Superb strikes from Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes in both halves gave Leicester a 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday Night Football.
It was another special goal from the Belgium midfielder, who followed a sensational effort against Wolves with an equally sensational effort at Goodison Park.
On the stroke of half-time, James Maddison – who again impressed for the Foxes – found Tielemans on the edge of the box. He controlled with his thigh before kicking the ball into the top left corner.
Everton were sloppy throughout and were punished late as a Leicester counter finished with a second. Maddison rolled down the left flank, sending a cross into the 18-yard box which Barnes smashed past Jordan Pickford.
The 24-year-old has now scored in all four of Leicester’s Premier League wins this season.
Alex Iwobi and Dominic Calvert-Lewin – who came out injured in the second half before England’s World Cup squad was announced later this month – have both moved closer to Everton but haven’t failed to find a way past a Leicester defense that conceded just three goals. in six Premier League matches.
Leicester slip past Everton in 13th place, now winning three of their last four league games. Everton sit 15th, with both teams tied on 14 points.
