Leeds and Leicester play out entertaining draw

Leeds United and Leicester City played out a 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Sunday. The clash between Brendan Rodgers and Marcelo Bielsa promised to be an entertaining feast of football and, despite modest scoreline, the spectacle did not disappoint.

The two teams cancelled each other out with strikes in the first half hour. It was the home side who struck first with a bit of Brazilian magic as Raphinha, who is enjoying a fantastic season, bent a low freekick beyond Kasper Schmeichel from an unlikely angle.

The Foxes could barely have responded any quicker, however, with Leeds not touching the ball again after scoring before the game was level again. Leicester got the ball forward quickly from the kick off and Harvey Barnes cut inside from his position high on the left and bent a stunning effort into the far top corner.

There was plenty more football as both sides were keen to go for the win, but no more goals were forthcoming. The result leaves Leicester amongst a packed midtable group of teams, while Leeds are just three points above the drop zone.
