, Under had another dazzling game for the Foxes. He is a Mahrez-like player which Leicester have missed at times. Creativity from wide is what he is good at. For Vardy’s goal, Under provided an Excellent assist after making a smart run in behind. In just 19 minutes, Under created 2 big chances. Rodgers is slowly getting him in the side but its just a matter of time before Under starts every game.
One of Leeds’s most consistently brilliant players, Mateusz Klich had a pathetic game. Especially in the first half, he was giving the ball away in dangerous situations. The midfielder lost possession on 16 occasions last night. He also recorded some good numbers like completing 9 long balls but overall it was a dismaying performance by his standards.
