Youri Tielemans strikes twice as Leicester earn a 1-4 away victory reaching the 2nd place of the table. Their main man Jamie Vardy was involved in the first 3 goals scored.  The match started with Klich placed in the defensive midfield area in the absence of Phillips with Bamford leading the attack for Leeds as usual. Leicester made some changes as Praet and Barnes started and Morgan was back to the squad.

Leicester made an early breakthrough as Barnes scored the opener from the brilliant assist provided by Vardy. A little mistake from Koch provided Leicester a lead within 2 minutes of the start. They doubled the lead soon as Tielemans scored the 2nd goal of the game at the 21st minute. Leicester was leading the game by 0-2 at half-time.

Leeds made their breakthrough with the start of 2nd half as Dallas opened the goal for Leeds making the score 1-2 at the 48th minute. They had to score another one to equalize the scoreline and at the same time, prevent Leicester from scoring more goals. Vardy extended the lead for Leicester by scoring at the 76th minute making the score 1-3. Vardy was now involved in all the goals as he provided 2 assists and scored 1 goal.

Leicester earned a last-minute penalty as Maddison was fouled into the box and Leicester was gifted with a chance to make it 1-4. Tielemans converted the penalty goal making no mistake at the end and Leicester City had won the away game as Leeds could not manage to score more goals and they were lacking in attack. With that win, Leicester has reached 2nd place in the table just 1 point behind Liverpool. Vardy has made another exciting start of the season and will be hoping to reach the record of scoring maximum goals once again. Leeds United has fallen down to 12th place with that heavy defeat.
